Sun Intros Netra 10G ATCA

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAVA) today introduced the Sun Netra(TM) multi-core and multithreaded 10G ATCA portfolio, a new product suite that includes the Sun Netra CP3260 ATCA blade server, powered by UltraSPARC(R) T2 processors; the Sun Netra CP3220 ATCA blade server, powered by AMD Opteron(TM) processors; and the Sun Netra CP3240 10 GbE ATCA switch. The new ATCA portfolio, powered by the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS), gives telecommunications customers the ability to connect high-performance multi-core/multithreaded processors directly into flexible 10G networks, providing the foundation for cost-effective next-generation networks.

In addition, the Sun Unified Network Platform (SUN-P), a new OEM solution set delivered by Sun, gives Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) a blueprint for radical consolidation of their network elements, which significantly lowers the cost of deployment.

"The Sun servers and solutions we are announcing today add immense value to Sun's Netra line-up, which has already seen six consecutive quarters of year-over-year double-digit billings growth," said Mark Butler, Netra systems product line director, Sun Microsystems. "All 10 of the top NEPs, in addition to 48 of the 50 largest service providers, are deploying Sun systems. Now our expanded Netra ATCA portfolio and the Sun Unified Network Platform can enable NEPs and service providers to increase ROI, lower the cost per subscriber, and lower deployment cost."
