NEI streamlines carrier-class deployments by providing rack and frame-level design, integration services, and specific expertise in designing and validating system interoperability of multi-vendor ATCA based solutions.  The company's two newest ATCA products, the A-13000 R2 and A-3000, deliver the highest-performance processing power available for 40G backplane equipment.  These ATCA platforms are NEBS Level 3, ETSI compliant and purpose-built for carrier-class wireless networks that deliver next-generation services.  Both products feature greater scalability and higher availability than competitive solutions.  Their advanced performance is based on newly standardized packet-switched backplane topologies, node-based switching for board communications, and centralized management with a browser-based, Intel-compatible IPMI.
