SKU: UTC004  /  

The VadaTech UTC004 is the most feature-rich MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) in the market. Its management software is based on VadaTech’s robust Carrier Manager and Shelf Manager which have been deployed for years with proven results. The MCMC manages the Power Modules, Cooling Units, and up to 12 AMCs within the chassis. It also manages the optional PCIe Gen3, SRIO Gen2, 40GbE/10GbE or Crossbar Fat Pipe switches as well as the standard 1GbE with 10GbE uplink Base Channel switch. The Ethernet switches are managed with an enterprise grade Layer 3 switching/routing stack and support Synchronous Ethernet.

The UTC004 runs Linux on its centralized quad-core CPU and is hot-swappable/fully redundant when used in conjunction with a second instance of the module. The firmware is HPM.2 compliant which allows for easy upgrades. It provides Master JTAG services to the AMCs via the JSM. The UTC004 has advanced clocking features including grand master clock and high-quality clock distribution/synthesis.
