Netarium-14 14-SLOT, 19 ” wide 13U high AdvancedTCA Shelf fully integrated reference system

Advantech’s Netarium series of ATCA reference systems are specifically targeted to help network equipment providers reach superior levels of performance over traditional rackmount servers or appliances and extend their product range at the high end. The series represents a new generation of systems which offer higher performance, greater scalability and extreme flexibility by using the latest 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40G) backplanes, switches and application blades.

Advantech optimizes the systems to achieve the highest possible density at the rack level, enabling a maximum number of processor cores, network ports and switching capacity.

Each system is tailored for customers to rapidly deploy in data communication markets for applications which require faster and deeper packet processing such as policy and charging enforcement, network security, real-time traffic monitoring, load balancing, subscriber analytics and content optimization among others. As ATCA was designed to meet the carrier-grade constraints of the telecom industry, the systems integrate the chassis, cooling, power distribution and shelf management into an off-the-shelf platform solution capable of superior 5 NINES availability and reliability.

Rising volumes of data traffic, media-rich applications and data center consolidation are driving the need for increased bandwidth scalability and high-speed connections. To meet these challenges, Advantech’s flagship Netarium-14 targets the high-end market where equipment providers require superior performance, scalability and deployment flexibility for their large enterprise, managed security service provider or carrier customers.

Many different payloads can be integrated into Advantech Netariu systems and configured to address diverse industry applications. For more details on integrating a specific configuration please contact


The VT825 utilizes the most successful design in the ATCA market, with over 15,000 global installs. The 13U chassis provides up to 14 front and RTM ATCA slots.

The backplane for the VT825 can be 10G or 40G Dual Star topology (Mesh is available upon request). Two PEM (Power Entry Modules) are standard with options for 4x for redundancy. The front air filter is removable and an EMC mat below the card cage helps to redirect airflow.

The chassis is NEBS compliant with front-to-rear airflow. The VadaTech shelf manager is standard, but other options are available.
