Force Computers ' AdvancedTCA Common Platform concept implements a single high availability system architecture across all hardware and software layers. This enables typical equipment manufacturers to efficiently execute a wide variety of communication applications and Network Elements, whether they be server-type or control- and data-plane architectures in the Access and Edge Networks of the wireline and wireless infrastructure. By using this approach, cost savings and reduced total cost of ownership can be realized on multiple levels ranging from more efficient design, harmonized logistics, and less training to cost savings due to volume deployment and respective lower unit pricing effects. As a result, Force Computers designs and offers fully integrated High Availability platforms that are optimized to be application-ready, such as with the aforementioned application scenarios in the converged network. These platforms provide an ideal foundation to meet today's TCO targets while maintaining technology headroom and application readiness
