HEITEC develops and manufactures fast high-performance system platforms for a leading provider of telecommunications equipment.


The high-end system platform is based on ATCA (Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture), the future-oriented, flexible standard for powerful communications equipment. 
HEITEC specifically adapted the standard to meet customer requirements and expanded it to include a high-performance cooling concept and improved high-speed transmission on the backplane, the rear panel of an electronic device with several slots for modules.  With this design, HEITEC achieved increased performance and higher data throughput.


  • Higher system availability
  • Significant reduction in costs thanks to an innovative housing concept with 6 slots
  • Higher data throughput of 10 Gbit/sec
  • Increased performance
