SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PT (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading global supplier of advanced network communications, today announced that it received the Best of Show-Hardware Award by the Advanced Micro TCA Summit for its Monterey 8000™, the newest member of the Monterey MicroTCA family of products. The product, demonstrated at this week's ATCA Summit show, is a flexible and scalable powerhouse designed to fill a gap between ATCA Core systems and smaller MicroTCA Edge platforms. "I believe PT is the first to market with a fully integrated platform that leverages the recent PICMG MicroTCA.4," said Ernie Bergstrom, President of Crystal Cube Consulting. "Not only is MTCA.4 significant in its capability to bridge between ATCA and MicroTCA.0, but PT's 160 Watt extended power and 40GbE is key to providing application designers a powerful foundation for Next-gen development." John Slusser, President and CEO of PT remarked, "On behalf of our hard working PT team, it is an honor to receive this award for our Monterey 8000 platform. We are quite enthusiastic about the new MTCA.4 specification and in particular, our implementation. It fills a clear need in the open standards ecosystem, not just for the physics community, but for a wide range of performance-oriented applications that demand a right-sized, cost-sensitive, scalable and highly reliable platform."
