Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture, otherwise known as AdvancedTCA or ATCA, was one of the telecom industry's most hyped concepts entering 2007. It wasn't quite as lofty as IMS, but close, as ATCA seemed set to revolutionize telecom hardware product engineering. However, what had been expected to be a multi-billion market by this point is probably finishing around $700 million this year, according to one consulting group. Also, Intel and Motorola have jettisoned units they had focused on the ATCA cause.
