Telecommunications providers racing to reach new customers often can't wait for brick-and-mortar facilities. They need computing and communications infrastructure solutions that can be rapidly deployed at the network edge. Emerson Network Power's Containerized Computing Solution, introduced today at NXTcomm in Las Vegas, is a modular "central office in a box" featuring components exclusively from Emerson Network Power's business divisions. Those components include embedded computing and DC power conversion equipment, precision cooling units, power transfer switches, server racks and enclosures.

Key Facts:

  • The Containerized Computing Solution demonstrates Emerson Network Power's ability to supply everything needed for a rapidly deployable computing solution for the network edge--from the power inlet to the network outlet, including: switchgear, power conversion, cooling, racking, and embedded computing technology based on the AdvancedTCA open standard.
  • A modular solution using components from a single source enables an easier, faster deployment and ensures a low total cost of ownership due to reduced service demands.
  • This solution meets consumer demands in the U.S. and emerging markets. It addresses the need for rapid deployment to new customers or to customers in areas without network service due to some sort of unexpected event. It provides value in emerging markets that often lack existing network infrastructure.
  • AdvancedTCA, which has been broadly adopted for telecom networking and switching equipment, also can apply to compute-intensive applications, and is well-suited to constrained environments such as shelters.

Benefits:

  • Speed of deployment
  • Deployable in remote areas and for disaster recovery
  • Easier planning and permitting than other options
  • Flexible, full build, ease of integration service
  • Complex solution from one supplier - one-stop shopping
