This high-performance platform will help our customers to utilize the latest data center and Edge compute technologies in order to differentiate their solutions and utilize the best platform for their applications.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2017
ADLINK Technology, a global provider of leading edge computing solutions that drive data-to-decision applications across industries, has announced a new data center compute node based on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors. This new board, referenced as MCN-2610, will be the company’s first product based on the OCP-Accepted™ OpenSled specification. The offering will help advance next generation architectures in support of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software-Defined Networking (SDN), and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) applications. The OpenSled specification is based on ADLINK’s Open Compute Carrier-grade Edge Reference Architecture (OCCERA) and was approved as a standard specification by Open Compute Project in April.
Hardware acceleration is the latest high-value feature in the move toward Edge, Cloud and Fog computing. Upcoming 5G solutions will require very low latency, support of many cores and be utilized for cross-network cloud infrastructure. The Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor offers up to 28 cores, and supports 48 PCI Express 3.0 lanes and 4x10GbE lanes to address the challenges in next-generation networking, which combines security, NFV, and wireless communications on a common platform.
“Technologies such as Edge Computing and 5G will provide a faster data delivery to customers requiring high-speed memory, high-bandwidth and high expansion capabilities for high-speed devices in the competitive world of 5G.” said Yong Luo, General Manager of ADLINK’s Networking, Communication and Public Business Unit. “We are pleased to add this server platform to our highly flexible OCCERA product family. This high-performance platform will help our customers to utilize the latest data center and Edge compute technologies in order to differentiate their solutions and utilize the best platform for their applications.”
ADLINK’s first OpenSled sample is targeted for release in early Q3.
