ADLINK Technology, Inc., a global provider of Edge Computing products, announces that it is collaborating with Intel to develop its latest Edge Computing platform MECS-6110 as an Intel Select Solution for Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE). The platform will be available in August 2019.
Intel Select Solutions are a family of workload-optimized infrastructure solutions aiming to help end users simplify design choices by bundling hardware and software pieces together while making high performance more predictable. Intel Select Solutions for uCPE are based on the Intel Xeon D processors and can be deployed for various network function virtualized (NFV) applications by network operators, service providers, cloud service providers, or enterprise infrastructure companies.
All Intel Select Solutions feature workload-optimized stacks tuned to take full advantage of Intel architecture. To be verified as an Intel Select Solution, ADLINK’s MECS-6110 meets the performance threshold defined by Intel Select Plus Solution for uCPE, one of two configurations for Intel Select Solutions for uCPE reference designs, which uses a 14-core Intel Xeon D processor and high-performance network, storage and integrated platform acceleration products from Intel for maximum virtual machine density.
The MECS-6110 is specifically designed to enable customers to explore new business models and service opportunities through new applications. Powered by advanced single-socket Intel Xeon D processors and with 430mm of system depth, ADLINK’s new 1U Edge Computing platform MECS-6110 provides all I/O front access, dust prevention, wide operation temperature for supports of telecom feature, installation environment restrictions, capability of system architecture evolution, and dual full-height full-length (FHFL) PCIe expansion slots reserved for access to acceleration hardware (GPU/FGPA). The MECS-6110 offer commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms to enable customers to focus on differentiating their applications.
