Advantech Upgrades Networking Platforms
FREMONT, CA— Advantech has recently enabled upgrades throughout its full spectrum of networking gear including high-end network appliances, carrier-grade server series, Packetarium XL blade server family, and Netarium AdvancedTCA systems. The upgrades allow the customers to take advantage of the benefits of higher packet processing throughput and compute performance across a fully scalable product line. Previously codenamed as "Broadwell-EP", Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 CPUs powers the upgrades.
The field-proven systems enable networking OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and carriers that prepare next generations product rollouts tap into the new performance gains. Advantech has successfully deployed platforms based on the advanced Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family across vast range of applications. The platform is already set to offer faster PCI Gen 3 based network I/O that comes with the large memory bandwidth and capacity of DDR4 technology.
Keeping in mind the fact that the customers need to gain visibility and control over critical shared resources such as processor caches and main memory, Advantech has built Intel Resource Director Technology on 14nm process technology. Its intelligently orchestrated, enhanced utilization features and service levels will add efficiencies to software defined infrastructure and speeds up the telecom and enterprise cloud computing.
The performance upgrades are also expected to provide a significant boost to applications that demand highest speed packet handling and flow processing on Intel architecture in use cases s like policy control and enforcement, quality-of-service, network security and network analytics.
“Advantech's timely product upgrades in phase with Intel silicon release provides customers a rock-solid foundation to drive performance improvements, constantly improve efficiencies, quantify time-to-market benefits and reduce overall life cycle management costs,” said Peter Marek, Senior Director of x86 solutions at Advantech's Networks and Communications Group.
