ADLINK Technology Showcasing NFV & MEC Solutions at Upcoming Carrier Network Virtualization Event
The company's featured platforms highlight the growing demand for flexible edge/cloud computing options in data-intensive industries
SAN JOSE, CA – November 21, 2016 – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of embedded building blocks and application-ready intelligent platforms for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), invites attendees to learn about its Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) offerings at this year's Carrier Network Virtualization (CNV) event, December 5-8, at Crowne Plaza hotel in Palo Alto, CA. The company will also be a featured presenter during MEC Focus Day, the final day of the event.
ADLINK will be highlighting its Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture, providing demonstrations for edge and NFV computing based on the modular platform and vCPE using Wind River Titanium Server, as well as hardware and/or software from partners Brocade, RiverBed, CheckPoint and netElastic.
ADLINK’s Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture open framework employs a special, modular design to achieve Software Defined Networking (SDN) and NFV along with the latest integrated hardware acceleration technology in order to speed up the processing of network data packages and video streaming. All functions have been integrated into the open computing structure, satisfying the key requirement of the cloud computing era for resource distribution on-demand.
Unique to the industry, Wind River Titanium Server is a complete, commercial NFV infrastructure (NFVI) software platform that delivers carrier grade reliability and performance for NFV applications. By integrating Titanium Server with ADLINK’s rugged hardware platforms, NFV can be achieved at the network edge or in the data center, providing users with greater opportunities to maximize the performance and capacity of their NFV implementation and reduce operating expenses.
“With Wind River Titanium Server as a software foundation delivering carrier grade virtualization for NFV infrastructure, service providers can gain new flexibility and scalability while achieving significant improvements in operational costs and energy usage,” said Jeff Sharpe, senior strategic product manager for ADLINK. “As one of the first to be integrated with Titanium Server, we’re looking forward to providing a hands-on demonstration to CNV attendees.”
Also part of the ADLINK demonstration, netElastic Systems provides virtualized CPE solutions for managed service providers. Its FlexCPE product is a multi-service NFV-based CPE platform that moves network services off dedicated appliances into Virtualized Network Functions running on open compute platforms such as ADLINK’s Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture. FlexCPE is comprised of a centralized FlexENG that hosts VNFs and a thin, low-cost, device (FlexGW) at the customer premise.
“NetElastic is excited to be partnering with ADLINK for our FlexCPE solution,” said David Williams, SVP Sales and Marketing at netElastic. “Our partnership creates a robust vCPE platform for service providers, enabling service agility and lower total cost of ownership.”
The Carrier Network Virtualization event is being held in conjunction with the Intel® Network Builders End User Summit, which takes place at the same location on Monday, December 5. ADLINK’s Sharpe will be presenting the session The Edge is the Future: Delivering the Future Today at 11:10 am on Thursday, December 8 during the MEC Focus Day.
