Take a closer look at how Advantech CompactPCI can meet your business needs now and into the future
This paper investigates current trends in Big Data and Big Data Analytics, and looks at encryption techniques that provide the necessary integrated support for stronger data security.
This whitepaper describes how the T-Metro 8006 is so much more than an Ethernet switch. With an array of advanced features the T-Metro 8006 has significant control plane processing capability. As one of the industry’s leading providers of embedded computing technology, Advantech worked with Telco Systems to help create a solution that marries best of breed switching and application processing technology. Advantech brought together their 40GE ATCA switch blade with the latest 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor to provide Telco Systems a high performance core platform. When combined with Telco Systems’ high-density ATCA line cards and the BiNOX OS, the T-Metro 8006 was born.
At a time when forklift upgrades are common, Advantech harnesses the power of the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family and further extends the life of a customer’s softswitch platform architecture.
Smaller scale RANs (Radio Access Network) are not too difficult to architect as there are a number of options available for variously sized cells, antenna and eNodeB combinations. The core network required for LTE is more tricky to scale down cost effectively. The Evolved Packet Core or EPC is built around a number of complex network elements and gateways. With each element in charge of a key function and taking into account network redundancy, this typically involves a lot of large scale hardware platforms. In a major urban area where a network would support many hundreds of thousands of subscribers (some forecasts predict that some will soon be over 1 million), the investment in equipment is easily justified. As capacities decrease it’s not so easy, so how then can service providers take best advantage of the opportunity to deploy across the multitude of smaller rural communities? Polaris Networks, working with Advantech and Comtel has built an innovative, flexible and highly affordable solution.
This white paper is the second in a series which will take a closer look at the flexibility which FMMs bring to the fabric interface enabling 40GbE connectivity of Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 Processor based blades to 40G ATCA backplanes. Various system topologies will be covered which pave the way for the highest performance, consolidated control and data plane workloads under a single IA architecture.
After more than a decade of acquisitions and shake-ups, many OEMs are enduring the costs of maintaining multiple hardware platforms and face challenges to drive core product development across dissimilar technology bases. Enter the “Common Platform” strategists who are often confronted with making inter-divisional peace whilst preparing for the next generation platform rollout.
This white paper is the first in a series which will discuss the design advantages of Fabric Mezzanine Modules (FMMs). This paper discusses the merits of Advantech’s Customized Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (C2OTS) concept through the use of FMM technology applied to AdvancedTCA (ATCA) blades. It explains the importance of C2OTS for systems integrators, security and network equipment providers as well as government and defense communications contractors.
