ADLINK: Broadwell-EP based AdvancedTCA blade and network appliance
ADLINK announced two new solutions based on the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 Product Family (codename Broadwell-EP). These latest ADLINK offerings are based on 14nm technology-based, server-class Intel processors that bring intelligence to the edge for IoT applications, and include an AdvancedTCA processor blade and network appliance from our Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture offering. The new products target networking, communications, security and other data center applications where ruggedness is critical and compute requirements are intense.
The ADLINK aTCA-9715 40 Gigabit Ethernet AdvancedTCA processor blade feature a dual Intel Xeon® E5-2600 v4 family processor (28C/56T) and Intel C612 Chipset and Intel Communications Chipset 8950. The blade offers 16 memory sockets supporting DDR4-2133 REG/ECC VLP RDIMM up to 256 GB and on-board bootable 32G mSATA flash (up to 256G). Interface options include dual Intel XL710-AM2 40GBASE-KR4 Fabric Interface Channels, three USB 2.0 ports on front panel, VGA, USB1/2, LAN1/2 and COM (mini-USB) ½. The aTCA-9715 supports Intel Data Plane Development Kit and Intel Node Manager 3.0.
The CSA-7200 2U 19” MICA network appliance features the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 with Intel® C610 Chipset. The CSA-7200 is part of ADLINK’s new MICA platform, industrial-grade delivery system designed to support the native virtualization requirements for software-defined networking and network function virtualization, while integrating a wide range of the latest hardware acceleration technologies to boost the processing of network packets and video streams.
The CSA-7200 offers up to 64x 10GbE SFP+ ports with I/O intensive architecture and flexible storage interfaces, including SATA, PCIe and M.2. The appliance is highly scalable with eight Network Interface Modules, offers advanced chassis management and is IPMI v2.0 compliant. The 2U 19’’ rackmount form factor is ideal for communications infrastructure deployments.
