ADLINK to Develop Edge Computing Platform for Intel

SAN JOSE, CA – ADLINK Technology, a global provider of advanced Edge Computing products, is collaborating with Intel to develop its latest Edge Computing platform MECS-6110 as an Intel Select Solution. The MECS-6110 is specifically designed to enable customers to explore new business models and service opportunities through new applications architectures in the era of 5G.

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 quickly and efficiently 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.

“uCPE is one of important initiatives that service providers are taking to transform telco network into a cloud-centric platform. By replacing a set of proprietary, dedicated appliances with virtual networks functions running on a single, universal and software-centric platform, service providers can truly bring the power of the cloud to the network. By taking into account the requirements of Intel Select Solution for uCPE, ADLINK’s MECS-6110 is an open and standard platform designed to help our customers realize huge business potential from a vast array of applications” said Julian Ye, ADLINK director for networking and communications.

“The MECS-6110 provides our customers with superior flexibility, interoperability and optimization when they develop applications with varying system requirements. With our deep expertise in open system architecture, we will continue to deliver innovative, application-ready platforms driving computing power and processing intelligence to Edge that we can help profoundly facilitate the ongoing network transformation.”
