ADLINK’s new Extreme Outdoor Server is the first high-performance mobile edge computing (MEC) platform specifically designed for extreme environments and outdoor telecom/networking applications.
Based on the dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 v2 family of processors, the Extreme Outdoor Server MEC platform enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) and application providers to deliver data center performance at the edge of the network. The Extreme Outdoor Server provides IT and cloud-computing capabilities within the Radio Access Network (RAN) in close proximity to mobile subscribers. This offers a service environment characterized by proximity, ultra-low latency, and high-bandwidth that allows content, services, and applications to be accelerated, maintaining a customer’s high-level Quality of Experience (QoE).
The Extreme Outdoor Server mobile edge computing platform provides computing resources, storage capacity, connectivity and access to user traffic and real-time radio and network information. This allows operators to offer context-related services that can differentiate and monetize the user experience. In addition, since the data is processed at the edge in the RAN environment, the Extreme Outdoor Server reduces backhaul costs and improves the infrastructure’s efficiency with more intelligent and optimized networks. And with the onset of network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure, having data center performance at the edge of networks can enable specific virtualized network functions (VNFs) closer to the consumer, improving QoE.
Attributes such as shock and vibration resistance, -40? to +55? operating temperature range, and IP65 water and dust ingress rating make the Extreme Outdoor Server an ideal solution for outdoor and extreme environments. The Extreme Outdoor Server can also utilize ADLINK’s application ready intelligent platform (ARiP) software, which includes PacketManager, remote management functions, and system management APIs for application developers. ARiPs enable customers to focus primarily on their application instead of the IoT platform building blocks required for cloud computing. The Extreme Outdoor Server reduces maintenance costs by eliminating fans and filters and offering worry-free, weather-resistant, high-speed connections for copper or fiber options.
