ADLINK Technology is collaborating with Intel to develop its Edge Computing platform MECS-6110 as an Intel Select Solution for Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE). Intel Select Solutions are a family of workload-optimized, infrastructure solutions, aiming to simplify design choices by bundling hardware and software 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 advantage of Intel’s 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.
ADLINK’s MECS-6110 is designed to explore unique business models and service opportunities through new applications. Powered by single-socket Xeon D processors and with 430 mm of system depth, the MECS-6110 provides all I/O front access, dust prevention, wide operation temperature for supports of telecom feature, installation environment restrictions, capability of system architecture evolution, and dual full-height full-length (FHFL) PCIe expansion slots reserved for access to acceleration hardware (GPU/FGPA). The MECS-6110 offer high performance, cost effective commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms to enable customers to focus on differentiating their applications.
