IDF14: 100G Traffic Handling Needs a Whole New Breed of Networking Gear

IDF14: 100G Traffic Handling Needs a Whole New Breed of Networking Gear

If you’re into ultra-high-performance networking gear or you’d like to get a first look at 100G flow processing with silicon photonics, it will be well worth your while visiting the Advantech booth in the Silicon Phonics community at IDF14 (Booth #154). Our IDF showcase there introduces the FWA-6512C, Advantech’s first ultra-performance 2U rack-mount network appliance, powered by four high-end, data center-class Intel® Xeon®...

IDF14: Accelerating Network Platform Evolution with the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3

IDF14: Accelerating Network Platform Evolution with the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3

  IDF opens its doors on Sep 9 and this year the theme is about Developers, Makers and Creators coming together in Intel’s “playground” for innovation. For many of us in the networking business it’s an opportunity to discover (new) ways of designing equipment that can handle 40G and 100G traffic, advancing our NFV strategies and checking the pulse of SDN, perhaps even all three. For those making gear that’s not so...

Test Drive 40G and 100G Networking Gear

If you want to test out a quad socket Intel Xeon-based network appliance with 48 cores and sixteen 40G ports with hardware crypto acceleration, now  you can. It’s worth noting that the hardware will cost about the same price as your company car but you might like to know that customers are finding it easier to leverage Advantech’s new remote evaluation services rather than ruin their R&D budgets or wait for the next...

SDN & NFV demos @Interop

SDN & NFV demos @Interop

At Interop 2014 in Las Vegas last week it was interesting to see the numbers presented during IDC’s annual Interop breakfast meeting, showing the analyst’s latest networking market forecasts. 10GbE and 40GbE datacenter port shipments are expected to reach 20 million ports in 2014 and account for 90% of all datacenter Ethernet switch spend, totally eclipsing 100MbE and Gigabit Ethernet shipments. Virtualization is, according to the...
