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...

Moving the Bar for High End Networking Gear

Moving the Bar for High End Networking Gear

Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco kicked off today with another new wave of announcements. After Advantech’s introduction of a new range of entry-level appliances in unison with the Intel Atom processor C2000family launch last week , today’s news addresses the other end of the spectrum, the spot where very high-end networking gear screams out for all the performance it can get – lots of cores and lots of 10G/40G...

Breaking the Terabit per Second Barrier!

Breaking the Terabit per Second Barrier!

Borderless enterprise, secure data center and cloud computing applications are all pushing for huge increases in I/O density and higher data throughput per rack unit. The need for more I/O and more processing per packet basically means you need the highest performance CPUs with as much offload and acceleration as you can give them. At Interop today, Advantech unveiled a pioneering new system architecture which raises the bar on system...

AdvancedTCA shows solid growth in 2012

AdvancedTCA shows solid growth in 2012

2012 has been a solid year for AdvancedTCA (ATCA) blades and systems. VDC Research believes that 2012 will end up with an almost 20% growth in the ATCA blade market alone. Cellular build out around the world, particularly in developing nations such as China, and the jump to LTE in North America and Europe are driving this growth.  When you add in the acceleration of LTE deployments in 2013 to increase bandwidth that will satisfy...

LTE Packet Core goes small scale

LTE Packet Core goes small scale

So, you are driving along using a mobile phone as your navigator and all of a sudden, the map disappears.  You take a look at the screen and see the reason immediately – the symbol indicating the type of network connection has turned into an E (for Edge.)  In today’s world, the definition of ‘the boonies’ is anywhere with a slow (OK, very very slow) Edge connection. Even as LTE and other ‘4G’ networks expand, the service...
