ADLINK Makes Network Edge NFV Deployment Easier with Complete Infrastructure Solution

By Rory Lidstone March 23, 2016

ADLINK Technology, provider of Application Ready Intelligent Platforms (ARiPs) and compute building blocks that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), this week introduced a pre-integrated network functions virtualization (NFV) platform that seems to be a direct result of it joining the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem in October. After all, the solution features Wind River Titanium Server as part of it, on the ADLINK SETO-1000 extreme outdoor server and Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture (MICA) platform.

As a whole, this NFV platform is designed to enable telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and communications service providers (CSPs) to accelerate the production of NFV deployments. The NFV infrastructure element, powered by Wind River Titanium Server, complements this goal with optimized media processing and communications for today’s bandwidth-intensive applications.

“Our carrier grade COTS solution allows TEMs and CSPs to accelerate time-to-market on their virtualization applications, removing the need to integrate, test, and provide support for multiple technology components from different vendors and open source,” said Yong Luo, general manager of ADLINK’s Embedded Computing Product Segment. “With a ready-to-use platform, customers can focus their development activities on revenue-generating applications instead of the building blocks required for complex networking and communications solutions.”

To achieve optimal throughput and redundancy, the ADLINK NFV solution offers optimized software stacks and a mesh topology. All carrier-grade hardware is offered as part of a modular delivery system with an open/closed NFV solution architecture that enables TEMs and CSPs to easily customize functionality based on application requirements—without compromising security or increasing time to deployment.

On top of that, the NFV solution ensures system compatibility and future-proofing with APIs based on open source and de facto open standards. Target virtualization applications include: mobile edge computing (MEC), customer premises equipment (CPE), radio access networks (RAN), deep packet inspection (DPI), broadband remote access server (BRAS), content delivery networks (CDN), media processing, policy management, security, and LTE Core.
