5G is anticipated to unlock the new business models that will enable operators to create new revenue streams, made possible by virtualizing the edge so that diverse networking and service delivery models can be available. Recently successful applications include consolidated branch networking via uCPE/SD-WAN, Open RAN via pole-mountable network appliance and edge cloud computing via MEC Server. To drive the 5G edge network computing and accelerate time-to-market, Lanner will join the Big 5G 2021 to showcase its latest network appliances designed for uCPE/SD-WAN, Open RAN and 5G MEC. Drop by and visit Lanner booth at #B302 at Denver, USA from Aug. 31 to Sept 2.
5G/ WiFi 6 Ready uCPE
Lanner’s NCA-1516, a desktop network appliance powered by Intel Atom® C3000, is capable of supporting both the lightning-fast mmWave (millimeter wave) 5G and Sub-6GHz 5G. For networking communications, the NCA-1516 comes with 6x GbE RJ45 (2x PoE+ optional) and dual 10GbE SFP+.
NCA-4025, a rackmount network appliance powered by 8, 12 or 16-core Intel® Xeon® D-2100 processors, NCA-4025 feature 8x GbE RJ45, 4x SFP+ and Intel® QuickAssist Technology, delivers significant performance enhancement in running a large number of virtual network functions VNFs in SD-WAN, reduces testing and validation efforts and accelerates time-to-market deployment.
Open RAN Appliance
For Distribution Units (DU) in 5G open network, the 1U rack-mountable Lanner ECA-4025 is an Open RAN appliance with a short-depth design. Featuring 8/12/16-core Intel® Xeon® D-2100 processors, 8x 10G SFP, 1x NIC module, 1x PCIe expansion slot and Intel® QAT for improved network performance, the ECA-4025 delivers significant performance enhancement in running multiple virtual network functions VNFs, reduces testing and validation efforts, and accelerates time-to-market deployment.
MEC Server for Edge Cloud
Accompanied with HLM-1100 module, Lanner HTCA-6600 works as a white-box MEC hardware platform. HTCA-6600 aggregates up to twelve 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and two high-speed P4-programmable Barefoot Tofino switching ASICs by HLM-1100 to boost hardware performance for MEC infrastructure. The integration of protocol-independent switching capability by Barefoot Tofino™ and scalable processors from Intel® will drive and sustain the true potential of a multi-Tbps MEC network. The P4 Programmable Switching blade support redundant Dual Channel, 3.2TB Switching Capability. In addition, HTCA-6600 has massive storage with the support of Precision Time Protocol (PTP). Therefore, HTCA-6600 is meant to run as many VMs as possible.
