Lanner will deliver NCA-6210, a network appliance verified by Intel Select Solution for NFVI Forwarding Platform (NFVI FP) with optimized hardware and software configuration
Taipei, Taiwan — Sept 11th, 2019 — Lanner Electronics (TAIEX 6245), a global leader in uCPE/vCPE network appliances and Whitebox Solutions™, today announced that the company will collaborate with Intel to deliver its next-generation network appliance NCA-6210, verified by Intel Select Solution for NFVI FP. NCA-6210 is integrated with pre-configured hardware and software optimal for NFVI deployments, and will help service providers to accelerate the process of researching and deploying the virtualization-optimized network solutions required for future service applications.
Intel Select Solutions for NFVI FP is a workload-optimized network architecture for NFVI as it simplifies and accelerates the process of selecting and deploying the hardware and software needed for today’s data-intensive workloads and applications. Driven by Intel® Network Builders partners optimized with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel Select Solutions for NFVI FP represent the cutting-edge technology that will enable the transformation of end-to-end network management to meet the future 5G-driven applications.
The NCA-6210 will be Lanner’s first NFVI-ready network appliance verified as an Intel Select Solution for NFVI FP (expected in Q4’19) for service providers to accelerate the time-to-market NFV deployments. Optimized as a NFVI platform for virtualized network function (NFV) software, Lanner NCA-6210 is a 2U x86 rackmount network appliance powered by dual 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors that each supports 28 cores and 320GB DDR4 memory capacity for powerful network virtualization applications, as well as fully featured accelerators to offload packet encryption, computing and processing, including Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel ® QAT), new Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) instructions, Hyperscan and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK).
Designed with flexibility for NFVI service deployment, NCA-6210 features up to 8 NIC modules slots and takes advantage of Lanner’s F.A.S.T. purpose-built modular kits developed to work with Lanner’s high-end network computing appliances to offer flexibility, adaptability, scalability and transformability by enabling connectivity and functionality, spanning from 1/10/25/40/100G copper/fiber interface, PoE/TAP/WiFi/LTE connectivity, NVMe/SSD storage, 4K video transcoding and PCI-E expansion capabilities.
“NFV architecture requires the total integration of hardware and software platform to build the optimal virtual network environment for VNF to be deployed” said Jean Tseng, VP and GM of Lanner Telecommunication BU. “The verification of Lanner’s whitebox hardware as an Intel Select Solution for NFVI Forwarding Platform not only reduces time and efforts for hardware and software configuration, but also enables customers with agility and cost-advantages to strive in the competitive CommSP ecosystem.”
