The road to 5G and IoT can also be considered as a “race-to-zero” competition towards “zero-latency” and “zero compromise for performance”. However, latency cannot be totally removed by software means. Rather, latency elimination and optimal packet rates shall be handled by hardware implementations. Thus, Lanner introduces 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) modules to accelerate “zero-packet-loss” processing, improve load-balancing and achieve real-time ultra low latency for data centers handling high data volume applications such as telecom, CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) and Cloud RAN.
Lanner has leveraged the latest 100GbE solutions from Intel and Mellanox to come up with its N2S-RRC01 and N2S-MHM201 FAST NIC modules, each providing two 100GbE ports. N2S-RRC01 is powered by Intel RRC FM10420 multi-host controller, while N2S-MHM201 adopts Mellanox ConnectX-4 architecture to meet application demands with explosive data traffic. Both modules have been through extensive, strict testing to ensure reliability and no compromise for performance.
Lanner’s HybridTCA™ platforms, designed to meet the increasingly challenging requirements for carrier-grade network control, cloud computing and data center, are also having 100GbE switching blades, HLM-1020 and HLM-1030, into the product lineup. Lanner’s HLM-1020 adopts Broadcom BCM56860 1.2T switch fabric with 2 x 100G CXP and 20 x 10G SFP+ interface sets. On the other hand, HLM-1030 is powered by Broadcom 3.2T switch fabric BCM56960, with 6 x 100G QSFP28, 4 x 40G QSFP+, and 16 x 10G SFP+ interface sets with IEEE1588 functional compliance.
