RCR Wireless Interview: Scalability and Flexibility at the Edge
To support processing and storage at the edge, operators need hardware that is scalable, cost effective and flexible. The requirements are variable, driven by a wide range of environments and performance targets. In this conversation, we talk about how hardware designed for the edge can meet these challenges with Paul Stevens at Advantech.

Where is the next generation of data centers going to be? Paul suggests “at the edge of the network, handling in one particular aggregation point perhaps several thousand IoT gateways, connected cars, video surveillance cameras, and so on. Where there’s a need for fast response and latency, that’s where we’ll see that level of connectivity and local processing going on.”

Webinar: vE-CPE, Implementation & Test Strategies
Just as white-box switches have transcended the traditional top-of-rack business model for customers demanding greater service flexibility and easier provisioning, enterprise customers are demanding more flexible, open, and cloud-based WAN technologies.Enterprise services offered by Communication Service Providers (CSP) have traditionally required the installation of multiple hardware appliances at the customer site in order to deliver mainstream functions such as routing, firewall and VPN. The customer premise equipment or CPE used to accomplish this is typically deployed on proprietary or specialized WAN technology with dedicated appliances used to implement different network functions. In addition, WAN traffic generally flows over expensive, dedicated E1/T1 lines using MPLS technology and the CSP provides the management systems that are required to operate and maintain the network.This approach has the benefits of guaranteeing enterprise customers with reliable network services and helps to ensure that service level agreements can be met. On the flip side, it offers little flexibility for businesses who require more capacity or additional services as it lacks the agility needed to quickly respond to new business opportunities. Time to revenue ultimately suffers as CSPs struggle to provision new services, which in turn slows the innovation cycle and delays growth.These challenges can now be overcome thanks to Network Function Virtualization (NFV) elasticity which allows network services to be moved around different locations in the network, both at the service provider edge and on the customer premises. Specialized appliances are no longer required, as network functions like routers and firewalls become virtual network functions (VNFs) and can run on open networking platforms based on Intel architecture in the cloud as well as at the branch office. While physical service functions require a truck roll to deploy a new service, NFV provides the ability to bring virtualized service network functions to managed network service customers much faster.

Real Time 8K HEVC Encoder Card for Virtual Reality and 360 Video Applications
Next generation services are outstripping the processing capability of many infrastructure elements, being the load of 8K HEVC encoding more than 40X that of Full HD AVC. But it is not only about resolution. New formats such as 360o video or virtual reality multiply the amount of video information that needs to be processed at any given time. The ultra-low power VEGA-3304 encoder accelerator plans for these new requirements, being able to efficiently perform up to 8Kp60 acquisition and real-time HEVC encoding or cope with up to sixteen 1080p60 channels in a single PCI Express card. In addition to this impressive encoding performance, the VEGA-3304 add-on accelerator can be easily integrated into a server IT-based media processing application through the PCI Express bus which reduces in-house development efforts and time to market of next generation UHD and VR services.

New Opportunities and System Solutions for Mobile Edge Computing
Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) enables developers and providers with computing capabilities at the edge of the mobile network where applications can leverage ultra-low latency, high bandwidth and real-time access to the radio network. One of the challenges of opening up the mobile edge to new players is the creation of an interoperable ecosystem. In this presentation, Tim Epkes from Brocade and Paul Stevens from Advantech discuss the new opportunities at the mobile edge, the MEC ecosystem and the ETSI MEC PoC #7 that provides a single, unified infrastructure, NFV-O, and could orchestration system with the ability to support multiple MEC platforms and applications running on a shared and common computing infrastructure, each providing a unique value-add on the traffic traversing platform. This multivendor solution was demonstrated at MEC World Congress 2016 and involves different MEC partners including Brocade, Cloudify, Saguna, Vasona and Advantech.

TelecomTV: Ecosystem Collaboration to Enable the NFV Edge
Advantech has been busy collaborating with partners to enable the NFV network ‘edge’. In this feature Paul Stevens, Marketing Director for the Networks & Communications Group at Advantech, explains the company’s strategy and, with the help of partner representatives, he outlines three important recent moves. First, a ‘proof of concept’ demo at Mobile Edge Computing Congress in Munich with Brocade. Then, Advantech and Wind River announced the expansion of their remote evaluation services platform, which allows remote testing of Wind River Titanium Edge Server, edge devices. That means service providers can easily start development on edge devices for remote locations. Then Advantech announced its participation in Versa Networks SD-WAN white box ecosystem, which gives SPs a wider choice of platforms and allows them to quickly deploy zero touch provisioning services.
