Network Transformation at the Edge
Enterprise and Service Providers looking to move away from traditional proprietary network solutions (Firewall, Routing, VPN, IP Sec) can explore open software-controlled platforms that offer simplified network functions, centralized management and provisioning using (COTS) hardware appliances. Supermicro has consistently invested in network transformation driven by Intel Atom® SoC server technology since 2012. Many customers have successfully optimized the networks inside their data centers and in the cloud using our technology. This intelligence has been widely extended to the edge, including network management, virtual Customer Premises Equipment and smart gateways in many industry segments such as Retail, Factory Automation, Robotics Management, Cyber Security Appliances and Telecom Service Providers.
Managing network complexity in a highly virtualized software environment requires high-density performance to handle efficient workload consolidation and the creation of virtual machines compliant to security and bandwidth control. In 2018, Supermicro proudly introduced the latest generation network edge system designs with Intel Atom C3000 SoCs and Intel® Xeon® D 2100 SoCs to embrace the huge momentum of virtualization technology. We offer a wide variety of highly reliable, compact, flexible and scalable solutions, including Software Defined – Wide Area Network (SD-WAN), Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE), Virtual Router (vRouter) and Virtual Firewall (vFirewall).
Accelerating the Development of uCPE with Intel® Select Solutions
Intel has announced the rollout of a new Intel® Select Solution for Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE) to help communications service providers and enterprises respond to evolving network changes more effectively and rapidly. Intel Select Solutions are workload-optimized solution configurations designed to accelerate infrastructure deployment for a more efficient and future/ready data center.
Supermicro has a comprehensive SoC systems roadmap based on Intel technology. Leveraging three decades of design know-how, we deeply understand that a vibrant ecosystem is critical to the success of industry paradigm shifts. We are committed to working with Intel to deliver an Intel® Select Solution for uCPE because we believe that accelerating verified solutions into market will increase the adoption rate of new technologies for Software Defined Network applications. Eventually, the end users will begin to see a reduction in the systems’ development cost and derive great benefit from using Intel Select Solutions.
Addressing Cloud to Edge – by Software Defined Network, SD-WAN and vCPE Solutions
Leveraging our deep expertise in edge computing technology, Supermicro is introducing a full line of solutions that support the latest Intel Xeon D-2100 processors, with up to 1.6x compute performance improvement compared to the previous-generation Intel Xeon D-1500 processor. These Supermicro solutions combine the performance and advanced intelligence of the new system-on-a-chip processors into a dense, lower-power compact solution ideal for embedded applications. Supermicro platforms also support integrated Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), providing cryptography engines for faster encryption and decryption of messages or information for authorized and intended use.
