Advantech PAC-6009 Carrier Grade Blade Server

Advantech PAC-6009 Carrier Grade Blade Server

The Packetarium XLc is a fully carrier-grade blade server designed for the virtual network infrastructure (NFVI). It combines high-end networking with IT design principles to accommodate the maximum density of compute available in a 400mm deep 6U chassis, yet meet demanding industry standards with NEBS-3 compliance. The Packetarium XLc is the first telco-grade server of its class to bring Virtual Network Functions out to the edge of the network enabling applications such as Mobile Edge Computing and Cloud RAN. Its scale-out design hosts up to 9 Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 or Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500-based blades for demanding NFV workloads. The system’s 400W per RU power footprint fits industry standard 19”racks and lowers total cost of ownership in more efficient network deployments. The Packetarium XLc seamlessly integrates with industry standard software frameworks to accelerate the roll-out of next-generation NFV solutions.
