MaxCore HA Platform
Today’s networks demand higher bandwidth and lower latency that ever before, with more capability needed at the edge of the network, including the upcoming 5G mobile network. As an example, new network components like the cloud/virtualized radio access network (c/vRAN) become critical to enable more versatile, less expensive network components while maintaining the requirements of communications infrastructure such as reliability and high availability.
The Artesyn MaxCore™ High Availability (HA) platform – built around the Intel® Xeon® D processor family and paired with the Artesyn Silver Lining™ SDN & NFV software platform – creates an unprecedented level of both density and versatility when building virtualized high-availability applications.
The MaxCore HA platform has up to 352 processor cores per system and up to 400G ingress/ egress support. As an example of its design for highly available mobile infrastructures, the MaxCore HA system can support 32 cells per RAN, in a compressed footprint and with a fraction of the power and cooling costs compared with a traditional rack mount server (RMS) approach.
These virtualization techniques, paired with the latest I/O capabilities, enable short update cycles and remove potential bottlenecks in the hardware space that could hamper the success of these platform upgrades.
