09 Jun 15. ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), announced the release of the ETOS-1000 rugged edge server. ADLINK’s new ETOS-1000 is the first high-performance mobile-edge computing (MEC) platform specifically designed for extreme environments and outdoor telecom/networking applications. Based on the dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 v2 family of processors, the ETOS-1000 MEC platform enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) and application providers to deliver data center performance at the edge of the network. The ETOS-1000 provides IT and cloud-computing capabilities within the Radio Access Network (RAN) in close proximity to mobile subscribers. This offers a service environment characterized by proximity, ultra-low latency, and high-bandwidth that allows content, services, and applications to be accelerated, maintaining a customer’s high-level Quality of Experience (QoE). The ETOS-1000 mobile-edge computing platform provides computing resources, storage capacity, connectivity and access to user traffic and real-time radio and network information. This allows operators to offer context-related services that can differentiate and monetize the user experience. In addition, since the data is processed at the edge in the RAN environment, the ETOS-1000 reduces backhaul costs and improves the infrastructure’s efficiency with more intelligent and optimized networks. And with the onset of network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure, having data center performance at the edge of networks can enable specific virtualized network functions (VNFs) closer to the consumer, improving QoE. Attributes such as shock and vibration resistance, -40 degrees C to +55 Degrees C operating temperature range, and IP65 water and dust ingress rating make the ETOS-1000 an ideal solution for outdoor and extreme environments. The ETOS-1000 can also utilize ADLINK’s application ready intelligent platform (ARiP) software, which includes PacketManager, remote management functions, and system management APIs for application developers. ARiPs enable customers to focus primarily on their application instead of the IoT platform building blocks required for cloud computing. The ETOS-1000 reduces maintenance costs by eliminating fans and filters and offering worry-free, weather-resistant, high-speed connections for copper or fiber options.
16 Mar 15. Intelsat and Phasor Partner on New Antenna Technology to Enable Ku-band Broadband Connectivity to Civil and Government Small-Jet Aviation Marketplace. Phasor’s ultra thin, phased array antennas optimized for the Intelsat Epic NG® platform will enable high performing, cost efficient Ku-band broadband connectivity; offering service providers and aircraft operators catering to civil and government small-jet markets greater access, flexibility and choice for their broadband connectivity needs in the sky. Building upon the company’s recent investments in innovative antenna technology and platforms, Intelsat S.A. (NYSE: I), the world’s leading provider of satellite services, signed an agreement to co-design and produce an ultra-thin, active phased array, Ku-band satellite antenna solution with Phasor Inc., a leading developer of high throughput, modular, electronically steerable antennas (ESAs). The innovative Ku-band antennas will be developed exclusively for Intelsat and optimized for the Intelsat EpicNG high throughput satellite (HTS) platform, the first satellite of which is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2016. This also marks the first cost-effective fuselage-mount Ku-band antenna suitable for installation on civil and government small-jets, which represent an underserved segment of the fast-growing aviation broadband market
