ADLINK to Showcase Open Compute Project Carrier Grade for Edge Computing at Light Reading’s Big Communication Event

New OpenRack and OpenSled infrastructure will be shown representing a significant step in the evolution of OCP’s CG-OpenRack-19 specification

San Jose, CA – May 10, 2018 – ADLINK, a leading provider of telecom equipment and Plantinum member of the Open Compute Project (OCP),  will be featuring carrier grade CG-OpenRack-19 solutions at the Big Communication Event in Booth B419 on May 14-16 in Austin, TX.  These solutions include Multi-access Edge Compute solutions from multiple OCP partners and suppliers.

The Big Communications Event (BCE) is the communication industry’s meeting point to discuss the major changes affecting its future.  BCE brings telecom experts from around the globe. The conference and expo covers the industry’s most pressing topics including automation, edge computing, intent-based networking, artificial intelligence, cloud-native software, advanced security strategies and 5G networks.

ADLINK and its partners have developed networking and communications platforms that enable Multi-access Edge Computing and cloud architectures for telecom operators and data centers. ADLINK’s Open Compute Carrier-grade Edge Reference Architecture (OCCERA) and OCP Solutions address the requirements for low-latency, high-bandwidth and compute-intensive applications driven by the needs of security, deep packet inspection (DPI), edge computing, virtual network functions, 5G evolution and other revenue producing solutions for operators.

At BCE, ADLINK, and partners nVent and Radisys will jointly showcase OCP-ACCEPTED™ OpenRack and OpenSled configurations that enable openstack resources to easily power virtualized applications at the edge. These specifications offer telecom data center operators the benefits of open platform standards combined with the required carrier-grade and environmental enhancements for edge computing in telecom data center environments. The open system approach drives innovation in the market and allows operators to avoid vendor lock-in that comes with propriety solutions. In addition, the multi-vendor solution offers seamless support across sales and integration cycles.

“Telecom operators are increasingly looking for improved technologies that ease implementaton and lower costs for Edge and 5G-based solutions.  ADLINK and our OCP partners are meeting this need by delivering next generation equipment needed to meet the rigorous OCP-ACCEPTED standards.” Says Jeff Sharpe, ADLINK Director of Product Strategy for Networking and Communications.  “We have been working with the OCP committee since 2012 and are very excited to see carriers deploying new equipment based on the standards. The migration to standards based equipment is allowing carriers to increase their network reliability with vendor-agnostic equipment while simultaneously lowering their costs”.    Sharpe will also be participating in a panel discussion on May 16 entitled “Converting Central Offices to Datacenters” which will address the major challenges and key benefits for this industry wide initiative.
