San Jose, CA, August 30, 2016 – ADLINK, a leading global provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and communications platforms, and Wind River today announced the establishment of joint lab facilities in Shanghai, China and San Jose, CA, US, to promote the adoption of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The Research & Development centers will feature Wind River Titanium Server software running on ADLINK’s hardware platform based on the Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture open framework. The combination of technologies will offer a platform for software manufacturers, system device suppliers and service providers to test software rapidly through preliminary platform verification and system optimization, thus accelerating the application of NFV in the communications industry.

Unique to the industry, Wind River Titanium Server is a complete, commercial NFV infrastructure (NFVI) software platform that delivers carrier grade reliability and performance for NFV applications. By integrating Titanium Server with ADLINK’s rugged hardware platforms, NFV can be achieved at the network edge or in the data center, providing users with greater opportunities to maximize the performance and capacity of their NFV implementation and reduce operating expenses. With Titanium Server as a software foundation, the industry can accelerate their NFV goals while ensuring carrier grade uptime and strict reliability mandated by telecom networks.

With its experience in carrier-class industrial computers and Ethernet product design and manufacturing for almost two decades, ADLINK released the new Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture open framework in March 2016, which employs a special, modular design to achieve Software-defined networking (SDN) and NFV along with the latest integrated hardware acceleration technology in order to speed up the processing of network data packages and video streaming. All functions have been integrated into the open computing structure, satisfying the key requirement of the cloud computing era for resource distribution on-demand.

“ADLINK is dedicated to promoting the development of the mobile telecommunications industry,” said Jim Liu, CEO of ADLINK. “By creating a new generation ecosystem of NFV-optimized, inter-operable, standard solutions with Wind River, we can help to accelerate product time-to-market for ISPs and time-to-deploy NFV infrastructure for telecommunication device manufacturers, as well as promote rapid, low-cost function upgrades in the future.”

“In order to make tangible progress towards NFV adoption, it is essential to collaborate across a wide ecosystem. Together with ADLINK, we’re providing opportunities to accelerate the testing and deployment of NFV solutions" said Charlie Ashton, senior director of business development for networking solutions at Wind River. "With Wind River Titanium Server as a software foundation delivering carrier grade virtualization for NFV infrastructure, service providers can gain new flexibility and scalability while achieving significant improvements in operational costs and energy usage."

“The NFV mode not only allows the use of powerful and inexpensive server hardware, but also lets operators and enterprises deploy or update services faster and more economically than they can now. After adopting NFV, you can easily finish large-scale, network-exclusive hardware updates across vast geographic areas within several weeks or months,” said Lingli Deng from China Mobile. “China Mobile is very glad to see that software and hardware companies like ADLINK and Wind River can establish strategic alliances that result in new network designs for future network device system structures and added flexibility in network infrastructure deployment.”

ADLINK will hold its Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture: The New ‘Decide-Based-on-Demand’ Structure of Industrial Application Servers technical seminars in Beijing, Nanjing and Shenzhen, China on August 30, September 6 and September 9, respectively, where ADLINK and Wind River will introduce technology related to Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture and Titanium Server.
