ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and communications platforms, has joined the Open Compute Project (OCP)
and will actively participate in the organization's new Open Compute Telecom Project focused on establishing the next generation of open standards for communication architectures.
Founded in 2011, the OCP is a collaborative community geared toward reimagining the design of server, storage, networking and other data center hardware with the goal of driving scalable computing through sharing of information and technical specifications. Additional member organizations include industry leaders such as Google, Microsoft, Ericsson, AT&T, Facebook and Cisco.
“We are pleased to welcome ADLINK as an OCP Gold Level Tiered Member. ADLINK’s deep technical expertise and core competence in communications and data center platforms aligns perfectly with the evolving OCP mission and the interest of many of our newest communication service provider members,” said Amber Graner, director, Communities, OCP. “We are already seeing open collaboration efforts between ADLINK and the OCP community, and we look forward to ADLINK's contribution to the OCP ecosystem."
ADLINK is actively involved in several standards organizations, including PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG), PXI Systems Alliance (PXISA), Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies (SGeT), OpenFog Consortium, Network Intelligence (NI) Alliance and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC). In addition, ADLINK is a part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud Partner Ecosystem, a program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of solutions for NFV, and provides Wind River’s Titanium Server software as an integrated solution on ADLINK’s Open Compute Carrier-grade Edge Reference Architecture (OCCERA)
extreme outdoor server; the integrated solution targets NFV/ software defined networks (SDN), MEC and IIoT deployments.
“ADLINK is dedicated to evolving our solutions based on customer and industry requirements, and few industries have been as transformed by big data and connected systems as has Telecommunications,” said Yong Luo, General Manager of ADLINK Embedded Compute Business Unit. “We are very excited to be part of OCP, with its mission of defining the open technology required for today’s complex applications, while collaborating and submitting specifications to the OCP contribution process”.
Over the past several years, ADLINK has moved toward developing networking and communications platforms that enable the current requirements for MEC and cloud architectures for telecom operators and data centers. Just recently, the company announced its latest cloud and media open architecture, Open Compute Carrier-grade Edge Reference Architecture (OCCERA), which addresses the requirements for bandwidth- and compute-intensive applications driven by the needs of security, deep packet inspection (DPI), edge computing, virtual network functions, 5G evolution and IIoT.
You can see ADLINK’s most recent communications demonstrations in the Intel booth at the Big Communications Event, today and tomorrow at the Austin Convention Center. The demonstrations feature NFV on ADLINK’s Open Compute Carrier-grade Edge Reference Architecture (OCCERA)-based CSA-7400 network appliance
with Wind River Titanium Server and MEC on the SETO-1000
with software from partner Saguna Networks.
