Modern networking infrastructure continues to evolve, becoming both more powerful and more complex. Although COTS hardware tends to be sufficient for many situations, choosing a networking ODM like ADLINK can provide distinct advantages in specific feature implementations as well as project scalability. For example, a large cloud provider with very specific hardware needs could join forces with an ODM to build thousands of servers according to precise needs, saving the cloud provider time and money. As a networking ODM, ADLINK can work closely with networking equipment providers (NEPs) or communication service providers (CSPs) and remove barriers often associated with platform production. Experience with coordinating worldwide distribution hubs, strong command of international supply chains, and top-tier service/support centers are all distinct strengths ADLINK leverages as it forms NEP and CSP partnerships.
