ADLINK Presents a Powerful Edge Computing Platform for IoT-based Big Data Analytics Applications
See live smart factory demonstration featuring software from partner Numascale and ADLINK’s SETO-1000 – the world’s first and only outdoor server delivering data center performance in a compact size and fanless design – at IoT Asia 2016
ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of Application Ready Intelligent Platforms (ARiPs) and compute building blocks that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), will be showcasing its SETO-1000 Extreme Outdoor Server, the industry’s first and only fanless outdoor edge computing platform in Booth #B29 at the upcoming IoT Asia 2016 event on March 30 & 31 in Hall 1 at Singapore EXPO in Singapore. The SETO-1000 delivers data center performance in a compact form factor, close to the size of a laptop. The live demo shows a cost-effective smart factory solution from software partner Numascale that utilizes the SETO-1000 platform to implement big data analytics at the edge of the network to improve shop floor productivity.
The increase in IoT and analytics applications is generating a huge flow of data, causing network capacity issues and leading to the rise of edge computing, or “fog computing,” which provides high performance computing in close proximity to the service area, reducing backhaul costs and optimizing infrastructure efficiency. The close proximity enabled by edge computing also brings extra low latency to data delivery, optimizing the experience of Internet users.
“Reinforced by an extreme rugged design, the SETO-1000 can be easily mounted almost anywhere even in extremely harsh outdoor environments. The attributes of high performance, ultra-ruggedness and location flexibility make SETO-1000 an ideal solution for edge computing deployments,“ said Yong Luo, head of ADLINK’s Embedded Computing Product Segment. “In addition to smart factory, SETO-1000 has also been successfully used in deploying outdoor telecom infrastructure and other applications such as augmented reality visualization. We will be glad to see additional prominent IoT software service providers like Numascale explore the hardware resources provided by SETO-1000 and create more edge computing applications to accommodate the trends and requirements of IoT era.”
Running on single/dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2400 v2 series with Intel® C604 Chipset and supporting up to 96 GB of memory, the ADLINK SETO-1000 is capable of providing computing performance comparable to a data center, but is physically embodied in dimensions of just 340mm x 440mm x 44mm (L x W x H) with an aluminum chassis that offers a fanless design (conduction cooled) and IP65 water and dust ingress rating protection.
Leveraging the compelling performance, rugged design and location flexibility provided by SETO-1000, the Numascale IoT solution performs data analytics at the edge with a computing server installed at the factory and a process model downloaded from the cloud server. The solution enables businesses to implement preventive maintenance at a cost that is affordable for small- and-medium sized factories, putting IoT-based big data analytics within the reach of smaller companies with limited funding.
In this case, SETO-1000 has helped Numascale implement advanced IoT applications without the need for building up the data center infrastructure, saving a great deal on infrastructure investment and reducing backhaul usage, and its associated costs, from the Radio Access Network (RAN) to the cloud-end application server.
The SETO-1000 is another example of ADLINK’s market-leading and exclusive extreme rugged platforms. It is the world’s only outdoor telecom/network server providing Intel® Xeon®-class performance with a fanless design, capable of sustaining an extended operating temperature range from -40°C to 55°C, and reinforced with NEBS shock and vibration resistance and IP65 water and dust proof capabilities.
The thin and compact form factor of SETO-1000 also provides space economy and location flexibility; when there is no available space in the factory workshop, SETO-1000 can be installed in an outdoor corner, e.g., mounted onto an external wall or pole. Therefore, the Numascale smart factory solution is agile and can be applied to almost any factory.
