SHANGHAI — ADLINK Technology, a global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), announced the opening of demo room developed in collaboration with Intel at ADLINK's Shanghai Operations Center as the kick-off event for a newly-signed collaborative technology strategy.

Combining Intel's latest development technologies with ADLINK's established design capabilities, this new era of cooperation aims to deliver advanced, cutting-edge switching, transcoding, and deep packet inspection solutions for the next iteration of the intelligent edge cloud computing platform. The demo room will exhibit smart access applications on edge computing servers, ATCA servers, and network appliances, and Edge Computing & Smart Access provide clear, direct demonstrations of the latest advances in edge computing /SDN technology.

With nearly two decades of manufacturing and design experience in industrial telecom and ethernet switching and computing manufacturing, ADLINK is now proud to announce its new cooperative framework with Intel. The demonstration and testing lab will be dedicated to combining ADLINK's extensive application design experience with Intel's latest generation of networking and communications technology, with an initial focus on the application of innovative edge computing technologies to specific industrial solutions. With the established reputation of ADLINK's reliable, rugged ATCA and CompactPCI servers for industrial telecommunications and mobile Ethernet, ADLINK aims to push forward the future of mobile telecommunications, working with Intel to develop the next generation of industrial-grade networking and telecom appliances for intelligent edge computing smart access applications.

At the same time, ADLINK is also demonstrating two new platform products in its edge computing and edge computing system infrastructure. First, there is the CSA-5100/5200, a combined SDN switch and next-generation firewall that provides Deep Packet Inspection as well as Network Functions Virtualization capabilities. Intended as part of a full systems solution, the CSA-5100/5200 may be paired with its new rugged edge computing and smart access server, the HXC-1000. The HXC-1000 is squarely aimed at providing innovative server functionality to a wide variety of industrial suppliers for applications under harsh environment in outdoor and harsh environments, including edge networking equipment for mobile access, mobile content delivery networks, cable modem termination systems, as well as military/agriculture applications.

"Moving processing and data storage away from a centralized location to the edges of the network can improve performance of online commerce sites," said Jim Liu, CEO of ADLINK Technology, "Through a collaboration with Intel, ADLINK will enable the application ready intelligent platform to enhance user experience through the last mile.

"Intel is working with ADLINK to advance the industry in transforming the network as we know it today," said Rick Dwyer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing Group and General Manager of Worldwide Embedded Sales Group. "The demonstration lab provides an excellent environment for local companies to build on Intel and ADLINK technologies to deliver SDN/NFV solutions."

With this new strategic understanding, ADLINK moves beyond providing simple hardware building blocks for today's emerging edge computing architectures, to instead developing fully-formed, application-ready intelligent platforms that integrate rugged, reliable hardware platforms with fast, intelligent, and highly efficient software applications for tomorrow's edge computing & smart access telecommunication solutions.
