Interoperable carrier grade off-the-shelf platform illustrates how telecom equipment vendors can speed up system-level designs
Montreal, Canada, and Andover, Massachusetts, February 14, 2012 — Kontron and Napatech today announced a technology collaboration to demonstrate a live telecom network analysis platform based on the off-the-shelf, NEBS-compliant Kontron communication rackmount server CG2100 and Napatech NEBS-compliant adapter cards. The integrated demo platform is targeted at telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) who seek a significantly improved time to market for the design of network monitoring, management, security, and test and optimization applications. Live product demonstrations will be hosted by Napatech at booth 2G28, Hall 2.0 during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 27 – March 1, 2012.
Featured are the carrier grade Kontron communication rackmount server CG2100 with dual 6-core Intel® Xeon® processors and the Napatech NT20E-NEBS 2x10 Gbps NEBS-compliant network adapter and its deep packet capture and throughput acceleration features.
"To effectively manage, analyze, test, secure and optimize telecom IP networks, there is a greater need for real-time network intelligence and dedicated, high performance systems to effectively capture this information," said Henrik Brill Jensen, CEO, Napatech. "With integrated NEBS-compliant Kontron servers and Napatech adapters, TEMs can reliably meet the stringent needs of telecom carriers for broad deployment of network analysis systems."
"Kontron strives to continually meet the unique carrier grade infrastructure requirements of its TEM clients," said Benoit Robert, Executive Director, product management, Kontron. "Working with Napatech to pre-validate the interoperability of its adapters will provide added value to TEMs who seek an even greater competitive edge and a quicker time-to-revenue."
