KFAR SAVA, Israel, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicom
Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that it has launched
its powerful new Edge Computing platform based on the
Intel® Xeon-D (D2100) processor.
Targeted for the needs of Cloud and Communication Service
Providers (CoSP), the new platform is optimized for Edge
Computing services including uCPE (Universal Customer Premises
Equipment), Cloud Edge, 5G Distributed Unit (DU), and IoT Gateways.
Intel has verified Silicom's new platform as an Intel®
Select Solution for uCPE in both 'Basic' and 'Plus'
configurations and optimized on Ubuntu as the operating system,
after rigorous benchmark testing to confirm its features,
functionality, security and performance.
"We have designed our Edge Computing Platform to be a
'hand-in-glove' fit for Cloud players and CoSPs transitioning their
networks to the virtualized paradigm," commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO. "Our
platform enables next-generation services that will aggregate
compute, storage, network and low-latency analytics based on FPGAs.
We believe that this unique combination of capabilities will make
our new Edge Computing platform the preferred choice for the
deployment of future whitebox-based services."
"As an Intel Select Solutions Partner, we look forward to
working closely with Intel in joint go-to-market efforts, and to
continue to build our Select Solutions portfolio, including the
delivery of an Intel® Select Solution for uCPE based on the newly
announced ADVA Ensemble Connector," concluded Mr. Orbach.
Intel Select Solutions are verified hardware and software stacks
that are optimized for specific software workloads across compute,
storage and network. The solutions are developed from Intel's deep
experience with independent software vendors and OEM/ODM industry
partners. To qualify a product as an Intel® Select Solution,
solution providers must replicate or exceed Intel's general
reference benchmark performance thresholds, as well as its
specialized benchmarks for security, encryption and compression
performance, characteristics that are essential for the success of
edge networking use cases.
"Intel Xeon-D processors provide the performance density
critical for the emerging customer-premise edge solutions," said
Renu Navale, senior director of Edge
Services & Industry Enabling at Intel. "Intel Select Solutions
for uCPE will accelerate deployment of these next-generation
platforms and services, and we're pleased to collaborate with
innovators like Silicom to deliver them to customers."
