New Advantech Appliances & SKY Servers based on the
Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family

With workloads shifting between platforms that span from entry-level to extreme performance, finding the right balance of compute, offload, networking and storage to cost effectively run an application at any location in the network needs more agile solutions.

Meet two new platforms addressing next generation challenges head-on:

The FWA-6170 enables equipment and service providers to build faster, more secure networks, bringing greater cost-efficiency to applications such as network and cyber security, policy enforcement, quality-of-service, and network analytics while leaving sufficient overhead to anticipate future infrastructure changes.

The SKY-8101, available in both carrier grade and industrial versions, meets market demands for higher performance, broader scalability, and increased security at the network edge where new technologies such as Virtual Radio Access Networks (vRAN), Edge Cloud, Fog and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) are vital to enabling the next generation of digital services. Both the SKY-8101, and the SKY-8101L with high-capacity storage, also meet the needs of industrial applications where cost efficient, compact, rugged and reliable solutions are required in environments with limited space, higher ambient temperature and low noise constraints.

“Advantech continues to raise the bar in compute and I/O density in small footprints using general purpose processors based on Intel Architecture. As Amarisoft’s algorithms in software defined radio continue to advance, service providers can benefit from the latest innovation in both hardware and 3GPP standards at a fraction of the cost of proprietary platforms”.

Franck Spinelli
CEO, Amarisoft

MEC & 5G

“Digital services are driving a diversity of new opportunities especially at the network edge. The new scalable platform for networking and compute from Intel brings higher performance and greater agility for network operators to drive innovation and rapid service delivery in the next generation multi-access edge computing and 5G networks”.

Ben Shen
Director of NFV Infrastructure, Advantech

Network Security & IPsec

"As security threats intensify, appliance markets continue to experience high growth in many areas especially network security, where demand for on premise hardware solutions in the unified threat management segment continues to grow. The FWA-6170 has been designed to meet Enterprise CIO challenges of increased data traffic across many higher speed connections and provides the flexibility to meet a wide range of performance, connectivity and offload needs.”
