Advantech Puts a Unique Twist on New Technology Evaluation
Test-driving cutting-edge networking gear based on the latest processors with acceleration and high performance I/O has never been easier.

Overview

Advantech's Remote Evaluation Service (RES) is designed to help you get ahead of the technology curve and rapidly evaluate performance of the latest silicon from leading manufacturers on hardware platforms from our Networks & Communications Group (NCG). You can load your software onto Advantech Carrier Grade and Edge Servers, Network Appliances and Universal CPEs for:
Early evaluation and
benchmarking
To perform
functional testing
To get an early start on development while
you wait for your first systems to be delivered.
The service puts virtual control of your own test lab at your finger-tips. You no longer incur the costs of shipping heavy freight around the world, purchasing expensive test rigs or breaking your back installing equipment in a lab which you probably wouldn't sit in anyway.

The program currently offers two levels of service:

LEVEL 1 ENTRY LEVEL
For preconfigured payloads a no-frills service with support based on best effort is available free-of-charge to pre-qualified customers. Available preconfigured payloads are described below.
LEVEL 2 PREMIUM LEVEL
A premium program establishes close interaction between your development team and Advantech service engineers in order to agree on a bespoke system configuration, software load and overall network requirements. 
Each program is accompanied by a corresponding level of service and response time.
The systems and platforms we propose are pre-integrated application ready platforms embedded in a qualified, dedicated, and secure network test environment. You can easily check out the performance gains achievable on next generation Intel CPUs and NICs or see how their software scales across multiple blades in a Packetarium XLc system. You can measure the acceleration which DPDK and Intel® QuickAssist offload can bring and test service chaining of Virtual Network Functions hosted on a range of Universal CPEs with industry leading OS and NFVI suppliers.

A full range of scalable system level solutions are available for evaluation now:
