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.

Live NFV Portals

One of the prime objectives of Advantech’s Remote Evaluation Service (RES) is to allow developers to test performance and functionality of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) running on OpenStack environments powered by middleware from our software partners. Various partner portals are accessible through RES and can be used by telecom operators, integrators and partners to rapidly validate VNFs across a broad range of Advantech networking platforms.

6WIND NFV Test-Drive Portal

The 6WIND NFV Portal allows developers, integrators and operators to test performance and functionality of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) running on an OpenStack environment accelerated by 6WIND Software. Users can test drive VNFs on a non-accelerated environment and evaluate the competitive advantages of 6WIND’s acceleration by leveraging 6WIND Virtual Accelerator and Turbo Appliances.

WIND RIVER NFV Test-Drive Portal

The Wind River portal on Advantech RES is focused on virtual customer premise equipment and is designed to allow communication service providers (CSPs) to remotely and securely connect to a fully functional NFVI based on Advantech’s FWA-3260 white-box appliance, for VNF onboarding using a pre-qualified set of Virtual Network Functions. The portal puts the Wind River virtual business customer premises equipment (vBCPE) reference design at the network architect’s fingertips and will help CSPs to rapidly size the configurations needed to optimally balance capex, opex and capacity strategies when planning their future virtual Enterprise CPE (vE-CPE) rollouts.

Intel Select Solutions Test-Drive Portal

Intel Select Solutions for NFVI address the complexity that CoSPs face in choosing the right infrastructure for NFV by providing a verified hardware and software stack. They enable a fast path for CoSPs to efficiently deploy NFVI and achieve reliable, more secure, and workload-optimized deterministic performance on a balanced platform. The Advantech FWA-6170 and SKY-8201 are verified Intel Select Solutions for NFVI that provide developers faster access to workload-optimized and stable platforms to accelerate development of optimized NFV Solutions. Available for benchmarking in RES, CoSPs can ultilize these platforms to conduct testing and modeling of solutions that will define next-generation services.
