Advantech Joins Network Intelligence Alliance to Drive Innovation and Leadership for Next-generation Network Solutions

Collaboration in new industry organization brings fresh ingredients to accelerate network platform evolution and spawn innovation for OEMs deploying Network Intelligence technology.

 

 

TAIPEI, Taiwan, Jan. 31, 2012 – Advantech (TWSE: 2395.TW), a global manufacturer of telecom computing blades and multi-core processor platforms, today announced that it has become a member of the Network Intelligence Alliance (NI Alliance), an industry organization created to enhance collaboration and synergy among the Network Economy’s technology providers. Participation in the NI Alliance will help Advantech to further design and market innovative solutions for customers seeking to improve platform time-to-market and enhance scalability across multiple multi-core architectures.
In today’s Network Economy, accurate visibility and precise tracking of data crossing networks have become crucial to the availability, performance and security of applications and services. The growing complexity of IP transactions, the explosion of mobile applications, and the mainstream adoption of cloud computing surpass the capabilities of conventional tools to improve how networks operate, expand services and cope with cybersecurity. Just like Business Intelligence solutions emerged to unlock information hidden in the enterprise, Network Intelligence technology is an emerging category of technology to reveal the critical details of the data locked inside network traffic and transactions.
Advantech’s reuse of leading x86, NPU and switching technology across multiple form factors, coupled with NI Alliance members’ value-add will help OEMs to apply network intelligence across a broader range of packet processing platform architectures and price points. For Network Equipment Providers, this means better portability and application scalability across appliances, servers and integrated ATCA systems, enabling a wider portfolio of products and services from which to expand into new markets.
“The NI Alliance brings together industry leaders and innovators to foster technology teamwork, interoperability and solution development. It allows OEMs to readily integrate wider combinations of tested hardware and software components,” said Paul Stevens, Telecom Sector Marketing Director at Advantech. “In a fast-paced market this allows OEMs to test and deliver innovative solutions more rapidly and respond more effectively to emerging customer needs.”
Advantech’s flagship FWA-6500 appliance provides 12 cores of dual packet processing power and scales up to eight 10 GbE ports for deep packet inspection (DPI) applications such as policy enforcement and bandwidth management. The company’s AdvancedTCA and Packetarium platforms accelerate DPI performance using Intel® Xeons with network processors to address high-end Unified Threat Management (UTM) needs. Advantech’s broad technology choice, augmented by 6WINDGate? packet acceleration and Qosmos ixEngine probes, target the deepest levels of inspection and protection in enterprise and carrier applications without comprising network performance.
“Advantech is a valuable addition to the NI Alliance and we welcome their participation,” said Erik Larsson, Chairman of the NI Alliance. “By joining the NI Alliance, Advantech increases its commitment to customers with greater capabilities to identify, develop and support innovative, more comprehensive solutions based on Network Intelligence.”
Establishment of the NI Alliance was initiated by Qosmos, whose Network Intelligence technology components provide the crucial first step in understanding what’s passing through networks. Qosmos’ hardware and software components extract and interpret real-time traffic—translating a data stream’s 1s and 0s into their respective communications protocols, metadata and content for use by third-party applications.
Through the NI Alliance, Qosmos expands its collaborative approach to help vendors design and deliver advanced solutions with embedded Network Intelligence technology in less time and at lower cost. The NI Alliance provides a channel for dialogue and partnerships that Alliance Members otherwise may not have considered or pursued when addressing the needs of joint customers. Visibility within the vendor community through the NI Alliance affords companies opportunities to market more comprehensive solutions with greater ROI and faster time to value for customers.
