Programmable Infrastructure For Edge Computing: Unleashing Scalable Innovation
Date / Time: Tuesday, April 21, 2020, 11am New York / 8am Pacific
sponsored by

The network edge must scale to support an exponential growth in bandwidth demand, in the number of connected devices and in the volume of applications demanding low-latency. To meet this demand – the edge requires a scalable, high-performance, power-and-space-efficient computing platform on which to develop, deploy and upgrade network functions. Emerging edge platforms need to satisfy the diverse and varying infrastructure needs of a multiple network constituents including cloud providers, communication service providers and enterprises.

In this webinar, Lanner, Noviflow, Fortinet, and Intel will present the Lanner HTCA 6600 platform which combines Intel's Xeon Scalable processors with the P4-programmable Barefoot Tofino switch silicon to deliver a fully-programmable platform for developing and deploying microservices-based edge computing applications providing significant OpEx savings to network operators. The webinar will include details of key edge workloads that are being enabled by this platform.
