Kontron ready for next-gen Intel Xeon server processor

Upcoming Intel Xeon processor to be designed-in across three / Kontron product lines for telecom and data center applications
(PresseBox) (Eching, ) Kontron today announced during Mobile World Congress 2010 that four new upcoming products from its AdvancedTCA, Communication Rack Mount Server (CRMS), and Server Motherboard product lines will feature a new and breakthrough Intel Xeon server processor that is expected to be launched later this year. As the next evolution of the Intel Xeon 5500 45nm quadcore processors released by Intel last year, this next generation Intel Xeon processor offers many new design benefits that cover improved energy efficiency, memory and security functions. Kontron representatives are providing oneonone briefings during the show at Booth 2A28 in Hall 2.0.

The four Kontron products - one entirely new, and three that now include the next generation processor support - will provide ample choices to both telecom equipment manufacturers and network equipment providers to design both carrier grade and network servertype products, deployed across carrier and data center networks. The design of each product will facilitate the use of Virtualization for various processorintensive applications, including streaming media, interactive gaming, and high definition video, among many others.

The four Kontron products that will feature the next generation Intel Xeon processor are:

Kontron CG2100 Carrier Grade Server

Kontron is further extending its commitment to telecom customers with a new 2U carrier grade server, the Kontron CG2100, scheduled for release later in 2010. This innovative server combines performance, ruggedness, reliability, and long life in a NEBS-3 and ETSIcompliant 2U chassis. As for the Next Generation Intel Xeon processor, the Kontron CG2100 will support a dual socket approach that couples high performance with power efficiency for improved performanceperwatt over previousgeneration rackmount servers.

The Kontron CG2100 is an excellent choice for the demanding environment and limited space of telecom central offices and network data centers, and enables OEMs and TEMs to create specialized, valueadded applications including unified messaging, SoIP, call control, media and signaling gateways, and operational system support. Its ruggedness also makes it ideal for the military and medical segments, where meeting tough environmental requirements is critical.

Kontron IP Network Server NSN2U:

Kontron will also add support for the Next Generation Intel Xeon processor to its existing Kontron NSN2U IP Network Server, providing significant compute performance improvements. The Kontron NSN2U is an excellent choice for network security applications - including intrusion detection/intrusion prevention, VPN/firewall, and unified threat management solutions. It is also wellsuited for enterprise application acceleration and content caching, as well as for running Telco SoIP, including IMS, IPTV, video on demand (VoD), SIP application servers, IP-PBX, and IP-PSTN gateways.

Kontron AT8050 ATCA Processor Blade:

The Kontron AT8050 is an ATCA processor blade based on a single Intel Xeon L5518 quadcore processor with a 60W power envelope. This blade is socket compatible with the nextgeneration Intel Xeon processor, and is compliant to PICMG 3.1 Option 9, Option 2. The Kontron AT8050 features 10 + 10 Gigabit Ethernet on the Fabric Interface, plus two 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet on the Base Interface and two 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet via the Front Panel or RTM. Expansion features include one AdvancedMC midsize slot supporting PCI Express x4, and SATA /SAS interfaces. The Kontron AT8050 achieves the best price versus performance for TEMs building ATCA systems for media server (IMS), 3G, and LTE wireless system equipment.

Kontron KTC5520 Server Board:

Designed with an extensive featureset and two new Intel Xeon 5500 series 45nm quadcore processors, this costeffective Kontron KTC5520-EATX SSI EEBcompliant server board offers extreme performance, high I/O bandwidth and exceptional reliability - backed by a 7year lifecycle support program. As a dual socket server board, the Kontron KTC5520 is also compatible to support two nextgen Intel Xeon processors, making it the ideal solution for OEMs designing a multitude of applications found in the medical imaging, simulation, storage and multimedia telecom and data center markets.

The server board features a builtin ability to be fully managed remotely, using an Integrated Management Processor (IMP) that integrates VGA/2D, BMC, and KVM/VM over IP to support realtime access with full control by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM) and virtual media (VM) by a single local computer from anywhere, at any time.
