June 27, 2018 - Lanner has added an NEBS-compliant, NFVi-ready carrier grade hardware platform HTCA-6400, into its expanding HybridTCA network appliances product family for the telecommunication applications. The design concept of Lanner’s HybridTCA provides carrier-grade chassis with integrated multi-node compute, networking and storage.
Leveraged from the HTCA-6200, HTCA-6400 is designed with four CPU blades and four network I/O blades. Each of the CPU blades is empowered by two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3/v4 CPUs and sixteen DDR4 R-DIMM sockets.
To control and allocate load-balance, the system is built in with a Broadcom StrataXGS Trident-II BCM56854 Switch Fabric with 720Gbps. To achieve 100 GbE throughput, HTCA-6400 comes with the option of Trident-II+ BCM 56860 with 1280Gbps fabric capacity. The front-cabling dual network I/O blades are compatible with switch blades or Ethernet NI blades to offer hybrid functionality. The standard switch Ethernet blade supports four GbE LAN ports plus sixteen 10 GbE ports, while the optional Trident-II+ switch Ethernet blade supports two 100GbE and twenty 10GbE ports.
The Ethernet NI blade provides thirty-two 10GbE networking ports. The system comes with redundancy design for its switch blades and CPU blades, which offers backup operation in case downtime occurs to one of the blades. As a carrier-grade appliance, HTCA-6400 is complaint with NEBS and supports redundant, swappable cooling fans and power supply units.
