ADLINK introduces CSA-7200 and MCS-2080 network systems

July 8, 2016 – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a provider of embedded building blocks and edge computing platforms that enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), introduced the CSA-7200 Network Appliance and MCS-2080 dedicated Media Cloud Server featuring the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3/v4 product family (codename Broadwell-EP) and Intel Xeon processor E3-1500 v5 product family (codename Skylake-H).

These products are based on ADLINK’s Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture (MICA), an industrial-grade delivery system designed to support the native virtualization requirements for software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV), while integrating a wide range of the latest hardware acceleration technologies to boost the processing of network packets and video streams.

The CSA-7200 2U 19” network appliance offers up to 64x 10GbE SFP+ ports with I/O intensive architecture and flexible storage interfaces, including SATA, PCIe and M.2. The appliance is scalable with eight Network Interface Modules, offers advanced chassis management and is Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) v2.0 compliant.

The 2U 19’’ rackmount form factor is ideal for communications infrastructure deployments and can be housed in platforms ranging from single socket all the way up to eight socket racks and cater to high-bandwidth communications applications that require large amounts of cores and memory working in parallel to accomplish multiple tasks and workloads. Target applications include networking, communications, security and other data center solutions.
The MCS-2080 also comes in a 2U 19” form factor with modular compute and switch nodes scaling up to 16 systems (MCN-1500 compute node) or down to four systems (MCN-2600T compute node), with hybrid combinations supported. The MCS-2080 supports Intel® Quick Sync Video (GT4e graphics) with hardware assisted H.265/VP9 transcoding and offers dual redundant switch nodes, each providing 16x 1G internal links to compute nodes and 4x 10G uplinks. Interfaces include USB 2.0, HDMI and 8x PCIe x8 slots to meet expansion requirements. Onboard storage of 2x mSATA slots supports SSD modules up to 512GB.

The MCS-2080 is an Application-ready Intelligent Platform (ARiP) with MediaManager software providing features above those of the Intel Media Server Studio, and can be used as an end-to-end video server prototype solution to speed up product development. The MCS-2080 also supports the IPMI 2.0 with Serial over LAN (SOL) and a web-based management interface and offers adaptive fan speed and power supply monitoring. The MCS-2080 media server targets video applications such as surveillance with video analytics, video conferencing used in remote education & healthcare environments, and video transcoding for content delivery/broadcasting.
