New products featuring the Intel® Xeon® D-1700 and Xeon® D-2700 processor family

Kontron extends the current COM Express® basic type 7 product family with this new Intel Xeon D-1700 processor series, and has selected the Intel Xeon D-2700 processor series as the 1st platform to adopt the new PICMG® COM-HPC® server-type form factor, as it serves best new technology trends set by the COM-HPC® server specification. Additionally Kontron increased its telecommunications portfolio to include the new ME1310 designed to solve restricted space and power challenges by enabling complex applications closer to the network edge while continuing to simplify Open RAN deployment.

The Intel server-grade platform with up to 10 cores for the Intel Xeon D-1700 and a maximum of 20 cores for the Xeon D-2700 combined with a large memory capacity and PCIe Gen4 capability ensures outstanding performance for challenging application requirements.

The broad network connectivity with up to 100GbE provides ideal support for highest data throughput requirements in demanding network structures.

Complemented by real-time capabilities such as low latency and determinism with Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) available on selected SKUs, the platform is highly suitable for the usage in embedded industrial automation processes.

ME1310 distributed unit for service providers deploying in harsh environments needing built in switch and timing for Open vRAN

Featuring the latest Intel® Xeon® D-2700 processor, the powerful yet versatile ME1310 platform combines a long life, wide temp, small form factor mechanical footprint in a solution which complies with leading industry vRAN software offerings. Kontron’s far edge server is unique in the market in that it integrates what is generally multiple hardware entities into a very robust, wide temp (-40°C to +65°C) platform.

“We are proud to bring our ME1310 to market, and the solution collaboration between the two companies continues to be powerful. Our further partnership with 6WIND gives our combined customers a unique edge differentiation, a full featured L3 Router. Adding the 6WIND vCSR with IPSec capabilities eliminates the need for an external hardware router in deployments requiring this functionality”, states Robert Courteau, EVP, Kontron Americas.
