Las Vegas, Sept 26th 2023 — Lanner Electronics, a global leader in network appliance design and manufacturing, proudly announces the successful integration of the SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud) network operating system on the Lanner’s edge server HTCA-6600. This exceptional development leverages the immense power of the 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor and Intel Tofino P4 programmable Switch ASICS to deliver an unmatched networking performance for the most innovative 5G edge cloud applications, such as security, multi-access edge computing and SRv6 Segment routing.
SONiC, or Software for Open Networking in the Cloud, is a Linux-based open-source network operating system. It brings together software networking components like switches and ASICs from various vendors, offering the flexibility to build and manage scalable networks while tapping into a robust ecosystem. By extending support for SONiC onto HTCA-6600 platform, Lanner enables solution providers to benefit from enhanced network automation, service agility, and operational efficiency.
Lanner’s HTCA-6600 is a 6U rackmount carrier-grade edge server that aggregates up to twelve 4th Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and two high-speed P4-programmable Intel Tofino switching ASICs, supporting redundant 3.2TB Switching Capability. The integration of protocol-independent switching capability by Tofino™ and high-performance Xeon processor will unleash the true potential of network function virtualization in edge cloud infrastructure.
"We are excited to bring together the power of SONiC, Intel Tofino, and the 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors onto the Lanner MEC Server HTCA-6600," said Jeans Tseng, CTO at Lanner Electronics. "This integration represents a significant leap in networking capabilities, providing cloud-service providers a modular and containerized design with scalability through which they can swiftly implement functional updates, foster accelerated innovation, and achieve cost reductions"
