Industrial 10 GbE interconnectivity

congatec announces its new extended roadmap for bringing 10 GbE interconnectivity to the industrial fields. Developed to enable embedded system engineers to design small form factor edge nodes with a low power envelope of less than 20 watts, congatec aims to realize the industry vision of entirely enclosed, fanless infrastructure components. Application areas for these low-power x86 nodes for gateway, edge, and fog computing can be found in numerous IoT applications ranging from vision system infrastructure for public safety to real-time smart data servers in industry 4.0 applications to rugged telecom and network equipment, such as small cells, factory gateways, and storage systems.

"With our COM Express Type 7 modules based on the Intel Xeon D processor technology, we have introduced 10 GbE for applications on industrial server level. This is the first phase of bringing 10 GbE to the industrial fields, and sets the stage for smarter devices on the infrastructure and process levels, featuring low-power designs capable of executing multiple 10 GbE interfaces," says Christian Eder, Director Marketing at congatec. "To drive this significant shift forward effectively, we formed a stable roadmap of modules, designed to steadily expand 10 GbE capabilities within the broad spectrum of industrial applications."

congatecīs new platforms deliver their 10 GbE bandwidth in real-time and support virtualization technologies to maximize uptime and resilience, minimize latency, and ensure the most performance from each processing core. Together with congatec cloud API for distributed embedded edge servers, they provide the capabilities that data center managers need to remotely manage and monitor systems. These platforms also offer minimum latency for storage devices, as well as very fast access lanes to all the various sensor networks, field busses, and industrial Ethernets.
