Lanner Network Appliance and Edge AI Computer Now Officially Validated as NVIDIA GPU Cloud-Ready Platforms
Lanner’s first NVIDIA NGC-ready Platform for Accelerating Deployments of Network Edge Virtualization and 5G Edge Cloud Computing
Lanner Electronics (TAIEX 6245), a global leader in SDN/NFV network appliances and rugged applied computing platforms, announces that its hyper-converged infrastructure appliance, the FX-3420, and Edge AI Appliance, LEC-2290, have been officially validated as NGC-Ready Server for Edge computing platforms. In a configuration with NVIDIA® T4 GPUs, Lanner network appliances have been tested for functionality, performance, and ease of deployment to AI frameworks and virtualized, disaggregated 5G ready network architecture.
“NGC-Ready validation of Lanner network appliances helps our customers across industries accelerate their hyper-converged AI-enabled application deployments at the edge,” said Jeans Tseng, CTO of Lanner. “In the case of telecom for instance, customers can bring Edge AI to advance an array of applications – from 5G Open RAN to edge data centers, private networks, and MEC.”
The NGC-Ready validation process included extensive testing on the FX-3420 and LEC-2290 for a wide range of applications for on-premise, cloud and edge deployments. Lanner’s validated network appliances can help customers leverage the extensive range of NVIDIA GPU-accelerated software available for real-time intelligent decision making. Customers can easily migrate workflow compute environments including both hybrid and multi-cloud implementations, run GPU-optimized software on bare metal servers or on virtualized environments, and maximize utilization of GPUs and network interoperability.
