24 Sep VP Jonathan Cartu Claims – Supermicro Launches NEBS Level 3 Certified 1U Server for 5G…
Super Micro Computer, a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, this week announced an industry-first 1U NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) Level 3 certified system with up to four NVIDIA V100 or V100S Tensor Core GPUs.
The new server system enables the latest AI, AR/VR, transcoding, gaming, and other high-compute workloads with low latency requirements in the telecom environment. The new 1U system is available with either redundant AC or DC Power Supply (1+1) options and has nine 4cm fans to provide a robust cooling system that supports the extended temperature range. Also included are 2x 2.5″ hot-swap SAS/SATA drive bays and 2x 2.5″ internal drive bays. The system provides for secure SNMP v3, IPv6, and IPMI for management.
The criticality of NEBS Level 3 cannot be overstated for the growing market conversion from 4G to 5G, along with ever more complex and demanding applications coming to the edge. This new system extends the operating temperature to 55 °C and meets the shock and vibration, flame resistance, and other stringent testing to complete the GR-1089 and GR-63 suite of tests required for full NEBS Level 3 compliance.
The server’s foundation of 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with built-in AI acceleration and Intel Optane persistent memory to utilize the NVIDIA GPUs to their fullest potential. This design allows mobile operators to upgrade their systems with higher-performance GPUs to accelerate voice and data traffic, as well as provide new edge applications and services, using servers that meet their rigorous reliability standards.
