IBASE Technology, a global leader in network appliances and embedded systems, has announced the INA8505 enterprise 1U edge server.

Powered by the Intel® Xeon® D-2700 processor and offering versatile connectivity options, this state-of-the-art appliance is specifically designed to excel in demanding 5G Open vRAN and MEC applications such as real-time data analytics, autonomous vehicles, and smart city deployments. The 1U edge server enables full control over resource allocation in the RAN and MEC, and has the potential to seamlessly integrate AI capabilities to dynamically optimize network performance in real time at the edge of the 5G network infrastructure.

The INA8505 edge server delivers unmatched performance, scalability, and efficiency with flexible storage, offering two SATA/NVMe 2.5-inch HDD/SSD slots, 2x M.2 (M-key) SATA/PCI-E storage slots, and one 16GB/32GB/64GB eMMC. With an FHFL PCI-E (x16) Gen4 (supports 75 W) and an FHFL PCI-E (x8) Gen4 (supports 75 W) configurable as PCI-E (x16) Gen4 double FHFL (supports 120 W), the INA8505 adapts effortlessly into different network environments and meet future demands for increased scalability. It boasts a rich array of I/O connectivity options, including a VGA port from BMC (Aspeed 2600, IPMI 2.0 support), two USB2.0 Type-A ports, an RJ45 console port, and four 25 GbE SFP28 ports, ensuring enhanced adaptability to various connectivity needs.

Designed with front access and a short-depth form factor, the INA8505 edge server is perfect for space-constrained environments, making it convenient to operate, maintain, and integrate into existing infrastructure. Its enhanced adaptability extends to outdoor applications, as the appliance supports extreme temperature ranges and is water-proof, dust-proof, and IP65 certified. Moreover, with GPS time synchronization, NEBS certification and DC power support, the INA8505 is well-suited for critical telecommunications and network deployments.

Key features of the INA8505 edge server include:

  1. Intel® Xeon® D-2700 processor.
  2. 4x DDR4 DIMMs, maximum 256GB RDIMM or maximum 512GB LRDIMM.
  3. 1x GbE RJ45 and 4x 25GbE SFP28 ports on board.
  4. 2x 2.5-inch SATA/NVMe hot swappable HDD/SSD.
  5. Optional for one card: 1x PCI-E (x16) Gen4 single-slot for double FHFL interfaces passive cooling, up to 120 W. For two cards: 1x PCI-E (x16) Gen4 single-slot + 1x PCI-E (x8) Gen4 FHFL interfaces passive cooling, up to 75 W each.
  6. Optional IPMI 2.0 module.
  7. GPS time synchronization.
  8. Supports SyncE and PTP IEEE 1588.
