IBASE Technology has announced the release of 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 & MEC applications such as real-time data analytics, autonomous vehicles, and smart city deployments.

It enables full control over resource allocation in the RAN and MEC, and has the potential to seamlessly integrate AI capabilities to dynamically optimise network performance in real time at the edge of the 5G network infrastructure.

The INA8505 delivers unmatched performance, scalability, and efficiency with flexible storage, offering two SATA/NVMe 2.5” 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 75W) and an FHFL PCI-E (x8) Gen4 (supports 75W) configurable as PCI-E (x16) Gen4 double FHFL (supports 120W), 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 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 synchronisation, NEBS certification and DC power support, the INA8505 is well-suited for critical telecommunications and network deployments.
