ServeTheHome.com (STH), a Web site that bills itself as “the IT professional’s guide to servers, storage, networking, and high-end workstation hardware,” recently published a hands-on review of the Supermicro SuperServer SYS-1019P-FHN2T – a 1U edge server based on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor with an integrated Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel® FPGA PAC) N3000 – which can be used to accelerate 5G and network functions virtualization (NFV) workloads for telecommunications equipment manufacturers (TEMs), virtual network functions (VNF) vendors, system integrators, and telcos.
The article, written by STH’s Editor in Chief Patrick Kennedy, is titled “Supermicro SYS-1019P-FHN2T with Intel PAC N3000 Hands-on” and includes a 12-minute embedded video featuring Kennedy, who visited the Supermicro offices in person to review the Supermicro SYS-1019P-FHN2T SuperServer with a hands-on perspective.
In discussing the Intel FPGA PAC N3000, Kennedy writes:
“The PAC N3000 was designed for systems like the Supermicro SYS-1019P-FHN2T as it is designed for 5G service provider edge deployments. Instead of this FPGA card having to be part of a larger custom solution, Intel can offer the card in a PCIe form factor, housed in the SYS-1019P-FHN2T making it flexible.”
Kennedy has been running STH since 2009. This article and the embedded video pack a lot of Kennedy’s insights regarding edge servers, their design, and their myriad uses. The article concludes with Kennedy writing:
“The global 5G mobile build-out is a huge opportunity. Companies like Supermicro and Intel have systems like the Supermicro SYS-1019P-FHN2T with the Intel FPGA PAC N3000 precisely to address the unique requirements of the 5G edge deployments.”
