Advantech's Remote Evaluation Service (RES) is designed to help you get ahead of the technology curve and rapidly evaluate performance of the latest silicon from leading manufacturers on hardware platforms from our Networks & Communications Group (NCG). You can load your software onto Advantech ATCA and eATCA Reference Platforms, High Performance Servers and Network Appliances for:
Early evaluation and benchmarking
To perform functional testing
To get an early start on development while you wait for your first systems to be delivered.
The new service puts virtual control of your own test lab at your finger-tips. You no longer incur the costs of shipping heavy freight around the world, purchasing expensive test rigs or breaking your back installing equipment in a lab which you probably wouldn't sit in anyway.
The program currently offers two levels of service:
LEVEL 1 ENTRY LEVEL
For preconfigured payloads a no-frills service with support based on best effort is available free-of-charge to pre-qualified customers.
Available preconfigured payloads are described below.
LEVEL 2 PREMIUM LEVEL
A premium program establishes close interaction between your development team and Advantech service engineers
in order to agree on a bespoke system configuration, software load and overall network requirements.
Each program is accompanied by a corresponding level of service and response time.
The systems and platforms we propose are pre-integrated application ready platforms embedded in a qualified, dedicated, and secure network test environment. You can easily check out the performance gains achievable on next generation Intel® CPUs and NICs or see how their software scales across multiple blades in an ATCA system. You can measure the acceleration which Intel® DPDK and Intel® QuickAssist offload can bring or simply get a grasp of terabit throughput on Advantech eATCA
The following system level solutions are available for evaluation now:
2-Slot, 19" wide, 3U high, AdvancedTCA Shelf fully integrated with 2 Dual Intel® Xeon® blades and rear transition modules
