ECA-4025: A Short Depth Chassis Edge Computing Appliance for Accelerated 5G Deployments

Oct 6, 2021

Lanner today announced the release of the ECA-4025, a short depth chassis edge computing appliance, powered by 8~16 cores Intel® Xeon® D-2100 series processor (codenamed Skylake-D), for 5G Open RAN, Edge Cloud, and AI edge-focused applications with extensive configuration options.

ECA-4025 is a high-performance appliance designed to leverage edge computing for accelerating 5G Edge Cloud deployment. ECA-4025 supports a PCIe slot, designed to support FPGA, GPU or Time Sync cards, making it suitable as Edge AI server for smart city applications, Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) server for 5G Edge Cloud, and Open RAN platform for Distributed Units.

Being compact in size with a short depth chassis of 438 x 300 x 44 mm, ECA-4025 can be installed in outdoor limited spaces such as pole mount cabinets and edge server rooms. Aiming to make the platform easy maintenance, the ECA-4025‘s I/O ports, power outlet, and fans are all located frontal side, including a fan system that can be accessed without opening the top cover. Its wide operating temperature range allows for durable usage in environments where temperatures range from -40 to 65°C. Its unique side airflow cooling system also promotes heat dissipation to further improve system reliability.

ECA-4025 has on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure crypto-processing to provide tamper resistance at the hardware level. Additionally, the platform is protected with BIOS-based security authentication feature, and Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) for remote management, enable WAN efficiency, chassis management, network configuration, and remote firmware update, without compromising on security.

The ECA-4025‘s other outstanding features include

  • 30cm Short Depth Chassis
  • 2x DDR4 2667 MHz REG, ECC RDIMM, Max. 64GB
  • 8x 10G SFP+, 1x RJ45 Console, 1x USB 3.0
  • 1x PCIe x16 FH/HL slot for FPGA or GPU cards
  • Wide Operating Temperature -40~65°C
  • Intel® QuickAssist Technology
  • 1x GbE RJ45 for IPMI
  • 4x Internal 2.5″ HDD/SSD drive bay, 1x M.2 NVMe 2280 M key
  • Dual 400W DC power inlet
