NGD Systems

NGD Systems provides an Arm processor based innovative computational storage platform that allows customers to process data where it resides thereby reducing data movement and increasing energy efficiency.

Computational storage devices provide high-level programmability through a complete standard network software and protocol stack. NGD Systems productized the world's first commodity solid state drive (SSD) that can be configured to run a server-like 64-bit operating system (for example Linux) thanks to an architecture built around Cortex A-class processors allowing software developers to fully leverage existing tools and libraries and minimize the effort to create, deploy and maintain applications.

Computational Storage is addressing the challenges of data analytics in applications like AI/ML as they are used with big data, in high-performance computing, at locations like Edge, Cloud, and hyperscale datacenters.

“As we enter a new era of network virtualization reaching the network edge, we are proud to be in a central position in the ecosystem around Arm-based NFV solutions. We bring NFV to Arm through our Enea NFV Edge solutions, providing optimized and deployment-ready NFV platforms for Core and Access nodes. To enable customers to evaluate NFV on Arm, we host the largest OPNFV Pharos lab for Arm servers in the world. Our NFV platform for Arm devices has gained a lot of momentum and shows that the Arm community is capable of delivering deployment ready solutions. Enea NFV Edge provides key components, leveraging the efficiency of the Arm architecture to lower both costs and power consumption for network functions.”

Solutions

NFVI software

Enea NFV Edge is an OPNFV and OpenStack based NFV infrastructure offered to telecom operators, service providers, and equipment manufacturers. It enables virtualization of network functions in the edge and on customer premise equipment. The NFVI solutions are hardened to provide carrier-grade reliability. Integration, configuration, and validation makes them ready to be deployed on Arm-based hardware.

Enea NFV Lab

Enea NFV Lab provides a rich set of NFV-ready Arm-based hardware used for assembling infrastructure configurations to enable real-world VNF deployments, or even fully-fledged carrier-grade NFV platforms.

Within the NFV lab, Enea hosts an Arm-based Pharos community lab. It is a compliant set of test infrastructure used by the community to verify OPNFV reference platforms and tools.

VNF management agent

Enea Element On-Device-Management is a management agent with NETCONF and YANG for virtual network functions. It provides standardized northbound interfaces for configuration and monitoring.

Management and orchestration

Enea ElementCenter is a framework for model-driven network and element management systems.

Training

Enea is a Linux Foundation Authorized Training Partner. Trainings are available for many different topics, including Linux development, Real-Time and applied programming, and virtualization.

Services

Enea provides services to architect, install, configure and optimize products, and components for customer lab environments. Tailored services are offered for deployment and optimizations through the global professional services organization.
