Intel® ONP (Open Network Platform) is a reference architecture to encourage the wide adoptions of SDN (Software Defined Network) and NFV (Network Function Virtualization). This move by Intel clearly points out that the network industry is walking through a transition from hardware-based to a more software-focused ecosystem. With the rapid development of open-source and open-standard software solutions, owners of telecommunications, cloud computing and data centers are favoring more open technologies while saving costs on fixed equipment costs. To accelerate this transition, Intel layouts the picture of Intel ONP, which will readily integrate open software and hardware architecture to meet industrial and enterprise demands.
Practical implementations of Lanner's technology in a range of environments and applications.
Unmanned and interactive kiosks not only have revolutionized how goods and services are acquired but also have given rise to a sophisticated networked economy built upon retail diversity, convenience and cashless micropayments. These intelligent kiosks have become the new distribution channels and points of sales for many industries, including telecommunications, personal finance, photography, entertainment, food/dining and public transportation.
The rapid increase of connected devices leads to the growing complexity of network infrastructure at the edge, which demands a more flexible network appliance that not only protects the network edge by offering security measures such as VPN, intrusion protection, content filtering and data encryption, but also offers a quick, easy-to-implement solution with efficiency in size, performance and power consumption.
Nowadays, service fleet managers have put a strong emphasis on vehicle-to-center networking and communications in order to improve their productivity, cost-effectiveness and customer satisfaction. Drivers also demand a better working experience when conducting their tasks. The concerns are mostly centered at driver safety, fuel-efficiency, usage-optimizations, and asset monitoring. In other words, fleet managers wish to establish more efficient communication and job-dispatch mechanisms between service fleets and operation centers.
Due to the rise of cloud computing and IoT (Internet of Things), enterprises all over the world have become highly concerned towards cyber security threats. For small and medium enterprises (SMEs), they need an economical solution for converged networking applications in data processing, cyber security and wireless management.
