NEI's Introduces DC-Powered Servers Based on Dell PowerEdge Technology

By Marisa Torrieri, TMCnet Editor

Unlike your toaster, a telecom’s central office runs on direct current. And should the power go out, it will automatically be switched over to receive power from batteries.
That’s why NEI, a manufacturer of application platforms and deployment services for software developers, OEMs and service providers worldwide, today announced it is working with Dell (News - Alert) to manufacture and co-market a new line of DC-powered servers based on Dell’s PowerEdge R710 platform.
NEI worked with Dell OEM (News - Alert) Solutions to develop, engineer and test the new DC-powered server. The two companies will co-market the new model E-2710 to enterprise and telecom application developers and OEMs worldwide.
NEI will be Dell’s exclusive manufacturer of the E-2710 and the main provider support and deployment services.
“Dell identified a growing segment of OEMs -- including several large telecommunications equipment manufacturers -- that require high-quality server-based technology to run and manage their OEM solution,” said Rick Froehlich, general manager of Dell’s OEM Solutions Global Division in Round Rock, Texas. “We decided to leverage NEI’s expert design and integration capabilities to target this growing industry vertical and produce a highly advanced solution. NEI worked hard to develop the E-2710 and we’re excited to offer OEMs and end-users this DC-optimized version of Dell’s PowerEdge R710. The result is a purpose-built, highly efficient server made for DC-powered environments seeking to deploy green server-based solutions.”
Prior to its announcement, Dell’s focus was on a wide range of AC-based server platforms, Shortell told TMCnet. The new NEI/Dell E-2710 server features Intel’s Xeon 5500 series processor to better scale power usage to the workload and make IT environments more energy efficient.
“DC power coupled with battery backup delivers high reliability for those maximum uptime environments,” Shortell told TMCnet.
“The E-2710 is a highly available, open-standard application platform that delivers the speed, computing power and flexibility the market demands for green-compliant data center and carrier-class central office technologies,” said Rusty Cone, senior vice president of sales and marketing for NEI. “The E-2710 can host NEI’s Smart Services to deliver network-ready, lifecycle-managed applications, OS and patch management, streamline support processes, accelerate deployments and gain a real competitive advantage.”
