TMCnet Contributing Editor
Emerson Network Power (News
) today introduced a Containerized Computing Solution that’s a modular “central office
in a box” consisting of components from its business divisions.
Officials at Emerson say components of the solution include embedded computing and DC power conversion equipment, precision cooling units, power transfer switches, server racks and enclosures.
According to David Gerhart, vice president of business development and planning for Emerson, “Emerson Network Power is uniquely positioned to provide the grid-to-chip capabilities that make this kind of solution not only possible, but valuable to telecom providers racing to reach customers with increasing telecommunications demands. This Containerized Computing Solution enables rapid deployment to areas in urgent need of an effective telecommunications infrastructure-whether that need is driven by simple consumer demand for improved service or by a network crippled by some sort of unexpected event.”
Emerson officials say their company is a leader in enabling Business Critical Continuity from grid-to-chip for telecommunications networks, data centers, health care and industrial facilities.
Company officials say the Containerized Computing Solution is a modular solution using components from a single source and thus allows an easier, faster deployment and also ensures low total cost of ownership
due to reduced service demands.
It also addresses the need for rapid deployment to customers in areas without network service, comp, and provides value in emerging markets that lack existing network infrastructure. This solution also demonstrates Emerson’s ability to supply everything needed for a rapidly deployable computing solution, according to the company. This gives a definite network edge from the power inlet to the network outlet consisting of switchgear, cooling, power conversion, racking and embedded computing technology based on AdvancedTCA (News
) open standard, company officials say.
The benefits of the Containerized Computing Solution, according to the company, include: speed of deployment; deployable in remote areas and also for use during disaster recovery; easier planning and permitting when compared to other options; flexible, full build, ease of integration service; upgradability; that it’s factory pre-tested; and integration.
