Tempe, Ariz. [19 February, 2016] - Artesyn Embedded Technologies, RIFT.io and Vantrix  have collaborated to demonstrate the industry’s first NFV orchestration of accelerated video transcoding showing a greater than 20 times increase in performance per RU when compared to a standard dual-processor server. 

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (February 22nd to 25th, 2016), visitors can see RIFT.io’s RIFT.ware platform use its MANO capabilities to orchestrate the placement and automation of Vantrix video processing virtual network functions (VNFs) on Artesyn’s SharpStreamer™ 2U Platform on an OpenStack Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA)-capable cloud infrastructure. The RIFT.ware MANO NFV orchestrator can identify acceleration resources such as Artesyn’s SharpStreamer PCI Express add-in card, and direct network traffic to take advantage of those resources.

Combined with the GPU-accelerated Vantrix Media Platform software and the Artesyn accelerator hardware, this solution can help communications and video service providers improve the efficiency, performance and flexbility of their centralized or edge video delivery infrastructure while decreasing CapEx and OpEx, all leveraging an open cloud computing architecture and open source approach.

At Mobile World Congress, RIFT.io will showcase the solution in Hall 7 on Stand 7N73; while Artesyn is hosting an Open House event on Monday 22nd February, to allow prospective customers to see the demonstration at the Artesyn meeting room 2B9MR. Visitors interested in attending the Open House event or arranging a private demonstration are asked to contact Artesyn.
