Meta brain NE3160M5 is an edge server optimized for 5G RAN and lightweight edge computing applications. The product is designed in reference to the Open Telecom IT Infrastructure (OTII) standard. Featuring strong performance, flexible network access capabilities and low energy consumption, the server is suitable for industries such as ICT convergence, 5G deployment, industrial Internet, smart retail, and smart manufacturing.

Key Features
  • Excellent performance

    Supports Intel Xeon Skylake-D processors. A single CPU supports up to 16 cores with a TDP at up to 105W.

    Supports heterogeneous computing acceleration, with up to 2 single-slot GPUs.

  • Easy O&M

    The modular design improves O&M flexibility.

    Front I/O design and isolated cold and hot air passages improve server room cooling efficiency.

  • Flexible network access

    Supports various onboard networks. The motherboard is integrated with four 10 GbE ports (SFP+) and two 1 GbE network ports (RJ45).

    Supports wireless module expansions such as 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi.

    Supports 3 clock synchronization methods with ns-level accuracy to meet the application scenarios of 5G base stations.

  • Better environmental adaptability

    Depth is only 420 mm (16.54 in.), saving deployment space and supports both rack-mounted and wall-mounted deployment.

    Supports operating environments with a temperatures ranging between -5°C and 55°C (23°F and 131°F).

    Class B EMC level, dust-proof, corrosion-resistant and seismic design, meeting telecommunications standards.
