To support far edge computing across the data center landscape, Iceotope, the global leader in precision liquid cooling, announced the availability of a highly efficient and truly scalable Open RAN solution this week during Mobile World Congress 2023 in Barcelona.
Created with the most demanding workloads in mind, Ku:l Extreme is a fully integrated, standardized solution that offers greater sustainability, energy efficiency and serviceability for server generations to come. The new, efficient technology mitigates power constraints while simplifying and significantly driving down maintenance costs with extended server lifecycles, reduced failures, and Out of Band Management (OOBM) remote management.
“It’s an honor for us to partner with nVent and work with world-leading technology manufacturers, Intel and HPE. Ku:l Extreme, a class-leading, integrated solution enabling the most demanding workloads to be scalably, efficiently and sustainably operated at the extreme edge’, said Iceotope CEO David Craig.
The enterprise-grade open standards-based solution offers a hybrid environment supporting high-performance liquid and air-cooled devices in one ruggedized enclosure. The sustainable solution was demonstrated during Mobile World Congress to overwhelmingly positive reviews.
Cause for Collaboration
Ku:l Extreme is the result of close collaboration between Iceotope and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Intel and nVent to bring data-center class compute to the extreme far edge while helping customers achieve their sustainability and net-zero targets.
The product significantly reduces energy consumption and delivers a sustainable solution across distributed workloads, for both telco service providers and enterprises. Applications in these workloads require ultra-low latency and high scalability to process large volumes of data close to where the data is generated, often in remote locations.
The modular design of Ku:l Extreme is highly configurable to enable rapid scalability and will make game -changing reductions in power consumption while maintaining or enhancing data center density with:
- Iceotope’s class-leading precision liquid cooling technology
- High-performing HPE ProLiant DL110 Telco servers powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors
- nVent’s flexible and modular portfolio of racks and enclosures.
With thousands of sites in remote locations, servicing far edge devices across a telco network is costly and minimizing on-site maintenance is key. Ku:l Extreme delivers market-leading serviceability in several ways:
- It significantly lowers component failures as it doesn’t require server fans
- The dielectric fluid reduces thermal stress
- The enclosed chassis makes the units impervious to gasses, dust, and humidity.
All of this extends the server lifecycle and drives down maintenance costs. In addition, OOBM enables remote monitoring of the health of the server from a single location.
“The collaboration between Iceotope and nVent has quickly delivered innovative modular solutions for data centers, edge and now for sustainable Open Ran adaption,” said Anthony Palmer, nVent Global Business Development Manager. “We are thrilled to work alongside Iceotope, HPE and Intel, to create Ku:l Extreme, helping to support Edge computing across the telco industry. By using nVent’s flexible and modular portfolio of racks and enclosures and Iceotope’s class-leading Precision Liquid Cooling technology, our latest innovation provides a scalable solution for remote environments.”
