As part of this partnership, Acrosser and ADVA jointly performed live demonstrations of the solution to Taiwan government and military

Taipei City, Taiwan, R.O.C. – June 26th, 2018 – With the rise of the digital lifestyle – the rapid evolution toward all electronic communication and commerce – we are seeing a comparable rise of security threats that take advantage of the ubiquitous connectivity being offered. These security threats are not contained to individuals but rather these threats also exist for small businesses, large enterprises, and even government entities. The threats posed by these security breaches include data loss, financial losses and compromised secrets, which may have far-reaching impacts from business competitiveness to national security.

One example of the importance of cybersecurity is the recent actions of the government of Taiwan. In June of 2017, President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan instituted the Information Communication Electronic Force Command (ICEF) and declared that “cybersecurity is national security.” Today, the primary cybersecurity threat to Taiwan is from Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), which can originate from a multitude of sources including state actors, in order to conduct cyber espionage on Taiwanese government agencies and critical corporate infrastructure targets. In a recent cybersecurity survey, Taiwan ranked second in Asia in terms of the quantity of unique APT malicious software attacks.

In response to the call for action from the Taiwan government, acrosser Technology and ADVA have teamed up with other local vendors to provide a virtualized security solution based on Acrosser’s industry-leading network appliances and ADVA’s industry-leading NFV-based secure access solutions. As part of this solution, Acrosser Technology and ADVA have verified interoperability between the Acrosser ANR-C236N1 networking appliance and ADVA’s Ensemble Connector network operating system. Acrosser has also joined the ADVA Ensemble Harmony ecosystem as a hardware partner (please see  https://www.advaoptical.com/en/about-us/partners/ensemble-harmony-ecosystem for more information on ADVA’s Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem).

A key benefit of the virtualized Network security solution is that by leveraging a universal CPE (uCPE) deployment model, users have the ability to apply security and encryption solutions in a modular, cloud-native fashion, which supports multiple deployment models including point-to-point, hub and spoke, as well as secure hybrid cloud access. With ADVA’s secure access solutions, users can dynamically enable encryption at layers 2, 3 or 4 depending on requirements of the application. ADVA’s solution provides an efficient encryption solution that minimizes the required processing and network overhead.

As part of this partnership, Acrosser and ADVA jointly performed live demonstrations of the solution to Taiwan government and military officials in an event held in Hsinchu, Taiwan in November of 2017. The demonstration was well received by the government and military members in attendance. Acrosser is convinced that its high-quality networking appliance combined with ADVA’s industry-leading network virtualization software offers a unique NFV-based information security solution to support the information security requirements defined by the Taiwan government.

In addition to the application of information security, the NFV based solution is also possible to perform SD-WAN, CCTV surveillance, WAN acceleration, WAN optimization… vary virtual network functions in this agile & scalable platform.

Building, maintaining, and evolving proprietary network systems for applications

Industrial computer, Panel PC, networking appliance

In recent years, building, maintaining, and evolving proprietary network systems for telecom-grade applications that are highly available and “always on” have become increasingly prohibitive from the perspective of cost, risk management, time to revenue, and so on. The custom-built approach becomes even less cost effective as Communications Service Providers (CSPs) move toward offering cloud-based services, where they have to compete with non-traditional providers that offer such services on networks built using Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) building blocks.

A change in market dynamics is causing a fundamental paradigm shift in industry’s thinking: Instead of continuing to invest precious Research and Development (R&D) resources and dollars to build expensive, special-purpose proprietary systems with the hope that they will never fail, industry leaders are now assuming that there will be hardware and software failures and thus designing systems and applications that continue to provide end-user service in the presence of such failures. 

State-of-the-art software and related standards have made significant advances in recent years to support sophisticated schemes and quick implementation of highly available applications and services that can run on relatively inexpensive COTS hardware systems. Some significant industry standardization efforts are:

  • PCI Industrial computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG), an industry consortium that creates and promotes COTS hardware standards that can be used for a variety of network applications
  • The Carrier Grade Linux effort of the Linux Foundation that has helped create a version of Linux suitable for telecom gear
  • The Service Availability Forum (SAF), whose interface specifications have long been used to develop COTS middleware that ensures uninterrupted service availability of network applications. Multiple implementations of these specifications exist, including an open source version that is available from the OpenSAF

Can your gaming platform last long?

Industrial computer, Panel PC, networking appliance
Industrial computer, Panel PC, networking appliance

The first mezzanine standard to go through the VITA/ANSI process was the IndustryPack. Developed by gaming platform Computers, it was chosen by the Motorola Computer Group as the expansion mezzanine for its MVME162 SBC. The move to make IndustryPacks a standard was joined by Acromag and the VITA 4 IP Module effort was launched. Since then, no fewer than eight mezzanine standards have gone through the VITA/ANSI process to become accredited gaming platform.

Gaming platform are an important design element to many board form factors. They grew out of a necessity to gain more board real estate or to incorporate modular flexibility to the original form factor. In the early days, few, if any, standards for mezzanines existed. However, over time, standards emerged to make it easier to incorporate mezzanines into designs

Migrating legacy applications to multicore: Not as scary as it sounds

Industrial computer, Panel PC, networking appliance

Multicore processors bring significant performance and power usage benefits to embedded systems, but they also add the complexity of multiprocessing to the legacy migration workload. Nonetheless, development teams can successfully manage their transition to multicore by following some straightforward techniques.

Port to a portable standard

Often, migrating to multicore involves more than moving to a new processor. In many cases, developers must first port the legacy code to a new programming language, compiler, or OS. Using an open standard such as POSIX is highly recommended, in light of its support of many general-purpose and real-time operating systems. Doing so will help ensure that large portions of the application, including its interface with the OS, are portable. Just as important, the POSIX standard has a proven history in multiprocessing systems, and a multicore processor is simply a multiprocessing System-on-Chip (SoC).

Divide and conquer

The OSs that support Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) are the best option for homogenous multicore processors. SMP leaves the complex details of allocating CPU resources to the OS, rather than to the application. From the application’s point of view, the interface to the OS remains the same, regardless of the number of cores, from 1 to N. Consequently, the application can scale easily as more cores are added.

A multicore system running in SMP mode provides true parallelism, but some legacy applications were never designed for parallel execution. Often, large portions of the code do not use threads, which would allow different parts of the application to run in parallel or use threads only to isolate blocking system calls such as file or network I/O.

Another typical pitfall occurs when code uses a priority scheme to control access to shared memory. For instance, in a uniprocessor embedded system, the softwaredeveloper can often assume that a high-priority thread and a low-priority thread will not access the memory simultaneously, since the high-priority thread will always preempt the low-priority thread. Thus, many programs fail to use a mutual exclusion lock (mutex) to properly synchronize access to the memory. In an SMP multicore system, however, both of these threads can run in parallel and, as a result, access memory simultaneously with unpredictable results. Other insidious problems might exist due to synchronization errors that work perfectly on a single processor system but surface only in multiprocessorexecution.

To solve such problems, developers can divide and conquer: isolate the problem code on a single core of the multicore chip until the code can be fixed. To do this, developers can use Bound Multiprocessing (BMP), an extension to SMP that allows selected processes to run on only a specified core or CPU. In effect, BMP provides a single-core, nonparallel execution environment for legacy code while allowing other code to leverage the full parallelism of SMP. The development team can subsequently remove the CPU binding once they have modified the legacy code to behave properly in its new parallel environment.

Leverage the tools

Development teams must also use the right tools. In particular, they need visualization tools that help them pinpoint areas where code is misbehaving in a parallel environment. Mostly, this effort involves the detection and correction of the synchronization bugs mentioned earlier.

Once an application is operating properly, it may still fail to take advantage of all of the multicore chip’s CPU capacity. Visualization tools can help here, too, by allowing developers to reduce contention for shared resources (hot spots), eliminate excessive thread migration or communication between cores, and find opportunities for parallelizing code. As the number of cores increases in multicore platforms, visualization tools will be the key to successfully leveraging the performance benefits that multicore offers.

To provide such analysis, multicore visualization tools must reach beyond the scope of conventional debug tools. They must, for example, track threads as they migrate from one core to another and diagnose messages flowing between cores. They must also offer flexible control over which events are recorded and when, so that developers can focus on areas of concern.

Making the transition

“Multicore” does not need to be a bad word nor add another roadblock to legacy migration. Adopting portable programming standards such as POSIX, using OSs designed for multicore platforms, isolating legacy code to run on a single core, and using visualization tools all make the transition less daunting.

Simplifying the development of M2M devices

With advances in wireless technologies, defining a strategy for building wireless M2M-enabled devices is not the dauntingly complex task it was once thought to be. Instead of devoting precious R&D resources to the integration of fragmented, ad hoc technologies, today’s developers can take advantage of increasingly sophisticated Embedded Application Frameworks (Linux, Android, and others), some of which are highly optimized for M2M application development.

Industrial computer, Panel PC, networking appliance
Industrial computer, Panel PC, networking appliance

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, or the ability to connect and manage remote devices over the air, offers enormous potential. With the ability to centrally control remote industrial equipment, trackvehicle fleets, manage electric vehicle charging stations, expand the capabilities of consumer devices, and much more, M2M has profound implications for virtually every industry.

Given the novelty of M2M technology, however, developing connected devices has traditionally been an expensive and time-consuming process, largely due to the fact that system designers had to build the entire M2M architecture from scratch. Today, designers have a powerful new option in their M2M toolkit: Embedded Application Frameworks (EAFs). By deploying connected services on mature, prepackaged Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOSs) and libraries embedded directly into the communications module, M2M designers can substantially reduce the time and costs involved in developing new M2M hardware and focus their efforts on creating innovative connected applications.
