Introduced in April 2022, the IBM z16 multi frame has helped transform industries with real-time AI inferencing at scale and quantum-safe cryptography. IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4, launched in September 2022, features capabilities that can reduce both energy consumption and data center floor space while delivering the scale, performance and security that clients need. The new single frame and rack mount configurations expand client infrastructure choices and help bring these benefits to data center environments where space, sustainability and standardization are paramount.
"IBM remains at the forefront of innovation to help clients weather storms generated by an ever-changing market," said Ross Mauri, General Manager, IBM zSystems and LinuxONE. "We're protecting clients' investments in existing infrastructure while helping them to innovate with AI and quantum-safe technologies. These new options let companies of all sizes seamlessly co-locate IBM z16 and LinuxONE Rockhopper 4 with distributed infrastructure, bringing exciting capabilities to those environments."
Designed for today's changing IT environment to enable new use cases
Organizations in every industry are balancing an increasing number of challenges to deliver integrated digital services. According to a recent IBM Transformation Index report, among those surveyed, security, managing complex environments and regulatory compliance were cited as challenges to integrating workloads in a hybrid cloud. These challenges can be compounded by more stringent environmental regulations and continuously rising costs.
"We have seen immense value from utilizing the IBM z16 platform in a hybrid cloud environment," said Bo Gebbie, president, Evolving Solutions. "Leveraging these very secure systems for high volume transactional workloads, combined with cloud-native technologies, has enabled greater levels of agility and cost optimization for both our clients' businesses and our own."
The new IBM z16 and LinuxONE 4 offerings are built for the modern data center to help optimize flexibility and sustainability, with capabilities for partition-level power monitoring and additional environmental metrics. For example, consolidating Linux workloads on an IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper 4 instead of running them on compared x86 servers with similar conditions and location can reduce energy consumption by 75 percent and space by 67 percent.1 These new configurations are engineered to deliver the same hallmark IBM security and transaction processing at scale.
Designed and tested to the same internal qualifications as the IBM z16 high availability portfolio2, the new rack-optimized footprint is designed for use with client-owned, standard 19-inch racks and power distribution units. This new footprint opens opportunities to include systems in distributed environments with other servers, storage, SAN and switches in one rack, designed to optimize both co-location and latency for complex computing, such as training AI models.
IBM is a leading global hybrid cloud and AI, and business services provider, helping clients in more than 175 countries capitalize on insights from their data, streamline business processes, reduce costs and gain the competitive edge in their industries. Nearly 3,800 government and corporate entities in critical infrastructure areas such as financial services, telecommunications and healthcare rely on IBM's hybrid cloud platform and Red Hat OpenShift to affect their digital transformations quickly, efficiently, and securely. IBM's breakthrough innovations in AI, quantum computing, industry-specific cloud solutions and business services deliver open and flexible options to our clients. All of this is backed by IBM's legendary commitment to trust, transparency, responsibility, inclusivity, and service.

Adtran today launched its FSP 3000 Edge OLS, an open line system designed for the new generation of coherent edge access, aggregation and metro networks. It enables operators to efficiently address soaring bandwidth demand from mobile, broadband and enterprise applications by leveraging the latest coherent pluggable technology in this cost-sensitive part of the network. The FSP 3000 Edge OLS has been specifically engineered for the use of coherent transmission at the optical edge, including the recently introduced Coherent 100ZR, as well as 400ZR optics. By utilizing power-optimized wavelength broadcasting technology and a gridless architecture, the solution enables a simple and affordable optical layer with compact and flexible nodes that can transport any coherent signal and baud rate.
“At OFC, we showcased our world-first QSFP28 Coherent 100ZR, bringing robust, efficient and simple coherent technology to the edge of the network. Now we’re complementing this innovative transceiver with an OLS optimized for the cost-efficient transport of coherent technology at the optical edge. Providing maximum performance, it meets all critical demands of edge aggregation networks, including scalability, compact design, low power consumption, operational simplicity and extended temperature operation for outdoor deployment,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO at Adtran. “Our pioneering work at the network edge is creating whole new opportunities for service providers.”
The Adtran FSP 3000 Edge OLS is an open line system engineered to help operators roll out coherent optical edge networks in the most cost-effective and flexible way possible. With ZR-optimized technology for minimal insertion loss, the new OLS enables the use of ZR coherent optics at the optical edge in multiple use cases, including linear, hub-and-spoke or tree topologies. With its modular design, it empowers users to mix and match elements to create a solution that meets their exact needs. What’s more, the Adtran FSP 3000 Edge OLS facilitates the development of a compact and efficient optical layer with low-power nodes that require minimal space and can function in an extended temperature range. This enables deployment in outdoor environments, such as street cabinets.
“Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS offers a major boost to operators looking for an affordable way to tackle relentless growth in data traffic. Low-cost yet highly flexible, it can scale to transparently accommodate any line speed or baud rate. Now there’s a clear route to deploying an optical layer that leverages coherent transport technology, including 100ZR and 400ZR optics, and meets the stringent requirements of the new optical edge,” commented Henning Hinderthür, VP of product line management, Optical Networks at Adtran. “Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS harnesses advanced wavelength broadcast technology for new levels of power and cost efficiency. It’s also ready to be deployed anywhere from central offices to street furniture.”
