Fremont, CA, January 11, 2021 – ZPE Systems, Inc., a leading provider of network infrastructure management solutions, has been recognized by Intel Corporation as a 2020-2021 Winners’ Circle Member for driving digital innovations that simplify and accelerate network transformation. This partnership furthers both companies’ commitment to bringing advancements to networking, and demonstrates an aligned vision to strengthen the capabilities offered to end users.

ZPE Systems met the Winners’ Circle recognition criteria by: demonstrating a commitment to network transformation and digitization; packaging joint solutions that are primed for go-to-market deployments; partnering with other networking ecosystem members to foster growth and success; and discovering market insights and trends. To fulfill these criteria, ZPE Systems has continued broadening its strategic alliances with partners such as Palo Alto Networks, who is also a Winners’ Circle Member. Palo Alto Networks’ applications such as Prisma Access and VM-Series virtual firewalls have been pre-validated for seamless integration with ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid solutions.

All of ZPE Systems’ devices come standard with multi-core Intel CPUs. This includes the Nodegrid Serial Console, which is the industry’s fastest serial device capable of supporting third-party applications, automation, and 1,000+ concurrent sessions. ZPE Systems also uses Intel CPUs in the Nodegrid SR family of services routers, including in the Nodegrid Services Router (NSR). The NSR is an open-infrastructure device that supports network function virtualization, Docker containers, out-of-band management, and other functions, with Intel-powered compute expansion modules that allow customers to scale their capabilities exactly to their requirements.

“When we decided to enter the hardware market, choosing Intel for our products was a no-brainer,” says ZPE Systems’ CEO and Co-founder, Arnaldo Zimmermann. “The ability to quickly run many simultaneous tasks is one of the reasons why we continue to put Intel technology in our devices. This new partnership will allow us to accelerate innovation for our hardware and software offerings.”
