Intel today announced its new NetStructure MPCBL0050 single board computer blade server, new low voltage dual-core Xeons and Intel Carrier Grade Server TIGW1U at ITU Telecom World. The new NetStructure MPCBL0050 is Intel’s first Core micro architecture powered blade server and are equipped with dual dual-core Xeon LV processors. The NetStructure MPCBL0050 is catered towards companies that require telecommunication tasks. Telecommunication tasks include everything from call control to billing customers. Also announced at ITU Telecom World were new dual-core Intel Xeon LV 5138 and LV 5128 processors. The new Xeon LV 5138 and LV5128 processors are based on Intel’s Core-derived Woodcrest. The processors are clocked at 2 GHz and 1.86 GHz respectively. The Xeon LV processors offer lower thermal data power ratings compared to regular Xeon 5100 series processors. Intel doesn’t reveal the TDP of the Xeon LV 5138 or LV 5128 disappointingly. Nevertheless, if the higher clocked Xeon LV 5148 is used as a reference, expect the TDP to be similar to the 40 watt TDP of the Xeon LV 5148.
