The value of Intel technologies in Telco Cloud

The value of Intel technologies in Telco Cloud

While Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) continues to gain momentum, Communications Service Providers are already researching the ability to deploy Cloud Native Functions (CNF’s) in a cloud scale computing environment. To meet future NFV requirements Intel continues to add new CPU functionality to increase platforms performance while maintaining determinism. Besides new hardware enhancements this session will also take a brief look at further abstracting the I/O subsystem to facilitate the migration from Virtual Network Functions (VNF’s) towards Cloud Native Functions innovative solutions.

10:05 am - 10:35 am

Edge Computing for an Infrastructure partner: Enabling 5G use cases.

Edge Computing for an Infrastructure partner: Enabling 5G use cases.

5G will require processing and storage capacity to move closer to the antennas. Infrastructure providers are well-placed to enable these new micro-datacenters for the MNOs to deploy their MEC service. If these resources can be assigned at the edge when required, MNOs will more efficiently use this capacity to deliver the key 5G use cases (e.g. Entertainment, Connected Car, Emergency services, or Industry 4.0).
