Evolve your network with the 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors Experience Kits
As your network demands increase, technology needs to evolve and deliver new potentials. This evolution is the fuel for Network Transformation and it can take many forms: open platforms, virtualized infrastructure, containers and cloud native practices and often a mix of any of these. A baseline of proven platforms that can make this transformation happen is essential.
The introduction of the 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors will delivers incremental performance for network workloads and a depth of additional capabilities that provides best-practice architecture and development guidelines addressing industry needs in performance, automation, security, observability, interfaces standardization and more. The 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors Experience Kits offer developers, technical leads, and other audiences a variety of materials needed to enable adoption of the new technologies and service-enabling capabilities needed for services delivery from network edge to core in next-generation, open, agile and efficient networks.
Network Transformation reference architectures provide guidance to optimized configurations of hardware and software components designed to achieve efficiencies in modern network architectures. The primary focus for reference architecture development is on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) use cases. In order to keep up with and derive benefits from the latest advances, most reference architectures are based on 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable platforms and related technologies.

A critical objective of many network transformation projects is enable automation to offset the time-consuming and costly manpower requirements to manage scalable, distributed networks and to achieve more cloud-like efficiencies. While the separation of functions found in most virtualized, NFV or cloud-native environments could initially multiply the complexity of managing services, they also promise unprecedented ability to streamline and automate management and maintenance functions through the use of telemetry, closed loop processes and increasingly AI techniques.
