Easing the Path to Network Transformation

Network transformation takes many forms: open platforms, virtualized infrastructure, containers and cloud native practices—and often a mix of any of these. Regardless of choice, the path to transformation typically requires new tools and new skills. The Intel Network Builders program is designed to help ease that journey holistically. Network Transformation Experience Kits provide a library of best-practice architecture and development guidelines addressing Industry needs in automation, interfaces standardization, security, resources management and more. These 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 next-generation, open, agile and efficient networks.

Reference Architectures

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.

Acceleration

Open platforms provide the scalability and flexibility needed for almost any network usage. In some cases, this includes using standards-based acceleration technologies to deliver the required efficiency or performance. Intel offers a large range of technologies and capabilities meet the broad range of throughput and reliability of network workloads.

Automation

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.

Security

Security of any networking system is always a top priority. No network transformation journey is possible without considering and planning for the security implications. New technologies allow new hardware and virtualized or containerized security services to provide the latest protections throughout the network infrastructure.

Resource Management

The objective of automated, scalable, highly performant solutions requires efficient allocation and management of the resources across the network. Network resource management is the process of managing and allocating resources for networking processes in an efficient way serving multiple, often dynamic workload needs.
