Open Standards

Open Standards organizations foster industry-wide collaboration and innovation on standardizing technologies that propel the industry forward. Intel is a leading contributor to a number of open standard organizations working in the NFV and SDN area. Intel's involvement in these open standards organizations includes ETSI Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), ETSI Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Open Networking Foundation (ONF).

Intel Network Builders, with its active ecosystem, is the perfect place for partners and end user members to gain access to a wide range of supporting documentation for the open standards work that Intel engineers are involved in. Here you will find each of the open standards organizations with its own specific area of focus, and learn more about Intel's individual contributions to each of them.

This information will help you understand Intel's involvement in each of these organizations and how to make use of Intel's contributions as well as how this translates in to more efficient and optimized use of your infrastructure leading to an enhanced and improved end customer experience.

Open Standards Organizations

ETSI - MEC

ETSI - MEC

Mobile-Edge Computing (MEC) offers application developers and content providers cloud-computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of the mobile network.

ETSI MEC

Mobile-Edge Computing (MEC) offers application developers and content providers cloud-computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of the mobile network. This environment is characterized by ultra-low latency and high bandwidth as well as real-time access to radio network information that can be leveraged by applications.

Emerging Streaming Applications with Mobile Edge Optimizations

Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG): MPEG's "Server and Network Assisted DASH" (SAND) technology offers standardized interfaces for service providers, CDNs and operators to enhance streaming experience based on edge cloud media workloads including caching, transcoding, content/service analytics and resource/QoS allocation.

Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP): As part of their Release 14 work, 3GPP is currently evaluating the MPEG SAND (ISO/IEC 23009-5) technology to identify enhancements offered by SAND in the 3GPP environment, and recommend necessary modifications to the 3GPP specifications to enable these enhancements.
