Intel® Solution Blueprints
Intel® Solution Blueprints enable the ecosystem and end users alike to implement specific SDN and NFV use cases. Made up of cutting edge content including solution briefs, total cost of ownership models, case studies, implementation guides, and training guides, this library is all you need to get your solutions to market.
Network functions virtualization (NFV) is enabling the cable operator to provide more flexible services, to deliver these services more quickly, and to reduce capital expenditures and operating costs.
Virtualized Gi-LAN provides communications service providers (CommSPs) the ability to reduce cost by running new functions in software. Dynamic service chaining based on software defined networking ensures that relevant traffic runs through appropriate functions in the Gi-LAN for optimal resource utilization.
Cloud service providers (CSPs) and communications service providers (CommSPs) are using NFV orchestration to quickly deploy virtual network functions (VNFs) through the coordination of necessary resources and networks.
Security remains a top service provider priority in network transformation, providing threat protection for the underlying infrastructure while allowing critical functions to operate in a secure environment.
Increasing market pressures, such as the demand for new and enhanced services, and the search for more cost-effective solutions are driving communications service providers to adopt network functions virtualization (NFV).
Solution Reference Architecture
Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) provides communications service providers with the ability to reduce cost and drive new services by running previously hardware-dependent functions in a virtualized software model.
Virtualized IP-based Multimedia Services (vIMS) provides communications service providers with the ability to introduce new services more rapidly and to scale current and future services more seamlessly.
