Intel® and Ecosystem Collaboration Accelerate Network Transformation
Intel has a growing portfolio of solutions to help communications service providers transition to a cloud-ready communications network, including the Intel® Xeon® Processor D family that brings advanced performance and intelligence to the network edge.
In addition, we're actively growing partnerships across the industry to improve the transition. Our ecosystem collaborations are diverse, including 5G efforts with Verizon and joint development of standards-based solution blueprints with Red Hat. We are committed to paving the way for a seamless transition to the cloud-ready networks.
Hear Sandra Rivera, a Vice President of the Data Center Group and General Manager of the Network Platforms Group at Intel, along with speakers from Verizon and Cisco, share perspectives on how emerging digital trends and new technologies will reshape the networks of the future in this webcast.
Rivera also recently joined Light Reading to discuss the cloudification of the network, Intel's history and work in the networking space to date, and the Intel® Network Builders Fast Track. Read the interview here.
Welcome Our New Ecosystem Partners
We welcome the new companies that have recently joined our ecosystem of more than 180 partners. We're looking forward to great collaborations with Accenture, Casa Systems, and NFWare.
Carrier Network Virtualization Launches Its First Mobile Edge Computing Focus Day
MEC Focus Day launched this year as a new addition in the Carrier Network Virtualization (CNV) conference. MEC technology experts met with the goal of seizing opportunities to learn, network, and share ideas about the growth of Mobile Edge Computing.
Mobile network operators are quickly embracing MEC technology as a way to upgrade their network capabilities and increase their service offerings, all while improving the quality of experience (QoE) for their end users. As a result, worldwide industry standardization was an important topic of conversation at MEC Focus Day.
Caroline Chan, Director of Wireless Access Strategy and Technology in the Network Platforms Group at Intel, spoke about the importance of MEC and described some of the key use cases at MEC Focus Day 2015. Intel has been at the forefront of Mobile Edge Computing and is using its innovative technology to further advance the adoption of MEC as well as continuing to pave the path to 5G.

Etisalat and Intel have signed a memorandum of understanding to help networks cope with the new era of NFV and SDN. Under the agreement, Intel will share knowledge and provide advice for competence build-up and assessment of NFV/SDN solutions to be deployed within the Etisalat network.
NetNumber TITAN* addresses growing challenges of signaling control complexity and subscriber database integration as legacy mobile networks migrate to LTE and beyond. Powered by Intel® technology, TITAN delivers unprecedented processing performance for all mobile signaling and database technologies.
This solution brief describes the implementation of an integrated platform that combines both NFV and SDN built upon a high compute and packet throughput virtualized server architecture.
This reference architecture explores integration to legacy OSS/BSS with the open source contributions of OpenVNFManager from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and community OpenStack* – all running on standard Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers.
Powered by Intel® architecture, Cobham Wireless delivers a fully virtualized IP test and measurement solution that can emulate and measure millions of unique application flows.
The Intel® Network Builders Summit in conjunction with the Carrier Network Virtualization Conference, which happened on November 30, was a great success. Thank you to all who attended the event.
Gathering more than 120 ecosystem partners into a dual-track agenda and delivering content pertinent to both executives and technical professionals looking to leverage NFV and SDN solutions into their networks, the summit was the perfect opportunity for ecosystem partners and end users to meet, learn about the newest technologies driving solution optimization, and foster new business opportunities through peer-to-peer engagements.
