New Content Added to Intel® Network Builders University
July marks another release of content for the Intel® Network Builders University. The new Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Essentials Series within the Basic Training program has two new courses to enhance your skills. This training program is designed to provide conceptual yet practical examples of where various technologies are applied to a service provider's network and how the network transitions from today's physical network to tomorrow's virtualized and agile networks. Additional training modules will be added to this new series in the upcoming months.
The Intel Network Builders University online course content is growing. There are now 29 courses covering a broad spectrum of topics of varying technical difficulty. You can access the content by creating a login here, or for Intel Network Builders members can use their existing member login. We welcome your feedback and new topic ideas for future course development. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Network Transformation Is Laying the Groundwork for 5G
In this blog post, Lynn Comp, Senior Director of Industry and Sales Enabling for Intel, discusses how network transformation is a path to 5G. Smart phones have become an integral part of our lives, enabling us to keep in touch with family, friends, and co-workers all over the world. Away from home, our phones tell us how to get to places, which items to buy, what's trending on social media, and much more. Where 3G and 4G were about making data faster, 5G is about connecting billions of things to billions of people: sensors, cities, cars, appliances, jet engines, wind farms, agriculture, hospitals, factories, and people. In the next few years, 5G will be here, raising the ante on what's possible.
OpenStack* is an open source cloud operating system, and OpenDaylight* is a software defined networking (SDN) controller. Despite being designed to work together, system complexity, architectural design, and limited testing have resulted in a brittle integration. In this webinar, Dr. Malini Bhandaru, Architect, Principal Engineer, Intel, and Isaku Yamahata, Cloud Network Architect, Intel, discuss enhancements in OpenStack Mitaka and OpenDaylight Beryllium to address several of these issues.
Recent versions of Open vSwitch* (OVS) provide an accelerated data path based on the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) libraries. This acceleration benefits many users, but it is vital for meeting the high performance, high determinism requirements of NFV workloads. In this talk, Stephen Finucane, OpenStack Software Engineer for Intel, explores the work that has been done and the work that is still ongoing to bring the benefits of OVS with DPDK to OpenStack.
