Intel® Network Builders Partners Drive Further Innovation with 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors
The newest 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors are engineered for modern network workloads, targeting low latency, high throughput, deterministic performance, and high performance per watt. As more Intel® Network Builders partners test and adopt these processors, they are setting new benchmarks for performance.
To demonstrate the performance of Metaswitch’s Perimeta SBC, the company teamed up with Intel to test the media transcoding, signaling, and passthrough capabilities of the software on a server powered by the latest 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor. Tests showed a 26% increase in media transcoding, 15% increase in signaling, and 15% increase in RTP passthrough performance.
Synamedia increases transcoding channels per node on 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers, including up to a 30% improvement for SD transcoding and up to 33% for FHD and UHD.

Introduction to a Cloud Native Approach for Packet Processing with Kubernetes CNI – The needs for packet processing in a Kubernetes environment continue to evolve, and we have seen that many Cloud Native Functions require higher performance than offered by conventional networking solutions. To achieve the performance needs of these applications while continuing to support abstraction from the physical network interfaces, an interface called AF_XDP (Address Family - Express Data Path) is described along with potential use cases. A key part of this is to support the existing Kubernetes abstractions such as CNI (Container Network Interface), and to be based off of Linux network driver interfaces. Comparisons to existing alternatives will also be addressed. – June 2
Intel SoC Products for Emerging Edge and vRAN Applications – Join Intel architects and business leaders to learn about how Intel SoC products (Intel® Xeon® D Processors & Intel Atom® Processors) help accelerate development and deployment solutions for the emerging Edge and vRAN use cases along with other applications in SD/WAN, uCPE, Security and other network infrastructure appliances. The session will focus on specific use cases that are already deployed and how these enable new revenue growing opportunities. Technical discussion will include key performance and value that Intel SoCs bring to indoor and outdoor deployments. – July 14
Intel® Network Builders University
Intel® Network Builders University announces the new Cloud Native training program, designed to advance the cloud-native approach to building and running applications which can fully leverage the benefits of the cloud computing model to develop and utilize scalable applications in modern, dynamic cloud environments. The Cloud Native program within the Intel® Network Builders University approaches key cloud-native principles of microservices, containers, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), and dynamic cloud-based management in order to educate and empower communication services providers to build their 5G network with cloud-native designs.
In this course, Dana Nehama, Director of Product Management Network Cloud and Petar Torre, Principle Engineer at Intel Corporation, discuss the cloud native requirements and testing activities that Intel has been driving with partners and the CNCF community. – Watch Now
