Congratulations to all our Intel® Network Builders Winners’ Circle finalists
As every year, Intel® Network Builders program is thrilled to celebrate the Winners’ Circle Awards, dedicated to all our partners who have demonstrated particularly outstanding innovations and business acumen. Check out the complete list, and find more details here.
Based on how partners have met the requirements released earlier this year, Winners’ Circle partners are placed in one of three categories: Leaders’ Board, Solution Plus Partner, or Solution Partner. Each level is specially customized to highlight partners’ achievements and extend a co-marketing benefits package designed to support the amplification of their organization’s ready-to-adopt solutions. All Winners’ Circle marketing benefits will remain available for 12 months, when we will announce the next wave of industry leaders for 2022.
We have been on the network transformation journey for seven years now, working with close to 400 partners in our ecosystem. Two years ago we introduced the Winners’ Circle as a way to recognize our partners as they utilized Intel technologies and as they optimized and commercialized their solution based on Intel solutions and products. In 2021 we will continue to enable all our partners to realize these benefits with our world-class infrastructure and broad portfolio. With Intel technologies, our Intel Network Builders partners are laying the foundation to solve industry problems and create and deploy innovative services from edge to cloud in the 5G era and beyond.
Intel® Network Builders University Accelerator Program
The Accelerator program within the Intel® Network Builders University focuses on Intel® technologies that help boost performance while maintaining efficient power consumption. The first series of courses added to the program focus on the Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel® FPGA PAC) N3000, a highly customizable SmartNIC platform for multi-workload networking infrastructure and application acceleration. Courses cover features and benefits of the Intel FPGA PAC N3000, platform security, the board management controller, building an Accelerator Functional Unit and vRAN reference design and usage.

Exciting Advancements in Vector Packet Processing
FD.io community is particularly enthusiastic about recent advancement of VPP’s IPsec performance, a notoriously difficult encryption protocol to support without cratering throughput – unless you invest in behemoth, and costly, hardware. Fueled by crypto instructions included with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and Intel® QuickAssist Technology, major breakthroughs in the VPP software-based packet processing are shattering previously limited economics.
To learn more on how VPP achieves remarkable results in both performance and price-performance advancements,
