Introducing Intel® Select Solutions for NFVI Forwarding Platform
Last month, Intel introduced the new Intel® Select Solutions for NFVI Forwarding Platform. These verified systems of compute, network, storage, and middleware elements can significantly accelerate the introduction of next-generation virtualized solutions into the network, reducing both time to production and TCO.
New Intel® Select Solutions from the Ecosystem
Several partners announced general availability of Intel® Select Solutions for Network in September. These solutions offer a faster and more efficient deployment path for verified, reliable infrastructure in network communications.

Path to a Cloud-Native Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) with Kubernetes
The latency and performance of containerized virtual network functions (VNFs) can be significantly improved when VNFs can better utilize the underlying infrastructure in a network functions virtualization (NFV) environment. Advancing this objective, Intel has demonstrated how an opensource, container orchestration system, called Kubernetes, can be used to ensure VNFs are able to take advantage of specialized hardware platform features, such as single root input/output virtualization (SR-IOV) and CPU pinning. This case study details this effort based on a virtual broadband network gateway (vBNG) use case that employs Kubernetes on an Intel® hardware platform to deploy high-performant VNFs that benefit from advanced infrastructure management and optimized resource allocation.
