Wiwynn® EP100 design is optimized for communications service providers’ NFVI with flexibility, serviceability and performance. CoSPs can utilize their existing racks with flexible configuration of the 1U half-width single socket sled.
With the powerful and optimized 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Gold 6252N processor, part of the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family, EP100 enables high speed packet forwarding, which is critical to NFVI. By adopting the new NFVI specialized feature called Intel® Speed Select Technology – Base Frequency (Intel® SST-BF), EP100 boosts performance of targeted applications essential for some VNFs.
Universal CPE (uCPE) systems bring the powerful performance of Intel® Xeon® D processor-based systems to the edge of communication service provider networks for agile service provisioning. Intel Select Solutions for uCPE provide a foundation for the development of uCPE products with a solution reference design and verified performance.
The Intel Select Solutions for Media Analytics provide a head start for the development of solutions in the areas of media/entertainment and smart cities. Pre-verified hardware and software configurations eliminate the need for solution providers to select and tune those stacks, reducing costs and risk, and accelerating time to market for new services.
Edge Computing is widely recognized as a key technology, supporting innovative services for a wide ecosystem of companies, ranging from operators, infrastructure owners, technology leaders, application and content providers, innovators, startups, etc. The aim of this white paper is to provide an overview of standards, industry groups and other initiatives around edge computing, together with some Intel guidelines, to help the reader to better understand the various challenges for a real deployment of Edge Computing. The focus is to mainly address the needs of two stakeholder categories in the MEC ecosystem: infrastructure owners (e.g., operators and cloud providers) and software developers (e.g., applications / content providers, innovators and startups). In fact, both stakeholder categories are key to the success of MEC, and their engagement depends also on the way the various challenges are addressed.
