Intel is providing technology that is enabling the deployment of virtualization technologies within communication service providers’ networks. The Basic Training Program provides the foundation for understanding this technology and the manner in which it is employed. This program includes overviews of Intel’s technology, architecture and vision, as well foundational training courses on network functions virtualization (NFV), software defined networking (SDN), and management and orchestration (MANO).
This course is being updated with content on the Open Network Edge Services Software (OpenNESS). OpenNESS is designed to foster open collaboration and application innovation at the network and enterprise edge. OpenNESS is an open-source reference software that Intel is making available to enable the ecosystem to create and deploy new edge applications and services. It helps simplify network complexity for developers and enables secure on-boarding of edge services. For more information please visit https://www.openness.org/.
Intel® Infrastructure Management Technologies (1 Chapters)
Intel® Infrastructure Management Technologies (Intel® IMT) enabling optimal use of IT resources for "Software Defined” environments. Intel® Server Platform include valuable features which provide a rich and growing set of data and control points that can be used for configuration, reporting, monitoring and managing workloads, and data. Intel IMT offer functions that are detectable, reportable and configurable to allow software to monitor, manage, and control the resources more efficiently.
