Intel® Open Network Platform (Intel® ONP)

Accelerating SDN and NFV network transformation

The Intel® Open Network Platform (Intel® ONP) is a server reference architecture that brings together key hardware and open software. The ingredients are optimized for network functions virtualization (NFV), and software-defined networking (SDN) for Telecom, Enterprise, and Cloud markets.

Intel® ONP provides engineering guidance and ecosystem enablement through these four initiatives, to advance open solutions for network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN):

 

 

Consortia Participation                                                  Open Reference Designs
Advances open source community work                    Expands product development

 

Intel® Network Builders                                                POC and Trials Collaboration
Enables an open NFV/SDN ecosystem                       Accelerates market adoption

Intel® ONP Overview (3:11)

Intel® ONP is designed to make it easier to test and deploy SDN and NFV solutions.

Who Should Use Intel® ONP?

  • Telecom, cloud, and enterprise infrastructure operators creating proof-of-concept designs to validate performance and operational objectives.
  • Hardware and software vendors seeking an optimized, pre-validated development platform to accelerate NFV and SDN projects.

Adaptable, Intelligent Infrastructure

SDN makes a network programmable by separating the control plane from the data plane. NFV moves network functions such as firewall from dedicated network appliances to virtualized software running on standard x86 servers allowing for centralized management and dynamic provisioning.

Intel® ONP initiatives advance open solutions for network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN).
