Part II: Implementing SDN and NFV with Intel® Architecture

Part One of this three paper series detailed how Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and a complementary initiative, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), are enabling a more flexible networking architecture compared to traditional approaches that use fixed-function network elements. This paper, Part Two, overviews key hardware and software components used to implement a software-focused network in a virtualized environment.

After reading the paper, one will be able to describe the high-level hardware and software requirements for the four architectural layers, the communication protocols linking the layers, the co-existence of physical and virtual switching, and the available Intel® reference designs and tools that can help reduce development time.
