Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure Systems
A range of Intel® processors, paired with the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series, provide a scalable platform utilizing two- and four-core systems for single-socket designs.
Manufactured on industry-leading 22nm process technology with 3-D tri-gate transistors, these Intel® Xeon® and Intel® Core™ processors are based on the Intel® microarchitecture, code name Ivy Bridge. Paired with the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series, this platform extends the scalability of Intel® architecture into smaller footprint communications systems without sacrificing industry requirements such as workload acceleration, multicore processing, and virtualization. The platform addresses the needs of thermally constrained solutions, such as midrange security appliances, branch office routers, network access, media and communications servers, small cells, control plane processing, and storage.
By scaling the powerful Intel architecture instruction set into lower power network nodes, the platform enables software reuse, power management, and software-based load balancing. The Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK) complements the platform by improving packet processing speeds to handle increasing network traffic data rates and associated control/signaling requirements.
