Wireless Core Network

With the transition to software-defined networks (SDNs) and network functions virtualization (NFV), network infrastructures require solutions with the flexibility to scale across multiple deployment models while also providing exceptional performance. With a single architecture for application, control, and data plane workloads, Intel® architecture-based platforms simplify application development and decrease time to market without sacrificing performance. Ingredients like the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit, Intel® QuickAssist Technology, and HyperScan optimize throughput for SSL, IPsec, compression, and DPI workloads while also enabling maximum scalability across physical and virtual deployments.

Achieve faster time-to-market

Intel® platforms also streamline development and testing, reducing cost and time-to-market for network equipment providers and operators, and helping provide faster and better services to end users.

Easy interoperability, flexible reconfiguration

Intel platforms minimize operational costs by providing network equipment providers and operators with the flexibility to easily reconfigure network functionality and services, simplify power management, and optimize load balancing.

NEC virtualized EPC*

NEC has demonstrated leading industry support for Intel’s 4:1 workload consolidation strategy by developing an entire LTE* evolved packet core (EPC) network running on an Intel® architecture server platform.
