Business Challenge
Not so long ago, video phones seemed like sci-fi. Now they’re everywhere. At the same time, video cameras are being deployed in smart cities for mobility, security, and safety applications. For service providers who want to provide video communications, the business challenge is to reliably process as many streams as possible, at the lowest cost.

“We recommend that our customers adopt the Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8168 processor so they can process more video streams per server, and more cost-effectively deliver and expand their services.”
