Intel Chip Chat – Network Insights audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Year-over-year growth in demands on network capacity continue to outpace the OpEx and CapEx capacities of communication service providers. While virtualization of the network addresses this growing business problem, the associated disaggregated model brings with it a new set of technical and operational challenges.
In this archive of a livecast interview from the Intel Network Builders Summit in conjunction with SDN & NFV World Congress in The Hague, Netherlands, tune in to find out what brings World Wide Technology (WWT) and Advantech together at SDN NFV World Congress, and the challenges facing CommSPs in their network transformation – in particular the User Plane functions.
Obinna (Obi) Egonu is Practice Lead, Network Virtualization Systems at World Wide Technology. Paul Stevens is the Marketing Director for the Cloud-IoT/Network & Communications Group at Advantech.
Obi and Paul explain how network function virtualization (NFV) address the gaps and how the Intel Network Builders ecosystem helps CommSPs accelerate the industry transition. Learn how the Advantech SKY-8101D server, verified Intel Select Solution for NFVI Forwarding Platform, delivers scalability while reducing complexity for communication service providers. Obi shares how WWT helps mitigate the challenges faced by service providers in their network transformation journey by helping customers discover, evaluate, architect and implement advanced technology lab testing in their Advanced Technology Center and deploy solutions rapidly through global integration centers.

The Intel Select Solutions for NFVI Forwarding Platform are based on a workload-optimized reference architecture that is purpose-built for high throughput and to provide a single coherent infrastructure for NFV that will enable the 5G rollout over the next several years, by means of network transformation at the access, next-gen central office (NGCO) and core. With pre-validated, pre-optimized solution stacks from a choice of OEMs, the solution can dramatically accelerate deployment and time to new services, while reducing implementation risk for CommSPs.
