More intelligence in the network for delivery of services to consumers and businesses will be the main benefit of the Intel products announced today for the global telecom industry.
Telecom network operator America Movil has selected Intel as a technology partner to upgrade its network in Latin America and Europe.
Intel will assist telecom network operators to quickly and cost effectively expand their infrastructure to meet the demand from the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G mobile technologies in the future.
“Building intelligence throughout the communications infrastructure and using a standards-based approach offers service providers the foundation to build agile, cloud-ready networks that allow them to expand their services capabilities,” said Sandra Rivera, vice president, Data Center Group and general manager, Network Platforms Group, Intel.
Intel is already working with telecom network vendor Cisco and telecom network operators SK Telecom (Korea) and Verizon (the United States), to accelerate the move toward more flexible and responsive networks today and to lay the foundation for 5G networks.
Intel will provide support to America Movil as it modernizes its infrastructure to accelerate the launch of new services, automate its processes and reduce its network operation costs in Latin America and Europe.
More than 50 networking, cloud storage, enterprise storage and IoT system designs using the Intel Xeon processor D-1500 product family are in development.
The new Intel Ethernet Multi-host Controller FM10000 Family combines Ethernet technology with switch resources for use in high-performance communications network applications and dense server platforms.
With up to 200 Gbps of high-bandwidth multi-host connectivity and multiple 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports, it delivers exceptional packet processing capability and significantly reduces performance bottlenecks in moving network traffic within and between servers.
The new Intel Ethernet Controller X550 family is cost-effective 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity solution that can offer a performance boost to data center servers and network appliances.
