Implementing Edge Data Center for Communications Service Providers

IoT and 5G present huge opportunities for Communications Service Providers (CoSPs) but also great challenges. Traditional vertical, closed and fixed function network infrastructures no longer provide sufficient agility and flexibility to support emerging IoT and 5G use cases.

China Telecom Guangzhou Research Institute is working to implement multiple Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-based core functionalities into edge nodes and use a series of edge data centers in the deployment of Next Generation Central Offices (NGCOs) to verify its ability to support emerging 5G and IoT workloads, as well as traditional services. They conducted an edge data center virtualized Content Distribution Network (vCDN) Proof of Concept (PoC) using an Intel® Select Solution for NFVi and Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator (Intel® VCA).

Download this case study to learn how Intel Select Solution for NFVi’s advanced motherboard design helps the system recognize network, storage, and other external devices and can improve the performance of these devices.
