NFV through Intel’s Open Network Platform for servers

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) are opening up new possibilities for service providers looking to reduce costs and deliver new revenue-generating services. In this session, you’ll learn more about the Intel Open Network Platform for servers, Intel’s reference design for NFV and SDN. This platform is based on commercially available, industry-standard Intel architecture-based servers and is geared to the evaluation, development, benchmarking, and deployment of NFV. It also supports Open vSwitch deployments used in the service chaining of multiple virtualized network functions and is the basis for validating and developing an SDN framework with OpenDaylight.
