VMware, Intel on State of NFV, Open Standards, Innovation – Intel Chip Chat – Episode 549
In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Join Gabriele di Piazza, Vice President of Products & Solutions, Telco NFV at VMware, and John Healy, VP and General Manager Intel Datacenter Network Solutions Group, in their discussion about the current and desired end-state of the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) industry, including the role of open source initiative to drive innovation and lower barriers to deployment, the three areas of collaboration between VMware and Intel – dataplane optimization, security, and solution building – and how to bring together the disparate, yet harmonized assets to meet the unique needs of networks across different verticals. The experience Intel and VMware share in creating software-defined data centers is directly applicable to telecommunication deployments for NFV and SDN. Intel and VMware are collaborating to bring significant technology and domain expertise to support communication service providers in network transformation initiatives. The guests also discuss the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors as the next-generation platform for cloud-optimized, 5G-ready networks and highlight the performance, security and efficiency benefits to meet operator needs.
