In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Alex Quach, General Manager of Intel’s Wireline and Core Network Division, joins Chip Chat to talk about his team’s efforts to drive new levels of network performance to support advanced edge use cases and the continued evolution of 5G services.

With early 5G deployments supported by existing LTE networks, many communication service providers (CommSPs) have been focused on transformation of the radio access networks to roll out new devices and enhanced mobile broadband services. In order to deliver on 5G’s promise of ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC), CommSPs are extending user plane virtualization from the core networks to the near-edge, far-edge and on-premise edge.

A next generation central office (NGCO) moves virtualization solutions one step towards the customer from the core. CommSPs are retooling thousands of COs to support 5G user plane function, wireline access and support services, such as content delivery networks, cloud gaming and augmented reality (AR), with lots of headroom for growth.

Quach detailed work with companies like Alibaba, Cisco, Ericsson, Nokia, Rakuten, RedHat, Tencent and others to drive user plane virtualization across the near-edge, far-edge and on-premises edge and explained how FPGAs, new storage capabilities and AI building blocks complement compute and network capabilities to support a variety of virtualized network functions (VNFs) and new services. He described multi-access edge computing (MEC) as a super set of all edge computing that supports a wide variety of use case and deployments particularly in the far-edge.
