Intels New Communications Platform to Enhance Network Transition

Intels New Communications Platform to Enhance Network Transition

Intel today announced widespread Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance support for its latest platform for communications infrastructure systems.

 

The scalable platform formerly referred to as “Crystal Forest” offers increased network efficiency,  the ability to increase intelligence where and when  needed in the network, and the opportunity to rapidly scale today’s product line and easily make changes for future network needs.

 

Service providers and TEMs can consolidate application, control and packet processing on multi-core Intel architecture processors.  This consolidation eliminates the cost and complexity of integrating multiple silicon platforms.

 

It enables them to increase network performance and manage exponential traffic growth over the next few years, driven by services such as social media, cloud, 4G, streaming video and mobile apps.

 

The platform includes the CPU, the Intel Communications Chipset 89xx series with QuickAssist Technology and the Intel Data Plane Development Kits.  Intel QuickAssist technology processes and accelerates specialised packet workloads – such as cryptography and compression.  The Intel ® Data Plane Development Kit is a set of software libraries and algorithms that are designed to improve the performance and throughput of packets on Intel architecture platforms.

 

The performance of the new communications platform exceeds that of the multiple

specialised ASIC processors it is designed to replace.  For example, secure Internet

transactions can be accelerated  up to 100 Gbps and the platform can deliver up to 160

million packets per second performance for Layer 3 packet forwarding, making it possible to

send thousands of high definition videos across each network node.

 

The platform launches with the support of a robust ecosystem of data plane ISVs, security ISVs and embedded board manufacturers.   Products under development include secure routers for small business, high-performance web appliances, advanced service blades that combine data and applications processing for wireless infrastructure and high-capacity routing.

 

Companies releasing Intel® Communications Platform products include: ADI Engineering,   ADLink, Advantech, Axiomtek, Dell, Emerson Network Power, Lanner, Nexcom, Portwell / Caswell , SiSoft, Wind River Systems, Win Enterprises, Zynx and 6WIND.

 

Franz Wei, Advantech Vice President R&D explains:

 

“Equipment providers are under pressure to deliver flexible, scalable and efficient solutions adaptable to a wide range of network elements which allow faster, more secure, and reliable application delivery. They’re acknowledging that Intel’s platform for communications infrastructure provides the scalability they need to build an entire product line from SMB firewalls to data center security systems or high-end routers. With Advantech’s new platforms scaling from a 1-core Intel® Celeron processor to 192 cores with Intel® Xeon® processor, customers can consolidate workloads and leverage application re-use starting from a single-core desktop appliance all the way up to off-the-shelf ATCA systems with terabit switching capacity.”

 

Franklin Flint, Director of Telecom Marketing at Dell OEM comments:

 

“Communications customers are looking to scale out their product portfolio at a faster pace, with the same budgets. Dell OEM Solutions is encouraging our customers move to Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) to broaden their customers’ product line reach. Dell OEM Solutions’ next generation communications platforms powered by Intel deliver scalable platforms that range from 1 to 32 cores – at a broad range of price and performance points. 

As new generations of Intel processors launch, TEMs and service providers will be able to scale and refresh their designs while re-using their current code.  The new communications platform will use a common application programming interface and drivers so that multiple designs can be implemented in much less time and at much lower development costs. ”

 

“This latest communications infrastructure platform allows TEM and Service providers to get ahead of increasing demand on the network. We’ve been really delighted by the response from the industry, and how quickly a broad ecosystem has come together around this revolutionary platform," commented Stephen Price, Director of Marketing at Intel.

 

“Integrating multiple workloads into a single platform reduces cost, complexity and time to market for TEMs, and makes service provider capital investment more efficient1. Using Intel Architecture brings the virtues of standardisation, constant performance improvement, ecosystem and developer support as well as backward compatibility to a market which currently relies heavily on complex and costly custom silicon.”
