Simplify the Choice of NFV Hardware with Intel® Select Solutions

Communications Service Providers (CoSPs) are adopting Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) strategies to meet the scalability and performance requirements of the network. Using standard hardware makes it easier to scale by allocating resources dynamically or adding new servers to the resource pool, but choosing the right hardware can remain a challenge. There are many options available for each aspect of the technology stack, and network workloads can be demanding in the performance they require. Intel® Select Solutions for NFV Infrastructure (NFVI) provide validated specifications for servers that meet the performance requirements of NFV. Vendors including Lenovo, Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) and Advantech offer servers that comply with the specifications and that have been tested to deliver the necessary performance.
