Off-the-shelf components have dramatically changed networking. While custom silicon is key to high-capacity core networking, the edge of the network is set to change. Why? Because a modern CPU has silicon features that accelerate network functions including packet processing and security. The days of all-custom hardware for network appliances is behind us.
In this episode of the Packet Pushers Heavy Networking show, we dive into recent Intel silicon announcements that are impacting how networking services will be delivered in the years to come. The conversation features Intel’s Jeni Panhorst, Vice President & General Manager, Network & Edge Platforms Division talking about recent Intel announcements at Mobile World Congress and what it means for networking at the edge.
The conversation covers:
- The convergence of edge, cloud, 5G, and AI
- What Intel means by “smart edge”
- Intel’s recent vRAN announcements
- Hardware processors for edge use cases
- Intel’s efforts to support the developer community
