In our exclusive video series, TelecomTV visits the labs of the world's major network operators and vendors to discuss the importance of innovation within the network, and how they partner with companies to test and optimise new products and services.
For the fourth episode of "Inside the Labs", we visited the Intel labs in Kontich, Belgium. Intel is scaling up enterprise virtualisation technologies for the more demanding requirements of telecoms networks. By developing very fast data plane speeds on standard server platforms, Intel can lower the total cost of ownership for telcos and increase usage flexibility.
Guy Daniels talks to John Woodget, Global Director of Infrastructure Solutions at Intel’s Service Provider Group, and Kontich lab manager Luc Provoost provides details of the company’s research and development work.
