Wed, 31 Oct 2012 09:25:12 EST Intel Corporation, the world's largest semiconductor chip maker corporation, has launched its new next-generation communications infrastructure platform, previously code named 'Crystal Forest'. The new Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure will help Intel build upon its strong presence in the communications infrastructure market.
The new platform will allow organisations to process data across the network more efficiently and securely, while addressing specialised markets such as cloud connectivity and HD content processing.
Each minute of the day, 30 hours of video are uploaded to the Internet. In the next two years it is estimated that it would take a person five years to watch all the video crossing the Internet each second.1 As video content continues to rise in popularity it will put a huge burden on equipment manufacturers and service providers to deliver platforms that can cost-effectively manage video traffic without compromising performance and security.
"The demand for increased network performance will continue to grow as more smart devices connect to the Internet every day," said Rose Schooler, General Manager of Intel's Communications Infrastructure Division. "And with the popularity of social networking and other high-bandwidth services, such as video and photo uploads/downloads, interactive video, crowdcasting and online gaming, service providers will be challenged to efficiently provision sufficient upstream capacity and manage the spike in network traffic."
The new Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure (previously called Crystal Forest) can consolidate three communications workloads (application, control and packet processing) on a multi-core Intel architecture processor. As well as delivering superior performance and accelerated time to market for new products, equipment manufacturers can also take advantage of Intel® QuickAssist technology to accelerate specialised packet workload processing (such as cryptography, compression and deep packet inspection).
Secure Internet transactions can be accelerated up to 100Gbps on the platform using the QuickAssist technology giving service providers the ability to handle large numbers of secure transactions and without the cost of a specialised solution.
