Embedded with Innovation, Workload ConsolidationThe explosion of content and services on billions of smart connected devices is driving exponential growth in network traffic, processing workloads and infrastructure costs. Mobile consumers want rich content delivered anytime/anywhere, and growing demand forces service providers to scrutinize capital expenditures (CapEx). At the same time, infrastructure energy costs drive operating expenses (OpEx) higher.Consolidating communications workloads on Intel® architecture can help you meet growing network traffic demands with the added benefits of faster, lower cost development.Running multiple applications on a single piece of equipment increases system functionality. Reducing the number of boards to build, inventory, maintain and support helps you cut operating costs.Going forward, adding processor cores lets you scale performance while meeting cost and performance targets, without impacting your code base.Traditional designs have multiple processor architecturesIn traditional designs, a single network device, such as a radio network controller or a wireless base station requires multiple processing architectures to handle unique workloads.Look under the hood and you find general-purpose processors for application and control plane processing, network processors for packet processing and an alphabet soup of dedicated chips for signal processing. Just one base station can have boards with CPUs, NPUs, DSPs, FGPAs, ASICs, and ASSPs, each requiring its own firmware and software.Intel® architecture enables 4-to-1 workload consolidationIntel’s scalable family of code-compatible Intel® Xeon® processors has the flexibility to meet top-to-bottom performance requirements of network equipment. So now you can consolidate applications and services processing, control plane processing, packet processing, and signal processing. And you can do it all on a single scalable architecture that’s adaptable to a broad range of products.Read the full Embedded with Innovation, Workload Consolidation Technology Brief.
