Description

Unlock SDN and NFV Transformation with
Intel® Open Network Platform Reference ArchitecturE

Intel® Open Network Platform (Intel ONP) is a reference architecture that provides engineering guidance and ecosystem enablement support to encourage widespread adoption of SDN and NFV solutions in Telco, Enterprise and Cloud. It is not a commercial product, but a pre-production reference that drives development and showcase SDN/NFV solution capabilities. Intel ONP reference architecture brings together Industry Standard High Volume Servers (SHVS) based on Intel® Architecture (IA) and a software stack composed of open source, open standard software ingredients.

One of the key objectives of Intel ONP is to align and optimize key Open Community software ingredients for architects and engineers targeting high performing SDN and NFV open source based solutions. Primary Intel ONP Software Ingredients included are: DPDK for accelerated packets processing; Open vSwitch* (OVS) including support for OVS with DPDK which enables much better performance of the data plan when using DPDK libraries; OpenDaylight* (ODL) controller; and OpenStack orchestrator.

 

Intel® Open Network Platform Release 2.1

This new release of the Intel® Open Network Platform (Intel® ONP) introduces new functionality, enhanced performance, and greater stability. Support for the recently introduced Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 is included, the 3rd dual processor server platform tested for Intel® ONP. Support for the Community Enterprise Operating System (CentOS*) is now available with improved network interoperability through integration with the latest open-source ingredients. The Intel ONP reference architecture drives SDN/NFV network transformation by addressing the commercial needs of diverse industry sectors.

Intel ONP release 2.1 is delivered in the form of a software script and a comprehensive set of supporting reports that available to download from this web page.
