Telecommunications has unique technical challenges when it comes to cloud implementation, including real-time requirements, packet latency and high availability. These requirements can be satisfied by currently available Intel® Xeon® processors, as demonstrated by a proof of concept developed by Intel and Tieto*. The platform enables a "communications cloud" designed to more efficiently use network resources and speed up functional and service deployments compared to today's cloud platforms.
The foundation for this communications cloud is a single computing architecture capable of supporting all the software workloads in a core network. Put another way, it's possible to have an entire evolved packet core (MME, S-GW, P-GW, SGSN, HSS) of an LTE network run on a single Intel® architecture processor platform.
