QCT Premier Intel Select Solutions

Network service providers are looking for ways to deliver services faster and more cost-effectively in the Telco business. To fulfill these customers’ requirements and workloads, Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) has engineered an Intel Select Solution for Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) on Ubuntu* Host OS, which is tuned to take advantage of Intel’s latest technologies. QCT’s reference architecture is verified by Intel to meet the expected performance based on Intel’s reference design for carrier-class use cases that require high reliability and telco-case capabilities. With Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) for enhancing the network performance, QCT tuned the BIOS parameters and tested the solution to ensure the performance on the QCT platform with Ubuntu* as host.
