IEI PUZZLE-IN004 is Verified as an Intel® Select Solution for uCPE on CentOS

Accelerates the deployment of uCPE and NFV

【Taipei, Taiwan, 14th, May, 2020】IEI Integration Corp. is proud to announce that their new product line PUZZLE-IN004-XD1 is recognized as a verified Intel® Select Solution for uCPE on CentOS. Just like the development of cloud applications and the complex network/service in Telco and enterprise environments, universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) is becoming more comprehensive, efficient and flexible for providers and customers to fulfill new functions on demand. Previously, the lack of a standard hardware platform design and performance verification of a system was a key challenge. It increased the burden for developers as they need to spend extra time checking platform configurations such as BIOS, firmware, NIC driver, OS kernel and abundant software code.

The Intel® Select Solutions for uCPE addresses this need by providing a foundation for the development of uCPE products with a reference design and verification of performance. It provides platform configurations and performance benchmark testing that aims to verify functions that are fundamental to uCPE appliance including DPDK L3 forwarding, Intel® Quick Assist Technology (Intel® QAT) for cryptographic acceleration, OpenSSL performance and virtual function cyclic test. It also provides a recommended hardware selection and reference design including CPU/chipset, RAM, NIC and storage. This helps customers accelerate the deployment of uCPE and other NFV applications and offers different uCPE deployment models with comprehensive cost spending.
