Intel and its partners are rolling out a new Intel Select Solution for universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) to cater for both service providers and enterprises.

Intel Select Solutions are workload-optimized solution stacks that simplify and accelerate the process of selecting and deploying the hardware and software needed for today’s broad, complex array of workloads and applications. 

Intel Select Solution for uCPE will be based on the Intel Xeon D-2100 system-on-chip (SOC) processor, which was announced this year.

Intel Select Solutions for uCPE help to enable customers in the effort to transform fixed-function, proprietary technology to efficient and agile infrastructure delivered by an Intel architecture-based solution running multiple network services in virtualized and traditional deployment models. 

Such a uCPE deployment consolidates multiple fixed-function appliances onto a single platform, giving customers the agility to run virtualized network functions at both enterprises and at branch offices.

Typical services delivered via a uCPE solution include firewalls, routing, intrusion prevention systems, Wi-Fi and software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN). 

Intel partners are already building Intel Select Solutions for uCPE, including Advantech, Lanner, Premier, Silicom, and Supermicro, who plan to offer solutions starting in the second half of 2018. A broad set of Intel-powered and pre-optimized Intel architecture-based uCPE solutions will be offered from partners and select systems integrators globally.

With the new Intel Select Solution for uCPE, service providers can accelerate provisioning of new services, streamline management and cut operating expenses, while customers gain greater flexibility, along with an opportunity to reduce operational costs.
