SANTA CLARA, CA: The rapid proliferation of connected devices is driving exponential growth in data traffic, increasing the demands on the data center and network infrastructure for cloud and telecommunication service providers. Customers are striving to scale their network infrastructure effectively and are increasingly moving to standard Intel architecture to provide both the technology solutions and consistency required across the data center and network.

 Intel has announced Intel Xeon processor D product family-Intel Xeon processor-based system-on-chip (SoC) that combines the performance and advanced intelligence of Intel Xeon processors with the size and power savings of an SoC.

 The Intel Xeon processor D product family offers new options for addressing the growing need for low-power, high density infrastructure solutions, extending Intel technology from the edge of data centers to the network. This provides customers with enhanced intelligence and greater agility to rapidly deliver new services at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Also, with server-class reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features now available in an ultra-dense, low-power device, telecommunication service providers will be able to deliver intelligent edge networks. Products deliver up to 3.4x faster performance per node1and up to 1.7x better performance per watt2 when compared to the Intel Atom processor C2750, part of Intel's second-generation 64-bit SoC product family.

 "The growth of connected devices and demand for more digital services has created new opportunities for information and communication technology," said Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of the Data Center Group at Intel. "By bringing Intel Xeon processor performance to a low-power SoC, we're delivering the best of both worlds and enabling our customers to deliver exciting new services."
