IneoQuest Joins Intel Network Builders Program to Develop SDN, NFV Solutions

By David Delony January 08, 2014

IneoQuest Technologies has announced that it has joined Intel’s Network Builders Program to develop software-defined network (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) technology applications for telecommunications.

“We are honored to be invited to join the Intel Network Builders program,” said IneoQuest COO Calvin Harrison. “As SDN and NFV technology is creating more business opportunities in the telecom space, we look forward to collaborating with other leaders in the Communications Infrastructure market to develop advanced SDN and NFV solutions for service providers.”

“We are happy to welcome IneoQuest as an inaugural member of our Network Builders program,” said Renu Navale, manager of the Intel Network Builders program. “By working in partnership with industry-leading companies like IneoQuest, this program will increase ecosystem alignment, ignite innovation, reduce development effort, and increase interoperability, to help members bring world-class solutions to market more quickly and cost-effectively.”

IneoQuest will help develop analytics for adaptive bitrate streaming (ABR), continuing with the work the company’s done with other networking environments. As more people are changing their video habits by using OTT video services like Netflix in addition, or even instead of, in the case of “cord cutters”, traditional cable TV services, it’s important for providers to maintain a high level of performance in order to keep their customers.

SDN and NFV are also rapidly changing the networking industry, by letting administrators define virtual networks above the level of the actual cabling. IneoQuest’s work will help providers learn how to deliver demanding applications like video streaming and videoconferencing over these new types of networks before they deploy them to actual customers. When they do, they’ll deploy fewer capital and operating expenses.

IneoQuest hopes its probing tools will also help providers when they do run into problems, letting them troubleshoot their virtual networks and keep their customers happy and not looking to a competitor.

During the upcoming SDN Precon on Jan. 28 in Miami, Fla., attendees will hear feature presentations and gain educational opportunities on everything SDN.
