Intel® Xeon® D-2100 Processor Based Modular Universal CPE: Verified Intel® Select Solution for uCPE

Silicom’s Barcelona series uCPE based on the Intel® Xeon® D-2100 Processor represents a collaboration with Intel to produce a fully verified Intel® Select Solution for uCPE.
The Barcelona series replaces traditional purpose-built CPE hardware with a virtualized modular approach, while pushing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) computing to the network edge. The ability to mix-and-match I/O and management options allows each Barcelona series uCPE installation to be customized to site-specific connectivity requirements, maximizing flexibility and reducing hardware cost.

Processor-Based Modular Universal CPE

Leveraging Silicom’s proven line of high-performance PCIe server adapters with up to 100 Gbps Ethernet connectivity and flexible, customizable, high-bandwidth FPGA accelerator/offload solutions, the Barcelona series can address any combination of I/O connectivity requirements. With up to 16 Intel Xeon D processor cores, configurable amounts of memory, NVMe SSDs, and Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) acceleration, the Barcelona series can easily handle the traffic flowing through high-performance I/O options.
