Next Generation Central Office

Data Center at the edge.

The Next Generation Central Office (NGCO) based on Intel® architecture provides scale, flexibility, and agility to deploy new telecommunications services while saving costs and protecting infrastructure investments.1

NGCO Architecture Ready for Prime Time

As edge compute ramps, Intel and Quanta Cloud Technology* (QCT) continue to work with different VNF partners to integrate, validate, and optimize their telecom workloads through seamless Next Generation Central Office (NGCO) collaboration. The ever growing list of partners, and their enthusiasm to participate in the NGCO ecosystem suggest great potential. We expect more solution partners to join the NGCO ecosystem and its network transformation journey. Learn more about the proposed QCT* NGCO solution here.
