Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel FPGA PAC) N3000 is a full-duplex 100 Gbps in-system re-programmable acceleration card for multi-workload networking application acceleration. It has the right memory mixture designed for network functions, with integrated network interface card (NIC) in a small form factor that enables high throughput, low latency, low-power/bit for custom networking pipeline. Intel is accelerating network functions virtualization (NFV) adoption by enabling ecosystem partners, such as Telecom Equipment Manufacturer (TEM), Virtual Network Function (VNF) vendors, system integrators, and Telcos to bring scalable and high-performance solutions to market.
