What is Smart Edge
Website/webpage location within the Intel Network Builders website. The website is designed to allow end customers (Communications Service Providers, Cloud Service Providers and Enterprises) a location to easily identify commercial applications (horizontal like database/storage or vertical like Smart City) that have been optimized for Smart Edge and can easily be deployed on their networks. For our ISV partners or application vendors this portal provides visibility, co-marketing, business opportunity and all of the benefits inherent in the Intel Network Builders program.
Value proposition for Participating Partners
· Visibility of the partner application on the portal targeted to Communications Service Providers
· Co-marketing benefits through the Intel Network Builders program (solution brief, microsite page, social, etc.)
· Potential matchmaking opportunities where Intel introduces the partner to end-customers or other ecosystem members (done through account managers). Preference will be given to early adopters.
· Access to Intel Network Builders virtual Lab environment for testing/enablement
