The chip maker, which sees SDN and NFV as growth areas in the data center, is now a Platinum member of the vendor-based consortium it helped found.
Intel, one of the founding members of the OpenDaylight Project, is increasing its commitment to the software-defined networking standards body.
Intel is joining such tech vendors as IBM, Cisco Systems, Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Juniper Networks as a Platinum member of OpenDaylight, a move that increases the chip maker's financial backing of the group and includes the adding of an Intel official on the board of directors.
Other Platinum members include Brocade, Citrix Systems, Ericsson and Red Hat.
"Intel has been actively engaged in working with partners on a broad spectrum of technologies critical to the successful deployment of SDN and NFV and will imbue a new vibrancy in the OpenDaylight community," project Executive Director Neela Jacques said in a statement.
