Hardware Acceleration and Segment Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) help CoSPs Optimize and Simplify their Networks
Communications service providers (CoSPs) are seeking ways to diﬀerentiate themselves and to enhance their customers’ experiences in the fast-evolving telecommunication (telco) market—all while keeping costs under control. Exponential traffic growth and constant pressure to add more services and subscribers can tax legacy infrastructure, forcing CoSPs to constantly optimize and simplify their networks. Many CoSPs have deployed network functions virtualization (NFV)...
Improve NFV Infrastructure performance with Segment Routing over IPv6 using the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000
Segment Routing (SR) transforms the way networking infrastructure handles packets to achieve better network performance. It’s useful at the Internet’s core and within or between data centers. SR is a simpler way to control networks that uses source routing to pre-program packet routes, to pre-schedule packet processing, and to implement traffic-engineering policies. SR can be used in Multiprotocol Label Switching...
