Packet Processing

There is ever-increasing pressure on networks to perform and manage greater workloads with the uptick in cloud, mobility, and now the Internet of Things. The Packet Processing project contains an important collection of tools to accelerate development of network transformation software, as outlined by Software Defined Networking (SDN) and a complementary initiative, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

Description

This Project Provides: Network development tools binaries and open source code

The Value of the Packet Processing Project

There is ever-increasing pressure on networks to perform and manage greater workloads with the uptick in cloud, mobility, and now the Internet of Things.  The Packet Processing project contains an important collection of tools to accelerate development of network transformation software, as outlined by Software Defined Networking (SDN) and a complementary initiative, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

Who It’s For

This project is available for network equipment system builders, device manufacturers, and software vendors.

Project Specifics

The Packet Processing project currently includes the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), the DPDK Accelerated Open vSwitch (DPDK vSwitch) Openstack patch to enable the DPDK vSwitch to be utilized within an Openstack cloud, as well as drivers and patches in support of Intel® QuickAssist Integrated Acceleration. The Data Plane Performance Demonstrators are example apps that can be used and customized in development of Network Functions as well.   

About Intel Involvement

This project is lead by Intel and Wind River. These optimizations are used in servers featuring Intel® Atom™ processors, Intel® Xeon® processors, and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.
