Solution Brief

In order to meet the continually increasing performance requirements for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) use cases in terms of throughput and power consumption Intel Corporation and Casa Systems*, have been working jointly to address the challenge. The 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors provide several feature enhancements specifically targeted for networking workloads. Such enhancements include Intel® Ethernet Adapter enhancements for processing broadband access traffic, support for PCIe Gen4, along with improved Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) performance. All greatly aid with the high-speed data plane processing requirements associated with BNGs.

Technology Guide

Envoy is a popular L7 proxy. When Envoy is used as an edge proxy, it often must terminate lots of Transport Layer Security (TLS) connections. Envoy supports Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) for accelerating TLS handshakes. This document shows how Intel® QAT provides a significant boost for TLS connections/sec in the Envoy security load balancer.

Technology Guide

New instructions have been added to 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors that make power saving easier to achieve while in 100% polling or busy loop workloads. These User Wait instructions allow the workload core to go into a power optimized state and react very quickly when conditions are met to restart processing. This document describes the instructions and shows their use in a selection of use cases.
