Achieving 600 Gigabits of BNG Performance in a Standard 2U Form Factor Server
Last Updated: Jan 31, 2023
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.
