Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading provider of embedded wireless infrastructure solutions and a Premier member of the Intel® Intelligent Systems Alliance, today announced the industry’s first single 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) controller solution for the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel ® DPDK). Radisys’ 40G solution enhances the Intel ® DPDK beyond its current 10G functionality, delivering the high throughput. The 40G DPDK solution enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) to significantly lower their cost-per-bit for Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and security applications. In addition, by leveraging native 40G support, TEMs can reduce overall complexity and simplify their application development, shortening development time by up to 24 months.
“Our solution provides TEMs with a scalable solution with true 40G performance, making this an ideal solution for a variety of form factors from ATCA, Rackmount Servers and Network Appliances, and even to software,” said Andrew Alleman, vice president, platform engineering, Radisys. “In addition to enhancing the functionality of the Intel DPDK, we at Radisys eagerly adopted the solution within our own wireless infrastructure platforms – including the RMS-220 network appliance – continuing our focus on simplifying our customers’ development environment, accelerating their time to market and delivering valuable cost savings.”
“Advances in Intel’s product and manufacturing technologies along with our software developments such as the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK) enable our customers to move further down the path of workload consolidation,” said Steve Price, general manager, Communications Infrastructure Division, Intel. “These enhancements along with Radisys 40 Gigabit Ethernet allow TEMs to not only bring application and control plane workloads onto Intel architecture, but also data plane packet processing workloads with the resulting CAPEX and OPEX savings.”
In addition to providing hardware innovations for the Intel DPDK solution, both Intel and Radisys customers will have access to Radisys’ team of experts for technical support and professional services. Customers implementing the Intel DPDK can leverage Radisys expertise to extend their solution’s functionality or customize it for their own environments.
