Accelerated Firewall Software on DPDK-ready x86 Hardware Platforms

high performance software x86 packet processing

Virtualization has massively evolved cloud computing and computer networking, with VNF’s now available and sufficient for many network functions previously performed through dedicated hardware. Yet even today, achieving the near real-time performance expected of networking hardware is a still challenge for virtualized network functions typically running on open compute x86-based network hardware. Firewalls and intrusion …

Lanner Ready to Offer LTE Certified, FirstNet-Ready Wireless Gateways

FirstNet Next-gen emergency communications network. hardware platforms for critical communications and services.

The evolution of emergency services is now spearheaded by this year’s deployment of a nation-wide public-safety dedicated network known as FirstNet. This critical network reserves 20Mhz out of the valuable 700 Mhz frequency range due to the obstacle penetrating power this frequency affords. FirstNet was developed to provide mission critical communications and emergency services the …

Why you can’t ignore NBAD in your Cyber Security Strategy

NBAD Systems

We all agree that the tools and techniques of malicious online hackers have evolved and advanced alongside the technologies that enable them, making it essential that network administrators ensure their networks are prepared for any eventuality. This is where Network Behavior Anomaly Detection (NBAD) systems come into the picture. In this post, we will review …

Xeon D ready for growing demands at the network edge

Xeon-D small size

Network computing infrastructure has been expanding for decades, and the network edge is no exception. When it comes to the expanding network edge, density is key; that’s why Intel’s Xeon D SoC processors have been steadily gaining favor. Servers, hot storage(instant access data- ie profile images) and network appliances(firewalls, access points) are being given more …

Virtual CPE, the first step in service providers’ NFV promise – vendor agnostic networks

versa centralized vCPE

One major starting point for CSPs and ISP’s NFV solutions is the deployment of virtual CPE (consumer premise equipment), specifically the business oriented variation vE-CPE – Virtual enterprise CPE. The immediate benefits in reduced CapEx and flexibility make growing enterprise networks one of the first to receive NFV solutions in the form of vCPE from …

Evolve and Adapt: The Network Equipment Industry In The SDN Era

asic

It’s becoming harder for traditional network equipment vendors to compete with the freedom, low CAPEX and sheer flexibility that software-defined networks bring to the table. Proprietary hardware-based solutions from vendors are continuously losing out to open source software solutions deployed on top of much cheaper, open hardware like x86 network rackmount appliances. Linux, the largest …
