Emulex to support HP DPDK to accelerate NFV deployment

ajeter on ‎06-11-2014 02:47 PM

Today at HP Discover, Emulex, a provider of network connectivity, monitoring and management, announced its planned support of the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) for HP servers integrated with HP Virtual Connect Flex-10.  Specifically, they announced new packet processing enhancements and enhanced programmability to enable telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and telecom operators to accelerate the deployment Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solutions.

 

By basing designs on open x86 server designs rather than building specialty appliances, telecom operations can speed up development times, provide greater agility and deliver exceptional capital and operational expenditure (CAPEX/OPEX) reductions. Industry enhancements to the underlying technology, including virtualized hardware, software-defined networking (SDN), and faster fabrics, such as 10/40GbE, makes NFV suitable for use with industry standard hardware.

 

“NFV delivers cost efficiencies, time-to-market improvements and innovation to the telecommunication industry infrastructure and applications,” said Claus Pederson, Director, Telco Server Business, Hewlett Packard. “Through Emulex’s planned support of the DPDK for HP servers, HP extends our leadership in delivering high performance NFV solutions to network operators.”
