Intel Networking


Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) requires flexibility in packet processing functions that in turn requires software implementation of the data plane.

A Flexible Scalable Approach

Intel® architecture provides a standard, reusable, shared platform for SDN/NFV that is easy to dynamically upgrade, maintain, and scale.

Network Recipes for an Evolving Data Center

When you are ready for SDN/NFV, what choices must you make? Get several recipes for building virtualized network switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, web servers, and other communication functions.

Telco-Grade Service Chaining

Service chaining is an emerging set of technologies that will enable telecom service providers to virtualize services currently being carried out by proprietary software and hardware. Learn about two proof-of-concept demos to address the technology gaps.

Getting Started with the DPDK

Follow steps to get started with the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), including building and testing a DPDK sample application, l2fwd.

Using Open vSwitch* with DPDK on Ubuntu*

Ubuntu* distributions now include a standard system package for DPDK-enhanced Open vSwitch* (openvswitch-switch-dpdk). These steps are required to install, configure, and use this package for enhanced network throughput and performance.

QoS Configuration and Usage for Open vSwitch* with DPDK

Learn how to configure an egress policer Quality-of-Service (QoS) instance for a Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) interface on Open vSwitch* (OvS) with DPDK that enhances DPDK port types performance in Open vSwitch server deployment.

How Intel® QuickAssist Technology Accelerates Network Functions

Intel® QuickAssist Technology accelerates and compresses cryptographic workloads by offloading the data to hardware capable of optimizing those functions. This article covers a variety of use cases, including improved packet processing performance, pattern matching, SDN/NFV integration, data movement in Hadoop* installations, and performance acceleration where data encryption is required.
