"Network and IT professionals should consider software-based routers for many specific routing requirements. Specific parts of the network that can be in scope for software routing include data center routing; branch routing; and specific edge routing functions, such as broadband remote access, or BRAS, and Diameter, in the telecom network.
Router functions that are not currently in the scope of software-based routing include high-performance edge and core routers and routers with support for highly specialized (non-IP, legacy) protocols. "
This is the general impression and also conclusion from this Tech Target article.
Is this really true? Join us on February to learn more.
Title: Understanding the performance of Intel Server Platforms for Networking
Abstract: Explore the packet I/O data path from a NIC across PCI-Express to cache/memory and understand how to build efficient CPU code for networked applications.
Speaker: Venky Venkatesan, Intel Fellow, Chief Architect – Packet Processing and Networking Applications
Talk 2: Achieving 100Gbps Performance at Core with Poptrie and Kamuee Zero
Abstract: Utilizing a software router as a core router of an ISP is challenging as the requirements of performance and routing table size is high. At NTT Communications, we are working on a software router that satisfies these requirements. In this presentation, we introduce Poptrie, a fast and scalable software IP routing table lookup algorithm, and Kamuee Zero, a software router which integrates DPDK, RCU and Poptrie to achieve the requirements of core routers.
Speaker: Yudai Yamagishi, Research Engineer at NTT Communications
