Sandvine States 155 Gbps NFV Performance (Beats Procera by 5 Gbps)

A post to Sandvine's blog by Don Bowman [pictured], the company's CTO, provides the results of a performance test to the vitrulaized version of its Policy Traffic Switch (see "Sandvine: 'leading edge CSPs around the world are currently working with Sandvine on virtualization pilot projects'"- here).

"Our Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) Virtual Series represents a particularly significant investment, as the PTS is the very visible, very physical hardware that many people picture when they think of Sandvine.

We are happy to report that our investments are paying off: in our latest performance testing, the PTS Virtual Series reached 155 Gbps (96.8% of a theoretical maximum of the 160 Gbps line rate). Importantly, this performance was achieved while the PTS Virtual Series dealt with real-world demands: using representative traffic mixes and requiring subscriber state awareness.

.. To test the PTS Virtual Series, we used a COTS server provided by Dell (Dell R730x, Dual Intel Xeon E5-2699 v3 (Haswell) processors, Cores 36/72 vCPUs, 128GB DDR3 ECC memory with 16x 10GbE and 4x 40GbE) and configured to achieve maximum performance based on readily available hardware components"

A month ago Procera announced that it has "..optimized PacketLogic/VTM virtualized software solution to demonstrate over 150Gbps running on Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 v3 Family-based commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms" (here)
