Sandvine NFV Reaches 1.1 Tbps Throughput w/10 RU of Servers

Sandvine announced that "NFV Now a Reality for Operators of Any Size 

.. the Sandvine Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) Virtual Series has established a new Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) performance benchmark by achieving 1.1 Tbps of throughput performance.

.. The test conducted by Sandvine utilized a Dell™ PowerEdge™ M1000e Blade Enclosure, 14 Dell™ PowerEdge™ M630 Blade ServersIntel® Xeon® processors E5 v3, Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapters X540 and X710, the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) providing exceptional packet processing performance, and the Intel® Open Network Platform Reference Architecture (Intel® ONP)".

".. the 1.1 Tbps benchmark was achieved using a traffic mix that uses various packet sizes and flow-types which is representative of real-world network conditions. Additionally, each Dell PowerEdge M630 Blade Server utilized only one of its dual sockets, with the Intel® Xeon processor utilizing approximately 60% of its processing capability. This extra compute room ensures that it is possible for operators to implement the same advanced traffic measurements and intelligent broadband use cases that they have previously done on purpose built hardware.
