PARIS -- 6WIND, the gold standard for data plane processing in software-defined networks, today announced the establishment of an open-source project that provides a comprehensive set of resources to accelerate the development of Intel architecture-based networking products. At dpdk.org, engineers can find libraries, drivers, documentation, development mailing list, git repository and support relevant to high-performance packet processing using the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK) software. As the founder of dpdk.org and a major contributor to the project, 6WIND will discuss its Intel® DPDK solutions and services in booth 401 at the Open Networking Summit in Santa Clara, CA from April 15th through 17th. In telecom, enterprise and cloud applications, the latest high-performance Intel® architecture processors are an increasingly viable foundation for packet processing, thanks to continued improvements in their architectures combined with software enhancements provided by the Intel® DPDK, which is a set of optimized libraries and drivers provided to OEMs under a BSD licensing model. Since the launch of the Intel® DPDK, several software companies have introduced extensions to its baseline functions as well as initiatives that provide professional services and technical support to developers. For example, 6WIND has developed strong expertise in leveraging the Intel® DPDK as a result of optimizing its 6WINDGate data plane solution, comprising Layer 2, IP forwarding, virtual routing, IPsec, firewall, Large Scale NAT and TCP termination, to run on that platform. Resources from these companies are accessible via dpdk.org, along with patches from other developers within the open-source Intel® DPDK community. 6WIND

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
