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.

At Light Reading's NFV & Carrier SDN event in Denver, Ray Watson, vice president of Global Technology at Masergy, says that because of the growth in virtualization, the threat landscape is shifting in favor of the attackers. As a result, service providers need to think beyond just defending the perimeter and take a more holistic approach to security.
At September's NFV & Carrier SDN event in Denver, Light Reading sat down with Victoria Lonker, director of Product and New Business Innovation at Verizon, to chat about where the carrier is with delivering virtualized services to business customers.
Nick Thomas, practice leader of digital media at Ovum, talks about how digital transformation in the technology, media and telecom sectors will enable the development of a new range of applications and services for enterprises and consumers and how the upcoming Digital Futures event in London will examine ...
Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Jim Hodges speaks with Accenture's Larry Socher and Matt Anderson about what service providers must do to transform their business to get the benefits of SDN and NFV including: leveraging DevOps, introducing real-time OSS and implementing analytics.
VeEX's Senior Director of Business Development, Perry Romano, explains how VeEX provides tools to help install, maintain, monitor and manage network infrastructure efficiently and effectively. The portfolio of products on display include the RXT-6000, MTTplus and TX300s.
Light Reading Editor Mitch Wagner talks to NetScout CMO Jim McNiel about maximizing the benefits of enterprise cloud and digital transformation while minimizing potential pitfalls with a proper monitoring and instrumentation strategy.
Many of the initial use case implementations are single-vendor and self-contained. The industry is still climbing the virtualization maturity curve, needing further clarity and stability in the NFV infrastructure (NFVi) and greater availability and choice of virtualized network functions (VNFs). Interoperability between NFVis and VNFs from different vendors ...
Join us for an in-depth interview between Steve Saunders of Light Reading and Alexis Black Bjorlin of Intel as they discuss the release of the company's Silicon Photonics platform, its performance, long-term prospects, customer expectations and much more.
A vital part of increasing the number of women in comms is transforming the ways companies can support and empower women. While progressive company policies that support both men and women in achieving work-life balance are a step in the right direction, creating a company culture that supports those policies can at times be more challenging.
During this show, we'll talk to Lynn Comp, Senior Director of Industry and Sales Enabling (ISE) in the Network Platforms Group at Intel, about why those challenges exist and how companies can overcome them. She'll provide insight into how Intel has worked to create a culture that supports work-life balance, and provide steps and guidance for other companies wishing to do the same. We will also leave plenty of time to get your questions answered live on the air.
