Kontron, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, Enea and Qosmos Showcase Security Dpi Virtualized Network Function on 64-Bit Arm Technology and OPNFV Framework

Kontron, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation and Enea revealed the integration of a security network functions virtualization solution on 64-bit ARMv8 modular servers. With a goal to provide new architectural choices, the platform uses the OPNFV Arno release on new ARM-based Kontron SYMKLOUD converged infrastructure. Operators now have an alternative and reliable path to reducing capital and operating expenses for their NFV infrastructure deployments. Backed by a well-cultivated ARM ecosystem, vendors of virtualized network functions can easily expand the scope of their offerings to carrier clients. Layered View of Combined MWC Demonstration: Layer 7 Firewall Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) VNF using the ixEngine from Qosmos for DPI and Enea Linux 5.0 as the guest OS, running on ‘Arno SR1’ OPNFV implementation, running Ubuntu 14.04 for NFVI (KVM and OVS) and VIM (Openstack and OpenDaylight); Complete set-up running on AppliedMicro X-Gene® 64-bit ARMv8-based modular servers, populated in a Kontron SYMKLOUD converged infrastructure platform; Highlights the potential of 3,024 VNF cores in a fully populated 42U rack. Qosmos ixEngine® is the de facto industry-standard IP classification and metadata extraction engine based on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). Networking and security vendors use ixEngine to gain application visibility, accelerate development, benefit from continuous protocol signature updates and strengthen capabilities of new solutions. Enea Carrier-Grade Open Source Network Operating System: The Enea COSNOS is a system-wide software platform that incorporates all aspects of NFV and includes operating systems, middleware and necessary open source building blocks from industry collaboration projects, including OPNFV, OpenDataPlane, OpenStack, OpenFlow, KVM, OpenDaylight and Open vSwitch. High Density ARM-based Converged Infrastructure Platform: The SYMKLOUD platform portfolio now includes a 10GbE modular server designed with two AppliedMicro X-Gene 64-bit ARMv8-based System-on-Chip processors for server-class performance and mobile-level power efficiency. Each 2U SYMKLOUD enclosure has a capacity of nine modular, hot-swappable servers, which translates into a configuration of up to 144 X-Gene cores, or, 3,024 cores in a fully populated 42U rack. This is a massive 97% increase in space efficiency compared to traditional dual socket 1U commodity servers. Moreover, its modular and short-depth footprint packs in high density compute, storage and a 20GbE switch fabric that supports bare metal SDN switching for legacy and OpenFlow traffic. Potential use cases include: NFVi as a Service; VNF as a Service; vMobile Core Network and vIMS; vMobile base station; vCPE/home environment; and vCDNs.
