6WIND S.A. Key Developments

Mavenir Extends Partnership with 6WIND to Accelerate the Next-generation of Telecom

6WIND announced that Mavenir has extended its long-term partnership to deliver innovative solutions for 4G, 5G and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) services including Media Resource Function (MRF), Evolved Packet Core (EPC), Virtual Radio Access Network (vRAN) and Session Border Controller (SBC) products. To achieve maximum packet processing capacity and performance across its next-generation Telecom networking solutions, Mavenir extended its 6WIND license to include the 6WINDGate™ TCP stack. In addition to 6WIND's software, Mavenir benefits from 6WIND's Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) expertise, network software design skills and licensed support. The TCP Stack addition complements a variety of DPDK-based Layer 2 through Layer 4 6WINDGate stacks that are widely built into the Mavenir product suite. Mavenir's extended partnership grants access to the following 6WIND software and benefits: Networking Performance Acceleration and Portability: 6WINDGate source code for Linux networking. Complete accelerated Layer 2 " 4 networking stacks for application performance and portability across hardware platforms. TCP termination module to scale TCP-based application performance. Virtualization Readiness: Seamless upgrade path from bare metal to virtual deployments with the same software.

6WIND Announces Secure Site-to-Site VPN Solutions for COTS Servers

6WIND announced its Secure Site-to-Site VPN solution for data center inter-connection. The solution is based on 6WIND Turbo IPsec™ software, a widely deployed product for high performance networking infrastructure with requirements of 10 Gbps and beyond. 6WIND Turbo IPsec provides IPsec VPNs on Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) servers at less than 50% of legacy hardware system costs. 6WIND Turbo IPsec can be deployed bare metal or in a virtual machine with the same functionalities and performance, enabling a seamless transition to virtualization. IPsec VPN solutions are critical to create secure, high speed communication tunnels between trusted endpoints across the Internet. Since IP networks are inherently insecure, IPsec VPNs provide the encryption and authentication techniques required to maintain data confidentiality and integrity. However, network capacity growth requires scalable throughput, which was previously only possible through hardware IPsec VPN gateways that delivered performance at the expense of vendor lock-in and high costs. There is a market need for alternatives to avoid sacrificing security and performance while reducing costs and vendor lock-in. Cloud-based data centers are leveraging 6WIND Turbo IPsec software with standard Linux applications on COTS servers as an alternative to expensive big name system vendors. 6WIND's Secure Site-to-Site VPN solutions provide an alternative using software with the following benefits: High Performance IPsec: Linear scalability of performance by simply adding processing cores regardless of deployment configuration (bare metal or virtualized). 12 Gbps of encrypted IPsec traffic per core can scale a 10-core Intel server to more than 100 Gbps. 7 Gbps per core when combining IPsec, virtual routing, filtering and IP tunneling features. Traffic loads scale across 10, 40 and 100G connectivity. Complete Security Feature Set & Resiliency: Combines virtual routing, IP tunneling, filtering and high availability to create the required security features to clearly separate trusted and untrusted networks with port and system level redundancy. Management and Monitoring: Provides industry-standard CLI and XML-based management, SNMP, and works seamlessly with management and monitoring tools that support Linux. Virtualization Readiness: Complete virtual appliance option with support for Linux KVM, VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors with same software used on bare metal and the same performance.

Canonical Enters Partnership with 6WIND to Distribute 6Wind Virtual Accelerator

6WIND reported a partnership agreement with Canonical to distribute 6WIND Virtual Accelerator, which is hypervisor acceleration software for virtual networking, in its Juju Charm Store. 6WIND Virtual Accelerator has been validated on Canonical's Ubuntu platform to accelerate cloud networking performance. In addition, both companies worked together to integrate 6WIND Virtual Accelerator with Canonical's Juju, and a Juju Charm is now available to deliver the high performance and control demanded by Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) and other software networking workloads requiring low latency and high network throughput. 6WIND said that its Virtual Accelerator software solves common hypervisor bottleneck problems that limit the adoption of NFV, data center virtualization and network appliance virtualization on Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) servers. It is installed on the KVM hypervisor to provide accelerated virtual switching and networking features to offer an alternative to SR-IOV or PCI passthrough that break virtualization.
