6WIND Announces Partnership with EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. to Build High Performance Routing Platform
Feb 17 15
6WIND announced its partnership with EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. and NGI SpA to build a high performance routing platform. NGI delivers ultra-broadband wireless Internet access via 'EOLO', its wholly owned wireless network, and was in need of industry-proven innovative technology for its next-generation network architecture. NGI selected 6WINDGate packet processing software and EZchip's TILE-Gx multicore processors (from EZchip's recent acquisition of Tilera) to build a custom Software-Defined Network (SDN) appliance, which will enable quick delivery of Internet access to its customers. Building a Software-defined Nationwide Wireless Network. To ensure continuous growth and scalability to its 'EOLO' wireless network, NGI decided to engineer an SDN appliance, tailor-made to its own requirements. This technology will also enable the company to expand its network to four new Italian regions that are lagging behind the EU schedule for broadband Internet availability. NGI plans to deploy an SDN appliance at each of the existing radio towers spread across Northern and Central Italy, while thousands of new towers will continue to be built over the coming years. NGI selected EZchip's TILE-Gx 72-core processors and 6WINDGate packet processing software to reduce the time to market in building its high quality network by providing ready-to-use networking software with the right feature set and performance, including data, control and management planes.
6WIND Launches Turbo Router and Turbo Ipsec Software Appliances
Jan 28 15
6WIND announced two new software appliances in its Speed Series family: Turbo Router and Turbo IPsec. Based on 6WINDGate packet processing software, which is deployed in Tier 1 networks worldwide, Turbo Router and Turbo IPsec can be installed quickly onto standard x86 servers within bare metal and virtual machine (VM) environments. The new Speed Series Turbo Appliances are designed to benefit Service Providers, Cloud and Content Providers and Enterprises with the best price/performance ratios when transitioning from hardware to software based appliances for flexibility, efficiency and cost savings. Compared to competing software routers, 6WIND's Turbo Router can deliver up to twice the performance at 1/4 the price. Compared to hardware-based IPsec Gateways, 6WIND's Turbo IPsec can save 80% of the cost per gigabit of IPsec throughput.
6WIND and Cavium Extend Partnership to Deliver Compelling High Performance Solutions for NFV and SDN
Apr 1 14
6WIND, and Cavium, Inc. announced an extension of their partnership to deliver joint network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) solutions. This joint solution of 6WINDGate(TM) packet processing software and Cavium processors will help customers to migrate to next generation NFV and SDN architectures seamlessly. The combination of 6WINDGate software and Cavium processors is a proven solution deployed and currently designed-in by tier-1 OEMs worldwide for high performance applications in wired/wireless infrastructure, enterprises and data centers. 6WIND and Cavium's extended partnership includes 6WINDGate support for the Cavium solutions such as LiquidIO and NITROX adaptors as well as OCTEON and Thunder multi-core SoCs to deliver the single high performance data path required to seamlessly and cost effectively transition to virtualized and software-based NFV and SDN architectures. CAVIUM LiquidIO Intelligent Network Adaptors: 6WIND and Cavium have established a strategic development partnership to leverage 6WINDGate's common data path offload from x86 to LiquidIO using the Intel(R) DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) API to significantly increase application performance. The same software can be deployed across multiple ISA based host server platforms. LiquidIO adaptors efficiently offload virtual switching and additional functionality such as security and deep packet inspection (DPI) functionality. 6WINDGate will enable smart NIC offloading while sustaining line rate traffic loads. CAVIUM OCTEON III and Thunder ARMv8 64-bit System on a Chip (SoC) Processors: 6WIND and Cavium will deliver joint technology to power leading edge multicore SoC packet processors by providing 6WINDGate on Cavium SoC platforms to enable complete NFV and SDN solutions. Cavium's optimized multicore processors integrate hardware accelerators for application processing and virtualization functionality, resulting in high throughput line rates for virtualized applications. CAVIUM NITROX Security Processors: 6WINDGate integrates NITROX security adaptors to be used as a cryptography offload and acceleration option with DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) software, providing a ready to use fast path IPsec networking stack for x86 servers without the need to modify existing Linux applications.
