Fixed Internet Managed IP Mobile Data
• Network infrastructure becoming virtual and software defined
‒ Distributed data centers
‒ Software Defined Networking (SDN)
‒ Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)
Source: Cisco VNI, June 2014
SDN and NFV
• Software Defined Networking (SDN)
– Abstracts and automates provisioning
– Separates data plane and control
– Increased flexibility
• Open interfaces
– OpenFlow, OpenStack
• Network Functions
Virtualization (NFV)
– Replaces fixed function systems
with virtualized functions on
common hardware
• Cost effective and highly
scalable
• Complimentary to existing,
non-virtualized solutions

Whither the Universal Platform -
Does one-size-fits-all make sense?
• Standard Server Vs Workload Optimized Platforms
– Telecom, Datacom, Server
• Hardware Bottlenecks & Tradeoffs
– Ethernet <> PCIe <> Memory <> QPI
• How to deliver packets from I/O to VMs and from VM to VM
most efficiently
• Offload of CPU intensive workloads
– Security Functions: IPsec, SSL etc
– Optimization functions: Compression
Standard Appliances – The Problem
• Whitebox system architecture limitations
• FWA-6512
– Balanced I/O & offload capability
– Inefficiencies of traffics/flows traversing socket boundaries remain

Audience Poll #1
• What actions are you most likely to take to improve
throughput in your next gen networking equipment design
(tick all that apply)
– A: Increase port bandwidths to 40G
– B: Increase port bandwidths to 100G
– C: Upgrade Intel CPUs to highest throughput SKUs
– D: Implement S/W Acceleration technologies on Intel Architecture
– E: Move to H/W based I/O Virtualization
Hardware – Getting the Right Balance
• Choosing the Base Platform
– Modular, flexible & upgradeable

• Accelerate it to the level which
makes most economical sense
Dedicated NICs and
look aside offload
on each socket
Communications Appliances are
Transforming
Intelligent Edge System Requirements:
• Network translation, overlays
• Tunnel termination (NVGRE, VXLAN)
• Distributed security, crypto
• Gateways
• Load balancing
• QoS and Metering
• Policy, ACL
• Virtual Switching
(Ex. OVS)
Flow Processors for High Bandwidth Networking
• Rapidly increasing interface speeds to
multi-port 10, 40 and 100 gigabit
Ethernet
• more than 10,000 operations per packet
• Moving beyond legacy 3/5/7-tuple
forwarding decisions to more than 40
match fields
• Flexible use of arbitrary classification
fields
• Support large flow tables for over 100M
flows
• Tunnel termination and
encapsulation/decapsulation
• Dynamic load-balancing and forwarding
FlowNIC technology solves the bottleneck

• FlowNIC performs load balancing between network ports and PCIe NIC
interfaces / cores / vcores
– Wildcard /hash based distribution up to full flow qualification
– Up to millions of flows
– Supports flow pinning to cores / threads
• Black-box S/W approach
FlowNIC Applications
• Flow NIC =“FlowSwitch”
– Adds on Chip forwarding
between Ethernet ports

• FlowNIC = Make use of Intel® Xeon horse power in multi-
socket environments for handling 100GE traffic with millions
of flows while freeing up CPU cores for application processing
• Processing and IO Density, FlowNIC = ideal for “bump in the
wire”
– Network Security. Firewall, IPS/IDS, UTM

Physical Switching Limitations
• Hardware dependent switching
(SR-IOV, RDMA, NIC embedded switching)
• Throughput is limited by PCI Express (50 Gbps)
and faces PCI Express and DMA additional
latencies
• Available PCI slots limit the number of chained
VNFs
• At 30 Gbps a single VNF is supported per node!
Virtual Networking Benefits
• Hardware independent
• Aggregate 500 Gbps bandwidth with low latency
• No external limit to number of chained VNFs
