Accelerating the Telecom Control Plane via Offload to Programmable Dataplanes

IIT Bombay - Systems and Networks Research Group (SynerG)

We redesign the mobile packet core by revisiting the division of work between the control and data planes. Our goal is to improve the control plane performance by offloading the subset of control plane functionality to programmable hardware like SmartNICs using P4.
