Performance Evaluation Of Hardware-Accelerated SDN And NFV

Beijing Institute of Technology - Network Architecture, System and Security Lab. (NASS)

This project is to provide a high-performance and scalable name-based data plane for future Internet architecture, like named data networking (NDN) and ADN (application driven network). The data plane is implemented on Netronome Agilio SmartNIC platform, aiming to achieve 40-100Gb/s wire-speed performance. The group is one of the key contributors to an open source project of NDN project, namely NDN forwarding daemon (NFD), and now moves forward to port NFD to Netronome for high performance. Our goal is to show that the data plane of further Internet architectures can be efficiently supported by current IP-spired accelerators.
