Maximizes cost savings, network flexibility and service agility for broadband operators seeking to deploy NFV
Fremont, Calif., October 14, 2014 — Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Subscriber Experience company, announced today that PacketLogic/V, Procera’s Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) software solution, has been benchmarked by the European Advanced Network Test Center (EANTC) at 40Gbps with fully active Internet Intelligence functionality, running on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment. This test establishes Procera as a leader in the NFV performance arena, and enables network operators to build new business and deployment models that deliver on the promise of NFV to cost-effectively improve network flexibility and service agility.
“A lack of proven NFV performance capabilities in the industry has been blocking many NFV deployment scenarios by operators over the past year,” said Peter Alm, chief product architect at Procera. “Achieving the same performance with COTS NFV as we do on our PacketLogic™ hardware platforms is a significant technical accomplishment that delivers economic and technological value to network operators.”
“Network Operators are very concerned about the performance of data plane NFV solutions,” stated Carsten Rossenhoevel, co-founder and managing director of EANTC. “Procera has set the performance benchmark with the verified performance of the PacketLogic/V solution at 40Gbps/s and delivers on the vision of separation of hardware and software that the ETSI NFV ISG was established to promote."
The EANTC testing measured the performance of the PacketLogic/V solutions running on a dual socket Intel® Xeon® E5-2699v3 CPUs clocked at 2.30 Ghz and 18 cores with 64 Gigabytes of memory (RAM). The software environment for the test was Debian 7.6 and Qemu 1.6.2, as well as version 188.8.131.52 of PacketLogic software. The tests measured the performance and latency of PacketLogic/V running in a NFV configuration with full Internet Intelligence capabilities being exercised. In the tests where PacketLogic/V was achieving 40Gbps of performance, the CPU usage never exceeded 45%, demonstrating that the performance could go higher if the platform supported more interfaces.
PacketLogic/V platforms enable flexible deployments of PacketLogic software using industry-standard, off-the-shelf hardware and software virtual machine environments. The PacketLogic/V platform is empowered by the PacketLogic software suite, and is designed to enable network operators to gain insights and take action on broadband traffic to enhance the subscriber experience.
