Procera's NFV Software Solution Hits 40 Gbps on COTS

Procera Networks' PacketLogic/V 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.


Specifically, 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 15.0.4.5 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.

“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.”
