Stoke Pumps its Session Exchange for LTE

Stoke has boosted the capacity of its Session Exchange (SSX) mobile broadband gateway with a new packet processing card targeting LTE deployments. The new line card provides a 5X increase in throughput. Specifically, he XGLC20 extends Stoke's signature line rate session management, encryption/decryption, and visibility and control, with enhanced capabilities, including five times the throughput and up to four times the session management capacity. Enhanced capacity and capabilities for evolved packet core gateway applications delivered by the Stoke Session Exchange now include:

  • All packet operations function at line rate inclusively (i.e. L4-L7 traffic classification; encryption and decryption; policy enforcement, QoS, and accounting);

  • 20 Gbps (full duplex) line rate processing per line card;

  • Up to 240k active concurrent sessions and 3.8M active service classes per card; and

  • 4 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (active and standby) per line card.
