Freescale Supports Linaro OpenDataPlane for SDN

Freescale Semiconductor announced support for the OpenDataPlane (ODP) standard, a common programming model for software-defined networks (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).

Specifically, Freescale will support ODP APIs for both ARM and Power Architecture versions of its QorIQ multicore processors. The ODP APIs offer a common abstraction interface for hardware-based acceleration functions such as IPSEC and traffic management, which are implemented in Freescale’s QorIQ multicore processors and engineered to support optimal network performance and security.

“As a founding member of the Linaro Networking Group, Freescale applauds the introduction of ODP version 1.0,” said Nikolay Guenov, director of product management for Freescale’s Digital Networking group. “Freescale and its QorIQ platforms are in solid alignment with ODP, which is the optimal open-ecosystem standard for meeting the performance and efficiency requirements our customers demand.”
