Santa Clara, CA – October 15, 2014 – Netronome, the leading provider of data plane processing solutions for software-defined networks (SDN), today announced that the company’s solutions for SDN and network functions virtualization (NFV) designs will be demonstrated along with their partners in several venues at the SDN and OpenFlow World Congress in Düsseldorf, Germany, October 13-20, 2014. The premier SDN and NFV event in Europe will feature two presentations by Netronome industry experts, as well as three demonstrations with industry partners.

Netronome FlowNIC acceleration cards and FlowEnvironment software will power standard x86-based servers in three demonstrations:

  • ONF SDN Solutions Showcase for Carrier/WAN SDN: Netronome and a partner will jointly demonstrate a service gateway that features rapid deployment of many instances of carrier applications for new services. The SDN-based OpenV6 design for IPv4 to IPv6 migration delivers line-rate throughput for millions of simultaneous flows being converted from IPv4 to IPv6, while under SDN control through open northbound APIs.

  • ONF SDN Solutions Showcase for SDN Testing and Validation: Netronome, Spirent Communications, and Advantech will demonstrate solutions for testing and validating SDN-enabled appliances and servers for large scale data centers. An Advantech® CGS6010 2U server will host Netronome’s FlowNIC PCIe acceleration cards and FlowEnvironment The production-ready network appliance will serve as the SDN, OVS and OpenFlow 1.3 device under test. Spirent® TestCenter products will create demanding traffic patterns showcasing standards compliance, line-rate throughput, leading flow setup rates and interoperability.

  • Selective Offload for Open vSwitch Acceleration: Netronome will exhibit high performance OVS forwarding, with hardware support for VXLAN and NVGRE encapsulations, VTEP acceleration, and dynamic fast-path forwarding for millions of flows. This demonstration can be seen in Netronome’s stand, #47.

Additionally, two Netronome industry experts will be featured in the technology sessions:

  • Johann Tönsing, Netronome’s senior vice president and chief architect, will participate in the “ONF/SDN Startups” panel discussion on Tuesday, October 14. He will comment on the use of Network Flow Processors to achieve high throughput/large capacity network traffic processing in Open vSwitch equipped servers, SDN gateways and NFV platforms.

  • Sujal Das, Netronome’s senior vice president and general manager of strategy and data center business unit, will present “Efficient Scaling of SDN/NFV: Policy Deployment Use Cases and Open APIs” on Thursday, October 16.

“Designers of products aimed at SDN and NFV designs, as well as the enterprises and network operators that are deploying them, are now looking for ways to massively scale performance,” said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president and general manager of marketing at Netronome. “Our speakers and demonstrations featured at Europe’s preeminent SDN and NFV conference will show how Netronome’s solutions are being used to meet these requirements.”
