FPGA-based ENET Flow Processors
Ethernity Networks features various series of FPGA-based ENET flow processors, with and without CPUs, to meet your network’s specific port speed and throughput needs. This ranges from the 5Gbps ENET3850 series to the 100Gbps ENET5100 series, with customized interface options including 1G, 2.5G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G, 100G, various Interlaken options, and 1G-10G Channelized Eth (G.999.1) options
Ethernity’s FPGA SmartNICs offer an affordable alternative to multi-core processors for complete CESR, by employing the ENET programmable hardware with various network interfaces, including 1/10/25/40/100G, to be integrated as an NFV acceleration platform. This provides acceleration for essential network virtualisation functions by offloading data path functions, including classification and filtering of millions of flows, monitoring, load balancing, fault management, data manipulation such as fragmentation, header compression, aggregation, traffic management, and security capabilities, all at a fraction of the CPU overhead.
The ESWAP™ (Ethernity Software Acceleration Package) software suite is a complete software development kit with drivers for both Linux stack and FPGA, a hardware abstraction layer and ENET CLI for troubleshooting, a DPDK module with Ethernity firmware acceleration, and examples for simplifying the development experience.
