Ethernity Networks provides solutions for a wide range of mobile network elements, covering backhaul infrastructure with solutions for radio access, Cell Site Router (CSR), and Evolved Packet Core (EPC).
In mobile networks, bandwidth is precious. Only solutions that enable high performance and efficiency are appropriate to handle such demands. Ethernity’s ENET technology is designed to accelerate complex functions by offloading them from the CPU to an FPGA, increasing efficiency and enabling full bandwidth. Additionally, Ethernity’s solutions incorporate essential networking features, such as QoS, IP fragmentation, GTP tunneling, security, and SLA monitoring to further improve performance for mobile networks.
The newly developing 5G architecture is targeted toward supporting large numbers of devices with extremely low latency, offering many services that can be divided among virtual network operators. As such, network slicing is a mandatory part of any 5G solution. Ethernity supports network slicing by offering an easily configured virtual interface and virtual table for grouping and allocating resources as necessary within the data plane.
Because 5G is entirely software-defined and agile, it will also require virtual network functions (VNF) for fast adoption of the infrastructure. However, VNF cannot comply with 5G’s low latency requirements without being offloaded from the data plane. Thus, Ethernity’s solution is perfectly aligned with 5G requirements.
Ethernity also supports header compression as part of its data plane to enable optimization of the sensor network data flow for IoT infrastructures.
