Ethernity accelerates telco/cloud networks with innovative software solutions on programmable hardware
Ported onto any FPGA, Ethernity’s software offers complete data plane processing with a rich set of networking features, robust security, and a wide range of virtual functions to optimize your network. We offer our customers complete solutions that quickly adapt to their changing needs, improving time-to-market and facilitating the deployment of edge computing, NFV, 5G, and IoT.
Dramatic Changes to Telecom
The telecom industry is undergoing a major transformation. Communications and cloud service providers are rapidly virtualizing their networks with SDN/NFV and are deploying compute resources to the network edge to satisfy their end users, who expect faster, more cost-efficient services.
The Challenge and The Solution
Moving to programmable networks seems to be the only valid option for telco/cloud providers. However, pure software solutions are problematic in terms of performance (especially latency) and economics of scale when there is huge growth in users and data consumption. CPUs are quickly overloaded by networking functions, and issues arise with rising costs and power consumption.
The answer is software-defined networking on programmable hardware within COTS servers. Hardware-based acceleration, especially through FPGAs, reduces CPU load while maintaining the exact same programmability and flexibility of pure software solutions. This improves network efficiency, security, and affordability.
The usage of FPGAs is growing exponentially, especially at the network edge, where they are optimizing costs, enabling full programmability, and meeting customer expectations. Today, though, there is a need for a company that can combine expertise in networking solutions with expertise in FPGA-ready software.
Ethernity, with its many years of experience in this field, is therefore perfectly positioned to become the industry leader in delivering software solutions for networking and security over FPGA.
