Recent performance testing has demonstrated that Affirmed Networks’ vEPC (virtualized Evolved Packet Core) is delivering more than 150 Gbps of throughput on a single Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor-based server. Affirmed, working with Intel technology experts who witnessed the test set up and parameters, organized the tests of its Mobile Core vEPC on servers powered by Intel Xeon Platinum processors and Intel Xeon Gold processors to demonstrate the performance and linear scalability of the vEPC solution in a given test case.
Building on a track record of innovation, Affirmed Networks is delivering the highest performing vEPC in the market that is deployed in over 80 customers across the globe. As network operators transform existing 4G networks the need to continually improve performance and scalability has become a key business imperative. With the arrival of 5G, this need becomes even more pronounced inorder to serve the bandwidth demands of 5G applications and services.
Testing was conducted with real-world deployment call models supporting high bandwidth, consumer edge applications over Affirmed’s latest software release (including CUPS, 5G NR, automated service provisioning, network slicing, and integrated virtual probe capabilities).
