Mobile traffic growth will demand rapid webscale deployment and 10X better performance
In the next few years, mobile traffic growth rates are poised to explode as much as 1000%. Virtualized network functions (VNFs) that are specifically designed for cloud/NFV environments, rather than simply adapted from older systems, will not only allow mobile service providers to achieve this scale but will also deliver much higher performance at a lower cost per bit.
Testing of Affirmed Networks virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC) solution shows line rate performance up to 150 Gbps with linear performance scaling in a given test case on servers powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors.”
