White Paper: 100G+ on a Standard Platform
Smart devices and cloud services are driving dramatic increases in network bandwidth. Behind these services is a network infrastructure that needs to simultaneously deliver security, flexibility and performance. Security and flexibility require line rate deep packet inspection (DPI) and support for software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV). Performance requires support for multiple 10Gbps, 40Gbps and 100Gbps interfaces. The systems that support this network infrastructure need to be scalable and upgradable so service providers can quickly respond to demand and deliver profitable services to satisfied customers.
This white paper discusses the bandwidth challenges being experienced by service providers and explains why data traffic will continue to grow. It goes on to discuss the benefits of using an AdvancedTCA® (or ATCA®) platform for telecom and other high availability applications and explains two approaches to increasing ATCA platform capacity.
The paper concludes with an overview of the Artesyn Centellis™ platform and explains how it can be used to support up to 1.6Tbps aggregate data bandwidth today and up to 4.0Tbps in the future using the same chassis and backplane for applications such as deep packet inspection, security, packet classification and load balancing.
