6WIND S.A. Key Developments
6WIND S.A. and ALTEN Group Announce Partnership to Provide NFV and SDN Solutions
Apr 29 13
6WIND S.A. and ALTEN Group announced a partnership to deliver best-in-class Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solutions to network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and telecom operators worldwide. Through this partnership, the ALTEN group will offer technology consulting and implementation services around the 6WINDGate(TM) networking software to NEMs and telecom operators working to virtualize network functions as part of an SDN-based architecture. NFV has emerged as a key approach to maximize network resource utilization by virtualizing functions traditionally implemented in dedicated hardware, thereby minimizing both CAPEX and OPEX. Operators are increasingly adopting SDN-based network architectures in order to improve network manageability and accelerate the deployment of new services.
Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. and 6WIND S.A. Announce 40 Gigabit Ethernet Packet Processing Solution for Telecom Data Centers
Feb 25 13
Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. and 6WIND S.A. announced a performance-optimized solution featuring the Mellanox ConnectX-3 Network Interface Controller (NIC) together with the 6WINDGate(TM) networking software. Combined with Mellanox's SwitchX 40GbE switch, software, and cables, the complete solution enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) and operators to accelerate the deployment of virtualized and non-virtualized networks and software defined networking (SDN) on standard high-volume servers. Together, Mellanox and 6WIND are the first to provide a comprehensive end-to-end 40GbE interconnect solution for telecom data centers, delivering end users the high bandwidth, performance and efficiency currently available in the market. Mellanox's ConnectX-3 is the NIC of choice for 40GbE server and embedded platforms. The Mellanox ConnectX-3 PMD, pre-integrated within 6WIND's enhanced Intel(R) DPDK library as well as within the 6WINDGate software, will be available in the second quarter of 2013.
LSI and 6WIND S.A. Team Up to Accelerate Mobile Infrastructure and Datacenter Network Performance
Oct 16 12
LSI Corporation and 6WIND S.A. announced the availability of the 6WINDGate(TM) packet processing software for the LSI Axxia Communication Processor family. This hardware/software combination provides network OEMs with a pre-integrated solution for accelerating networking functions while reducing product development costs and speeding time-to-market. The collaboration between LSI and 6WIND benefits network OEMs on several fronts: - Pre-integrated solution enables OEMs to more efficiently and rapidly customize their own hardware platforms. - Easy migration to the Axxia platform for OEMs that already use the 6WINDGate software. - Simplified system creation and deployment for OEMs by combining the switching, control and transport functions of the Axxia platform with 6WINDGate software. To help OEMs meet accelerated time-to-market goals, 6WINDGate supports LSI Axxia reference designs, allowing OEMs to rapidly develop and prototype systems. It includes a comprehensive suite of optimized, high-performance Layer 2 through 4 protocols that represent a complete data plane solution for networking equipment, eliminating the need to integrate protocols from multiple suppliers.
