Telefonica and Brocade Establish Benchmarks for Network Functions Virtualization Solutions

Telefonica and Brocade have partnered to establish new benchmarks for the deployment and performance of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solutions. The consistent results from testing have provided clear evidence that will fundamentally alter the performance range service providers can expect from virtualized, software-based networking infrastructure. The establishment of NFV benchmarks is part of a joint effort by both companies within the Telefonica NFV Reference Lab framework. In the tests performed by Telefonica, the Brocade(r) Vyatta(r) 5600 vRouter achieved 80 Gbps on a Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Intel(r)-based x86 server. Deployed within a Red Hat KVM environment, the Brocade Vyatta 5600 was deployed as a single Virtual Machine (VM) and supported all of the server's available ports at line rate. In addition to Brocade vPlane(TM) technology, the Brocade Vyatta 5600 vRouter takes advantage of Intel(r) Xeon(r) processor-based servers and the Intel(r) Data Plane Development Kit to achieve the performance required by telecommunication and service providers.
