Ericsson introduces multiple-application card for its Smart Services Routers (SSR) to deliver real-time capabilities
Powered by an in-house-developed Smart Network Processor (SNP 4000) with patented architecture for flexible allocation of resources
Granular and personalized services with tens of millions of traffic flows, which enables applications and service models that are driven by service provider software-defined networking (SDN) and the cloud
To meet the demand from the vast amount of traffic streams generated by new innovative cloud services, Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) today announces the release of a new multiple-application card that will support various services concurrently without compromising performance. This board in the SSR 8000 family is powered by SNP 4000, a revolutionary processor introduced by Ericsson in March 2013.
New application and service models such as network slicing - driven by the adoption of SDN, virtualization and cloud technologies in the network - require the kind of scale and processing power provided by the SNP 4000, to provide granular and personalized services with tens of millions of traffic flows.
SNP 4000 ensures that the multi-application card delivers predictable line-rate performance and excellent QoE for consumers. The SNP 4000 is an advanced network processor that enables:
high-touch services, such as advanced subscriber management, IP routing and new SDN-driven applications
flexible allocation of resources using a patented architecture
Layer 2 to Layer 7 applications running concurrently on the board without compromising on performance
a standard programming environment with GNU C/C++ tool chain on Linux, making it easier and faster to add new applications.
Bob Wheeler, Senior Analyst at The Linley Group, says: "Ericsson is the first vendor to develop a network processor that handles advanced features without compromising performance or the scale of services."
