Mavenir, 6WIND partnership extended to drive 4G, 5G and NFV
To achieve maximum packet processing capacity and performance across its next-generation telecommunications networking systems, Mavenir extended its 6WIND license to include the 6WINDGate™ TCP stack. In addition to 6WIND’s software, Mavenir benefits from their Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) expertise, network software design skills and licensed support. The TCP Stack addition complements a variety of DPDK-based Layer 2 through Layer 4 6WINDGate stacks that are widely built into the Mavenir product suite.
Mavenir’s extended partnership grants access to the following 6WIND software and benefits:
- 6WINDGate source code for Linux networking;
- Complete accelerated Layer 2 – 4 networking stacks for application performance and portability across hardware platforms;
- TCP termination module to scale TCP-based application performance; and
- Seamless upgrade path from bare metal to virtual deployments with the same software.
“6WIND’s high performance networking stacks enable us to meet our customers’ capacity and performance needs regardless of whether they deploy in bare metal or virtualized environments,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO, at Mavenir. “6WIND is one of the keys to our success as a SDN/NFV solution provider.”
