Multicore processors integrate OpenFlow-compatible software for SDN applications
Freescale Semiconductor (Austin, TX) introduced new VortiQa SDN solutions, which include VortiQa open network (ON) director and switch software, optimized to run on current and future generation Freescale QorIQ multicore communications processors. The software comes with pre-integrated, commercial-grade OpenFlow-compatible data plane software to give OEMs and ODMs a jump-start in designing high-performance, optimized SDN system-level solutions. The software is engineered to help QorIQ customers shorten design cycles and improve the manageability of networks, while helping network operators reduce OPEX and CAPEX. The VortiQa SDN solution:
- Is compatible with the OpenFlow 1.3.X open standard and extends to cover protocols Layer 4 and above.
- Includes an embedded SDN controller implemented in C language for compact embedded designs
- Is supported with applications including Linux IPsec and others.
