|Freescale Simplifies Software-Defined Networking Implementations with New, OpenFlow™-Compatible Software Integrated on QorIQ Multicore Processors|
Comprehensive VortiQa SDN solutions running on Freescale QorIQ communications processors streamline the creation of highly optimized SDN system-level solutions
The comprehensive 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
“For decades, Freescale has played an important role in each networking
market transformation, and we are now uniquely positioned to help drive
the innovations in programmable networks by offering integrated
solutions, software and hardware,” said
VortiQa SDN solutions establish a primary building block for the design of SDN/OpenFlow-compatible customer premise and enterprise network equipment such as secure routers and gateways based on Freescale communications processors. Networking solutions for data center and cloud deployments including private, public and hybrid clouds will also benefit.
The VortiQa SDN solution is compatible with the OpenFlow 1.3.X open standard and extends to cover protocols Layer 4 and above. In addition to dedicated data plane software, the solution includes an embedded SDN controller implemented in C language for compact embedded designs, and is supported with applications including Linux® IPsec and others. VortiQa SDN solutions are optimized and validated on Freescale processors before they are delivered to customers to enhance customer time-to-market, and are backed with commercial support and services.
“ONF member companies are actively driving the commercial adoption of
open SDN and supporting the needs of end users, both through
organization involvement and their own product development,” said
VortiQa open network (ON) director and switch software works today with current generation QorIQ processors, and for optimal software reuse, support is planned for future QorIQ platforms based on the software-aware, core-agnostic Layerscape architecture.
