A few minutes…and you’re on the fast path to building the next generation of faster, smarter and more secure network applications. Three minutes – that’s all it typically takes to install key components of the new Wind River Intelligent Network Platform.
So, let’s take the next few minutes to look at an evolution taking place for our networking and communications customers and Wind River’s software solutions for this market. Tens of billions of connected devices continue to generate massive amounts of traffic and security threats are on the rise. In order to better manage the flood of traffic and handle these threats, greater network intelligence and security (without sacrificing high performance) is needed. On top of that, network products need to be scalable to handle future growth. Wind River is rising to meet these challenges and this evolution starts with the newly launched Wind River Intelligent Network Platform. It is an integrated and optimized embedded software platform consisting of the critical runtime components needed to build high-performance intelligent network products. So, what does that mean for the customer?
- Incredible network protocol and application acceleration performance – up to 1100% improvement in IP-forwarding, and up to a 500% improvement in throughput for UDP and performance boost for TCP.
- Virtually limitless value-add intelligence opportunity with software-enabled deep packet inspection functionality
- Huge time to market advantage with years of engineering investment already done for you – (did I mention the three minute installation?)
And it gets even better. Wind River Intelligent Network Platform is designed to give customers maximum scalability and flexibility to build more advanced network elements across product lines and across the infrastructure. The platform takes full advantage of the latest multicore processors from Intel allowing for the consolidation of management and data plane into one system. The platform serves as the foundation for a number of evolving network applications such as: secure clouds, VPNs, intelligent edge servers, and the list goes on.
Now, are you ready to learn more about the Wind River Intelligent Network Platform? I’ll be taking a deep dive look into the different functional components of the platform in an upcoming webinar. In the meantime, check out additional product details here. We’re eager to help customers get a jump on the changing network.
