“As communications service providers and large central cloud providers extend their virtual infrastructure toward the edge, technology is required to overcome the unique challenges that arise. When virtual networking applications are run through software programmed on legacy hardware, service providers face severe challenges of space and power to reach the growing number of users and devices, and they are limited by performance issues, especially in terms of latency and jitter.
The best way to address these concerns is to implement an FPGA-based SmartNIC solution, which offers scalable, deterministic performance with very low latency at a fraction of the space, power, and overall cost. Such a solution is secure, open, and fully programmable, ensuring that costs remain low well into the future.”
