AFFIRMED NETWORKS* VIRTUALIZED EVOLVED PACKET CORE (VEPC)
A virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) enables Communication Service Providers to reduce cost by moving core network components of the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network from high-cost dedicated hardware to low-cost commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. This document illustrates the high performance of the Affirmed Networks virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) solution on 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8280L processors (formerly codenamed Cascade Lake). The test results achieved a throughput of up to 168 Gbps and a packet rate of up to 29 Mpps on dual-socket servers powered by these Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8280L processors, using Intel® XXV710 25G NICs.
