Segment Routing (SR) is an emerging technology that helps in addressing the requirements of the new Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) architecture. It provides a unified solution for networking programmability, Service Function Chaining (SFC), protocols simplification, traffic engineering, and mobile versus fixed network convergence.

HCL’s SRv6 acceleration solution help Communication Service Providers to achieve 3X CPU core saving by offloading low-level SRv6 processing onto the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000.

Offloading SRv6 reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), increases the throughput, and reduces the latency of the network.

This Solution Brief document will help you understand why there is a need for Network optimization in this fast-evolving telco market - all while keeping costs under control.
