Intel architecture (IA) processors along with Intel Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK) and Intel QuickAssist Technology enable the creation of high-performance data plane applications that previously required niche purpose-built processors or custom application- specific integrated circuits (ASICs). This paper discusses Wind River’s solutions and how they work with Linux to accelerate a variety of data plane networking applications, including routing, network security, wireless infrastructure, and others that need high-performance networking.
