With samples, simulations and illustrations he describes general bottlenecks and considerations, then he examines the concept of the IP-address lookup and routing table, classic schemers for linear search and caching (as well as binary, cache-compressed and dynamic tries), multibit tries, pipelined multibit tries, efficient data structures for "bursty" access patterns, caching technologies, hashing schemes, TCAM-based forwarding engines, and routing-table partitioning technologies.
MoSys' VP of Technology Innovation and System Applications, Michael Miller, will discuss how SDN forwarding engines and complex security applications require unprecedented memory access rates to support up to 600Mpps throughput in his presentation, "MoSys' Second Generation Bandwidth Engine doubles performance, enabling 400GE Packet Header Processing and 100GE Deep Packet Inspection.
The Northchurch platform is based on the SoftCell(TM) programmable policy-based forwarding engine that provides flexible configuration and wire-speed performance within an integrated policy management architecture, allowing service providers to deploy a very scaleable solution and tailor personalized services for individual enterprise customers.
Drawing on experiences from the super-computer world, Avici's team has developed ASIC technology that provides the TSR with a micro-programmable forwarding engine that can shuttle 40-byte packets at wire rate at a fraction of the cost of CAM (content addressable memory) technology; a switching chipset that lets the fabric grow incrementally while the machine remains operational; and full QoS handling of all packets.
Envoy-XE includes a forwarding engine, internal 8,192-entry MAC table, flexible ingress/egress tag/label processing, MEF-/IETF-compliant traffic manager supporting four classes of service, 2,048 flows, and 256 kbps granularity; support for 4,096 multicast sessions; and per-flow green/yellow/red byte and packet counters for SLA performance monitoring and billing.
Patent Office Patent 6,876,657 -- System and Method for Router Packet Control and Ordering: Hardware interconnected around multiple packet forwarding engines prepends sequence numbers to packets going into multiple forwarding engines through parallel paths.
