A low-cost solution that delivers up to 10x reduction in total cost of ownership through reduced hardware costs and associated power consumption when comparing a Kaloom leaf switch based Unified Cloud Edge solution versus that of an x86 and SmartNIC based solution.
A fully programmable and future proofed solution that leverages existing infrastructure investments via an automated zero-touch data center fabric with advanced self-forming and self-discovery functions with a fully programmable data plane based on the industry standard P4 programming language. Re-programming the infrastructure facilitates the addition of new features and services quickly by avoiding wait times associated to new silicon revisions which can impact production work while also enabling future protocols/encapsulations to be supported via a software upgrade.
Support provided for networking white boxes from multiple vendors running commodity hardware using merchant silicon provides significant CAPEX reductions for networking infrastructure.
By using Kaloom’s embedded vRouter within the “Unified Cloud Edge “solution, CAPEX is reduced as there is no longer a need to purchase separate/specialized physical or software-based routers and associated compute resources. In addition, performance is maximized as data forwarding within a given vfabric is done at the Cloud Edge Fabric’s line rate and not in a separate appliance, leading to performance improvements.
By using the Kaloom Virtual Switch (KVS) – an optimized virtual switch, NIC functionality is offloaded into the fabric thus minimizing compute resources, increasing the throughput by a factor of 2x and reducing the latency by a factor of 7x versus a traditional OVS based solution.
Native support for end-to-end 5G network slicing enables the partitioning of a physical edge data center into multiple independent virtual edge data centers, each with their own virtual fabric (vfabric). More specifically in the context of 5G UPF, a vfabric corresponds to a logical UPF slice instance having its own differentiated network capabilities and characteristics based on requirements specific to the services provided by that network slice. It provides a fully isolated broadcast domain at the hardware level enabling multiple customers’ network traffic to be carried on the same fabric while delivering better security and maintenance of SLAs thus ensuring a higher quality of user experience.
Improved quality of experience is achieved via an ultra-low latency (<4 ) high performance solution. By using the Kaloom Virtual Switch (KVS) – an optimized virtual switch, NIC functionality is offloaded into the fabric minimizing compute resources, increasing the throughput by a factor of 2x and reducing the latency by a factor of 7x versus a traditional OVS based solution.
Integrated with OpenStack, Kubernetes, and OpenShift and optimized for virtual environments, the “Unified Cloud Edge” solution provides support for both today’s virtual machine (VNF) based infrastructures, as well as, emerging container (CNF) based workloads.
An integrated 5G Packet core high capacity UPF with multi-TB/s throughput enables a larger adoption of customer services while meeting the ever-increasing demands of mobile data by offering a better quality of user experience.
