Key Features and Benefits

    Pushing Cloud Networking to the Edge

    Automation-01

    Automated and Programmable Fabric

    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. Features a fully programmable data plane based on the industry standard P4 programming language helping to facilitate quickly timed re-programming of infrastructure with new features and services. Wait times associated to new silicon revisions which can impact production work can be avoided, while enabling future protocols/ encapsulations to be supported via a software upgrade.

    Increased Throuhgput-01

    High Capacity UPF with Multi-Terabit Throughput

    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.

    Reduced Latency - Product Page

    Ultra-Low
    Latency

    Improved quality of experience is achieved via an ultra-low latency 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.

    Slicing-01

    Native End-to-End
    Slicing Support

    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) corresponding to a logical UPF slice instance having its own differentiated network capabilities and characteristics. Each slice provides a fully isolated broadcast domain at the hardware level. As such, multiple customers’ network traffic can be carried on the same fabric thus delivering a higher quality of user experience through better security and maintenance of SLAs.

    Reduced TCO - Product Page

    10x TCO
    Reduction

    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 solution versus that of an x86 and SmartNIC based solution.

     

     

    Container Native-01

    Native Container and
    VM Workload Support

    Integrated with OpenStack, Kubernetes, and OpenShift and optimized for virtual environments, the Kaloom leaf switch based solution provides support for both today’s virtual machine (VNF) based infrastructures, as well as, emerging container (CNF) based workloads.

    Whitebox-01

    Networking White Box Support

    Support provided for networking white boxes from multiple vendors running commodity hardware using merchant silicon provides significant CAPEX reductions for networking infrastructure.

    vSwitch Offload - Product Page

    vSwitch
    Offload

    By using the Kaloom Virtual Switch (KVS) – an optimized virtual switch, NIC functionality is offloaded into the fabric thus minimizing compute resources and associated power consumption while increasing the throughput by a factor of 2x and reducing the latency by a factor of 7x versus a traditional OVS based solution.

    Cloud Virtual Router-01

    Integrated Virtual
    Router

    CAPEX is reduced as there is no longer a need to purchase separate / specialized physical or software-based routers and associated compute resources, also resulting in reduced power consumption. Since data forwarding within a given vfabric is done at the Cloud Edge Fabric’s line rate and not in a separate appliance, significant performance improvement is gained.
