DPDK Network Fast-Path Offload Accelerator for IPv4, v6, Firewall, NAT, IPSec, GRE, Traffic-Shaping
Paxym Inc. Team completed its Network Offload Stack for use on Intel x86 Multi-core CPUs using DPDK framework. Earlier the same Accelerator Stack was also enabled for OCTEON-III and OCTEON-TX2 Multi-core CPUs using Simple-Exec (SE, SE2) execution environments. The Stack performs majority of IPv4 and IPv6 Packet Forwarding functions as well as NAT and Firewall features. IPSec Offload is also available, which can be added as a Module to this Stack. GRE offload feature is also a module addition to the Stack. Stack has been tested and deployed with OpenWRT and VyOS Control-Planes. See here for information on the Offload Stack.
