Reimagine your Mobile Network
At MWC 2019, we are thrilled to be demonstrating how our FPGA SmartNIC software and hardware can scale your NFV infrastructure and accelerate networking and security applications for a variety of mobile use cases.
With Napatech reconfigurable SmartNICs, numerous NFV acceleration solutions can be achieved reusing the same hardware from edge to core with varied software loads for different application and network architectures.
With the number of 5G mobile devices scaling to billions in the coming years, your mobile edge computing solution can achieve significant performance improvements through FPGA acceleration. This is achieved by offloading the virtual switching and flow-aware passive and inline application processing with zero packet loss up to 100 Gbps.
Napatech SmartNICs dramatically increase off-the-shelf server throughput while freeing up CPU cycles for more VMs and NFV application instances. Additionally, being FPGA-based, the software offers unique reconfigurability to add other custom capabilities such as encryption and decryption as examples.
Visit us in Hall 6 Stand 6J21 for live demos.

Realizing the promise of 5G
With 5G becoming reality, and to realize the vision of “Connected Everything”, mobile network operators are making the shift from proprietary hardware to standard server platforms. This will allow them to scale their infrastructure to account for the dramatic throughput 5G offers as well as the incredible increase in the number of endpoints.
To realize this promise of 5G, a new level of performance can be achieved by offloading network and security workloads for virtualized networking functions (VNFs) to dedicated offload processing elements based on programmable FPGA technology.
The shift towards cloud networking, 5G and IoT is disrupting the way applications and services are created and deployed. With this disruption, the gap between growing data processing needs and available capacity is widening.
Reconfigurable computing is an evolution driven by hyperscale cloud companies to address this gap by combining the flexibility of software with the high performance of hardware. By using vastly flexible high-speed computing fabrics like Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) as a complementary processing alternative, compute intensive tasks can be offloaded, assuring maximum server performance and CPU utilization.
Napatech pioneered the use of reconfigurable FPGA-powered acceleration hardware and software for networking and security applications. Our Reconfigurable Computing Platform™ runs on our family of high- performance SmartNICs and helps IT organizations to support the growing number of demanding software applications required to do business today. By enhancing open and standard servers, we improve services, boost applications and bring hyperscale benefits to networks of every size.
