Telecom Lead @ CTIA 2012: Freescale Semiconductor will
introduce VortiQa intelligent traffic classification and load balancing (ITCL)
VortiQa ITCL software classifies and distributes data
traffic flow throughout enterprise and data center network elements, including
multiple VAS nodes, allowing network architectures to scale to accommodate the
increased load as equipment is added.
In addition, VortiQa ITCL software duplicates the traffic
multiple times to enable several types of network traffic monitoring.
VortiQa ITCL software is designed for Freescale’s QorIQ
multicore embedded processors. The production-ready application software is
optimized for Freescale’s QorIQ P4080 and QorIQ AMP T4240 platforms, working
closely with the processors’ data path acceleration architecture (DPAA) and
other advanced silicon features.
Data center and enterprise OEMs are racing to keep up
with ever-increasing performance and traffic volume requirements, all while
trying to drive more utilization from their network resources and investments,”
said Raja Tabet, vice president of Software/Systems Technology for Freescale’s
Networking & Multimedia Solutions Group.
Freescale’s scalable VortiQa ITCL software allows
customers to build network infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably
streamlines information, while preserving the value of their network equipment
investments,” Tabet added.
The VortiQa ITCL software’s data classification and
distribution capabilities balance traffic loads evenly and intelligently. The
software classifies packets to stateful flows, filters the packets, identifies
complex application flows and then distributes the packets to the appropriate
ITCL software enhances performance by optimizing the
computing resources. Bandwidth and power are saved as ITCL software dynamically
engages and disengages VAS nodes according to demand.
And network equipment lifespan is extended via improved
utilization of network resources, boosting overall efficiency and allowing new
equipment to be added incrementally. Network operators can flexibly scale their
infrastructure by adding servers or VAS equipment as their business grows.
