DPDK Boosts Packet Processing, Performance, and Throughput
Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK)
Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) greatly boosts packet processing performance and throughput, allowing more time for data plane applications.
DPDK can improve packet processing performance by up to ten times. It's possible to achieve over 80 Mbps throughput on a single Intel® Xeon® processor, and double that with a dual-processor configuration.1 As a result, telecom and network equipment manufacturers (TEMs and NEMs) can lower development costs, use fewer tools and support teams, and get to market faster.
Product and Performance Information
Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel® products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Buyers should consult other sources of information to evaluate the performance of systems or components they are considering purchasing. For more information on performance tests and on the performance of Intel products, visit Intel Performance Benchmark Limitations.
