Networks (AIM: ENET.L), a leading innovator of comprehensive
networking and security solutions on programmable hardware, announced
today that its ACE-NIC100
FPGA SmartNIC has been selected for implementation within the
FitBNG, the latest Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) product by FiberHome
Telecommunication Technologies, a major Chinese networking and
telecommunication equipment provider.
The accelerated platform will integrate FiberHome’s BNG software and
Ethernity’s SmartNIC hardware using standard DPDK (data plane
development kit) to fully offload up to 80Gbps of data processing to the
ACE-NIC100’s onboard FPGA. This will minimize CPU intervention, saving
CPU cycles and significantly reducing CPU power and cost. Moreover, the
ACE-NIC100 will support tens of thousands of subscribers with PPPoE
(Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) termination, performance
monitoring counters per subscriber, and hierarchical quality of service
(H-QoS), which is impractical for implementation in software-only BNG.
“We have been working closely with Ethernity for months to develop a
solution that includes the performance and features that best fit our
needs,” said Mr. Wang Ye, Director of NFV Product Lines at FiberHome.
“Ethernity’s ACE-NIC100, with its high throughput and offloading
capabilities, is an ideal fit for our FitBNG solution architecture, and
by reducing the required CPU cores, we have improved our cost efficiency
as well. It’s a very powerful enabler for FiberHome.”
The resulting product will be promoted to FiberHome’s core Chinese
telecom operator clients, including China Unicom, China Telecom, and
others that serve tens of millions of households.
“We are thrilled that FiberHome chose Ethernity’s SmartNIC to accelerate
their new FitBNG,” said David Levi, CEO of Ethernity Networks. “With
FiberHome’s powerful software and Ethernity’s FPGA-based hardware, the
product will provide high performance and reduced cost through hardware
acceleration, making it especially attractive to Chinese service
The new product will be jointly showcased by Ethernity and FiberHome at Mobile
World Congress Shanghai 2019 from June 26-28 at Hall N2 Booth E70.
