Freescale VortiQa Open Network (ON) Switch Software
VortiQa open network (ON) switch software is a commercial grade, OpenFlow™ protocol compliant data plane software optimized to leverage QorIQ communications platforms. VortiQa ON switch software is OpenFlow version 1.3.x compliant and has extensions to support Layer 3 and above protocol functions such as Firewall/NAT, IPsec VPN and QoS in addition to Layer 2 and Layer 3 data forwarding. The software is optimized to leverage Freescale QorIQ communications processors’ unique capabilities such as data path acceleration architecture (DPAA), and data path programmability and offers scalable and high-performance data plane processing functions.
The product, with its commercial grade quality, enables customers to incorporate OpenFlow software-defined networking (SDN) data plane functions in their advanced networking designs, based on Freescale QorIQ communications processors in a cost-effective and timely manner. The product is easily portable across multiple Freescale communications processors with moderate effort, enabling customers to re-use their software investment across a range of their product lines, such as low-end designs with optimized memory footprint to very high-end designs with large capacity of flows and IPsec tunnels and very high throughput, depending on the underlying QorIQ communications processor used.
Freescale offers commercial support and services around the product to jump-start customer designs there by offering further time-to-market and time-to-revenue advantages.
