The exponential growth in data traffic puts ever-increasing demands on the packetprocessing elements in the network, resulting in a need for highperformance IP packet handling. This drives the emergence of a newgeneration of hardware accelerated platforms as well as an emergenceof user space applications and libraries. Hardwareabstraction layers like OpenDataPlane (ODP) and Data PlaneDevelopment Kit (DPDK) provides a hardware abstraction layer and acommon API for applications and libraries. However, they do notinclude commonly required functionality such as IP forwarding orIPsec. To solve this an additional piece of technology is needed - anopen IP stack that provides needed protocols and features for highperformance environments. This framework will enable networkapplication developers to meet both performance and platform targetscreating a basis for scalable high-performance network functions. This presentation will introduce an open source project providingthat missing piece. OpenFastPath (OFP) is the industry’s firsttruly hardware agnostic open source user space IP fast path solution.Backed by major industry players ARM, Nokia and Enea, OFP is aimingat providing industry leading scalability, performance and portability.
