High-Performance IPsec Offload with the Silicom IAONIC SmartNIC

Netadvia Research & Development

One of the key use cases for the Silicom IAONIC SmartNIC, based on the Intel® NetSec Accelerator reference design, is the offloading of network security functions. A very popular protocol used to enhance network security is IPsec. This is currently considered an extremely secure protocol for point-to-point encryption as it includes encryption of both the IP header and the payload. This article presents the results of our benchmarking into the performance of an IPsec implementation based on VPP (Vectorized Packet Processor), DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) and the Intel® QuickAssist (QAT) engine available on the 100Gbps version of the Silicom IAONIC SmartNIC

Optimising Network Packet Processing Using The Silicom IAONIC SmartNIC


At Netadvia, we believe that in today’s digital age, the volume of data transmitted and processed worldwide is increasing at an unprecedented rate. With the advent of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI), the sheer volume of data being produced is growing exponentially. This presents new challenges for businesses and organizations that need to process and analyse this data.

Latency-Optimised High-Frequency Financial Trading with VPP

Industry Focus

High-frequency trading, or HFT, refers to a type of algorithmic trading that uses systems to execute trades in financial markets at extremely high frequency. In high-frequency trading, milliseconds can make a big difference in the outcome of a trade. Optimising the latency performance of a high-frequency trading application can help gain a significant edge over the competition, and therefore help maximise potential trading profits.

10Gbps Network Packet Throughput on Intel Atom with DPDK


At Netadvia, we are firm believers in getting the most out of less when it comes to network devices. This philosophy is fuelled by the need to manage device performance against hardware costs, particularly as intelligence and processing power is being pushed towards the network edge. In this article,  we push the limits of Intel Atom powered network devices to achieve 10Gbps packet throughput using a single core.
