Silicom’s new FPGA SmartNIC N5010 series | Intel® Stratix 10 Based SmartNIC
The Silicom FPGA SmartNIC N5010 combines the high performance of a dedicated network appliance with the flexibility of a commercial off-the-shelf server. By accelerating VNFs at the network edge, Silicom FPGA SmartNICs helps transform broadband delivery for communication service providers (CoSPs) dramatically reducing infrastructure complexity and offering real-time services that generate new revenue streams.
With 4G and 5G technology evolving rapidly and new capabilities appearing with regularity, it’s essential for network operators to avoid being limited by their hardware choices, while being able to keep up with the increasing network performance demands. CoSPs need to be able to adapt quickly and offer new services as they become available to take advantage of new revenue opportunities.
The Silicom FPGA SmartNIC N5010 is a high-performance programmable PCIe server adapter featuring an Intel Stratix DX210 FPGA, and is designed to accelerate application such as:
- Network Function Virtualization (NFV) workloads including:
- vBNG: H-QoS, Classification, Policing, Scheduling, Shaping
- Cyber security
- Mobile networking
- vEPC, 5G NGCN
