6WIND Supports Intel® Xeon® D processor for its Virtual Cell Site Router (vCSR)

Paris, France and Santa Clara, CA, February 24, 20226WIND, a leading high Performance and Secure networking software company announces the 6WIND Virtual Cell Site Router (vCSR) solution now supports Intel’s new Intel® Xeon® D processor.

As Mobile Network Operators seek cost-effective solutions to deploy 5G services, increasingly many are looking to Virtual RAN solutions leveraging best of breed vendors. By using COTS server with 6WIND Virtual Cell Site Router (vCSR), MNO’s can consolidate the functions of DU, and Router on a single COTS Server, therefore, reducing CAPEX footprint, cabling and OPEX for each Cell Site deployment.

Intel’s new Xeon® D processor dense compute and connectivity resources [with up to 100Gb Ethernet throughput] and integrated accelerators [Intel® QuickAssist Technology (QAT) and Inline IPSec] enables the functionalities at the edge that your business demands. The new Intel Xeon® D capabilities combined with 6WIND vCSR make the ideal Cell Site Router for 5G rollouts.

The 6WIND vCSR is designed to be deployed virtualized or containerized on an x86 COTS server, providing all required layer 3 connectivity features between the access network and the 5G core network. The 6WIND vCSR simplifies the mobile network architecture and significantly reduces operator TCO. It is optimized to develop high-performance routing and IPsec VPN connectivity with minimal CPU resource usage. In addition, the 6WIND vCSR comes with an open management and enhanced automation capabilities to ease integration with Operator’s NMS and OSS and simplify network operations. The 6WIND virtual Cell Site Router can deliver additional IP/MPLS capabilities to extend the provider network to the far edge.

“We are excited to announce our support of Intel’s new Xeon® D processors. The enhanced capabilities of these next-generation processors are fully leveraged at the 6WIND vCSR and more broadly across the entire 6WIND Virtual Service Router product family, delivering improved CAPEX and simplifying 5G edge deployments. Beyond MNOs, this partnership will widely benefit Communication Service Providers, Enterprises and Cloud Providers to cost effectively accelerate their adoption of 5G!” commented Julien DAHAN, CEO, 6WIND.

In addition to 6WIND vCSR, all of the 6WIND products support Intel’s new Xeon® D processor, including 6WIND Virtual Service Router (VSR) solutions; vPE, vSecGW, vCG-NAT, vCPE and vBorderRouter, 6WINDCloud and 6WIND Virtual Accelerator.
