This PoC demonstrates virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) functions as well as enhanced resource management on AMD’s 64bit ARM and x86 processors. The demo shows scalable system based on different CPU architectures and network traffic load migration by moving control and data traffic from one target system to another target system. In this POC, the team use ARM-based processor formerly called as Hierofalcon and x86 processor formerly called as Bald Eagle, which act as primary hardware platforms, and utilizes Aricent assets and components from Open Source communities, such as OpenStack.org and OpenDataPlane.org, among others, to create the basis for an NFV reference platform. The demo includes vEPC’s virtual applications demonstration and test on AMD ARM and x86 platform, control and data traffic migration scenario to showcase service resiliency.
