DPDK in 3 Minutes or Less…

DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) came along. It said, "from today on wards there is going to be just one agency, itself, following just one rule book, a dpdk library", irrespective of what the requestor's end goal is. All packets, needing network functionality processing (again, it means routing, switching, firewall allow/deny etc),

Virtual Machines or Containers. Which is Better in NFV Infrastructure?

There are a significant amount of advantages of using container-based VNFs rather than hypervisor driven. But if we look at the current stage of NFV progress in NFV technology innovation was not much faster which were anticipated in 2012 due to lack of common guidelines model. But now, 5G networks are started to deploy and tested in
