 High-Capacity GTP-U Acceleration

Dedicating the Adax Pkt2 cards or cores to GTP-U user plane traffic delivers unrivalled performance critical to today’s mobile broadband traffic requirements. Supporting over 250,000 GTP PDP context per application, offloading the GTP-U data traffic to the Adax cards greatly increases traffic capacity by accelerating the data paths and freeing up the host system processor. Removing these bottlenecks in network performance improves Quality of Experience, supporting differential services and associated billing for improved carrier revenues.

Accelerating GTP tunnels also remains a critical requirement in legacy networks for extending the life of 3G RNCs, SGSNs and GGSNs and providing the platform for M2M and IoT applications.
