Ciena Vyatta Dataplane technology

Ciena Vyatta Dataplane technology enables hardware-like routing performance in a software based network appliance.

Utilizing innovations from Ciena, Ciena Vyatta Dataplane technology is a Layer 3 forwarding plane that is architecturally separate from the vRouter control plane. By enabling each forwarding plane to be allocated to multiple CPU cores, the vRouter can deliver 10+ Gbps performance while eliminating resource contention.
