Networking technology is pervasive. It’s used in a variety of industry segments including telecom, cloud, enterprise, security, financial services, healthcare, and defense.

All these segments have networking infrastructure requirements in a variety of shapes and forms, and each of those infrastructures have one common theme, and that is data plane – a logical entity in the system which processes the bulk of the packetized networking traffic. This data plane within networking infrastructure elements needs to be fast, flexible, and open. The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) delivers that in the form of a community-driven open source software project.
