BIG-IP VE for SmartNICs

Boost DDoS Mitigation Capacity

As service providers continue to roll-out 5G infrastructure and more enterprises undergo digital transformation, the potential for hyperscale cyberattacks grows too—with many anticipating that DDoS attacks will increase in size, complexity, and severity to further exploit these changes.

BIG-IP VE for SmartNICs provides up to a 300x increase in DDoS mitigation capacity by integrating with Intel’s robust FPGA PAC N3000 SmartNIC, offloading the detection and blocking of malicious traffic to an embedded FPGA and freeing up BIG-IP VE CPU resources to boost performance.

High-Capacity DDoS Protection in Cloud Environments

Data security is an imperative for enterprises and service providers, but the combination of higher bandwidth networks and an ever-increasing number of secure internet-connected devices make it more difficult for core CPUs to keep up with the need for wire-speed data encryption/ decryption.

Intel QAT is a hardware adapter purpose-built to offload and accelerate cryptographic processing, and when used in conjunction with BIG-IP VE this combined solution reduces strain on compute resources, reduces TCO and yields significant performance improvements when processing encrypted traffic.
