TCP PEP and QoS Software Modules for the HTS Satellite Communication System

 

We developed TCP PEP and QoS modules using DPDK for an HTS satellite communication system for a leading satellite telecom equipment supplier.

satellite
Geostationary satellites introduce high signal delay, impacting TCP performance. Our solution employed a specialised TCP Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP) using Intel DPDK. This approach separated and directed TCP traffic, eliminating the need for client-side configurations.
Additionally, we implemented traffic speed limits with DPDK. Due to varied client usage patterns, some users consumed more bandwidth, affecting overall communication quality. Our solution allocated specific speeds to ensure consistent, high-quality communication for all users.

 

System Software for High-Speed Network Data Storage

Our team is working on system software development for high-speed network storage, handling simultaneous 8K video streams from eight cameras.
A key system function involves decoding and synchronising two 8K video streams.

SPDK integration is a potential enhancement for this ongoing project.

We utilise DPDK to enhance processes by:
  • accessing fragmented frames, reassembling them in physical memory, and sending them for decoding while simultaneously saving to disk;
  • utilising zero-copy bypasses the kernel, resulting in 2–3 times performance improvement over standard methods like Linux sockets.

FAQ

What traffic processing operations do you deploy with SPDK and DPDK technologies?

 

  • Traffic policing with speed limits to distribute bandwidth equitably among multiple users
  • Filtering by specified criteria such as MAC and IP addresses, VLAN tags
  • Traffic capture for monitoring, analysing, and troubleshooting
  • Inspection and pattern matching for verification and security purposes
  • Encryption, decryption, and hashing for protection
  • Load balancing with traffic distribution across multiple interfaces or paths
 

What is DPDK and how does it impact networking?

 

DPDK is an open-source library and driver suite designed for Linux. It was initially developed for Intel platforms but now supports various hardware from multiple vendors.

  • Efficient network handling: DPDK reduces overhead and latency, which is crucial for sectors like trading, finance, gaming, and large data centres. It enhances cybersecurity by enabling packet access and DDoS attack prevention.
     
  • Driver optimisation: DPDK drivers directly interface with the network interface controller (NIC), bypassing Linux kernel adapters and ensuring speed and simplicity through zero-copy operations.
     
  • Comprehensive API: The DPDK API offers extensive functionalities and auxiliary functions, streamlining complex tasks and operations.
