A cloud native 5G user plane

With a portfolio of virtualized network functions that pre-date even the first ETSI NFV ISG white paper, Metaswitch is a recognized trailblazer when it comes to delivering  communications services hosted in private, public or hybrid clouds. Seven years on, emerging 5G specifications are now mandating end-to-end cloud native infrastructure and Metaswitch is leveraging this unique position to, once again, take a principal role in developing technology that not only meets the requirements of its cloud-based control plane components, but the performance demands of a cloud native User Plane Function (UPF).

In this short 2-minute video, CTO Martin Taylor introduces our Composable Network Application Processor (CNAP), a revolutionary packet processing platform which delivers data throughput commensurate with custom switching silicon for data plane applications deployed in containers on standard x86 CPU server architectures.
