Exploiting DPDK-capabilities by Open Baton NFV MANO 

Network Function Virtualization reaches a crucial point in its lifetime. Almost ready to go for production there are still undiscovered things to be taken care of. A collaboration between Intel and Fraunhofer institute is looking into enabling DPDK-capabilities via the open source NFV MANO platform Open Baton to validate the performance boost via DPDK on the recently launched Denverton Kits. These small data centers allow everybody to experiment with virtualization, DPDK and NFV MANO, and, potentially, developing your own virtual (edge) network functions.
