Abstract—This paper presents a prototype implementation of a multipurpose network platform which could be easily adapted to accommodate various types of future networks. Our design is motivated by the objective to overcome the drawbacks of existing whitebox networking devices in flexibility and performance points of view. Instead of relying on two extreme ends; ASIC or general purpose CPU, we propose a multipurpose platform which combines the moderate flexibility and rich features for fast packet processing of high-performance network processor, and almost the same flexibility as a general purpose CPU and the offloading functions such as security and deep packet inspection of multicore processor. We also show how we could use the multipurpose platform as a router with deep packet inspection feature by running an open source routing suite as control function, and provide some performance numbers for the system.

Index Terms—Software defined network (SDN), whitebox networking.
