titleRARE validated design: [ SOHO #001 ] - key take-away
  • RARE/FreeRouter is a strong candidate for SOHO with multiple dataplane support solution.

If you are a company you run RARE/freeRouter with a versatile P4 switch such as APS® Networks as APS Networks® BF2556X-1T or WEDGE, but as a SOHO with a small budget you can run it with a DPDK dataplane and for older hardware you still have the possibility run it with a pure software dataplane

  • RARE/freeRouter is the first element at the very edge of the MPLS seamless architecture

End to end MPLS is now possible for the Service provider at an affordable price

  • RARE/freeRouter design can coexist with Virtualisation technology

CPU extension such as VT-x/AMD-V, VT-D/AMD-Vi, VT-c can provide coexistence between RARE/freeRouter and a small amount of storage and compute node. (Such as micro-K8/docker)

In the next article we will start our journey in creating a carrier grade CPE using the platform above.
