6Wind Mobile Security Gateway Demo
This demo focuses on the 6WIND Virtual Security Gateway product (vSecGW) which can be deployed in a 4G or 5G network to deliver end-to-end encryption between femto cells, macro cells or small cells and the 4G/5G core network.
Using the 6WIND vSecGW, service providers can replace legacy physical security gateways with a virtual one running on COTS servers in hybrid environments and delivering superior deployment flexibility, a rich feature set, carrier-grade performance, and high availability at a fraction of the cost.
The purpose of these benchmarks is to determine the performance that can be achieved in a representative configuration of a Mobile Network Security Gateway for the aggregation of traffic coming from 4G/5G antennas, and/or femto/smallcells.
The demo is based on 4 different components, each running as a virtual machine on 3 different servers:
- 1 server running the 6WIND vSecGW appliance (vSecGW)
- 1 server running an emulation of 10K radios (gNodeB emulator)
- 1 server running a traffic generator (TRex) and a Grafana open observability platform
Each server is running with two Intel E810 NIC cards, providing a total of four 100 Gbps ports used within a bonding interface in order to handle an asymmetric traffic between the RAN and the Security Gateway appliance.
