Software architecture for a scalable carrier class edge router
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
With the rapid growth of the Internet in the recent years and the expected future growth puts greater demands on high performance access and routing technologies. The Ericsson AXI 510 Edge Router is a step in the right direction but to provide enough performance for future demands, a highly scalable system has to be designed. This new system is probably going to be based on a distributed architecture.
In this MSc thesis the author discusses possible ways of designing a scalable distributed edge router software architecture and what implications the distributed architecture has on different edge router applications such as Network Address Translation, tunnel termination and management etc. Furthermore, the author presents a design proposal for a fully distributed architecture.
