IP Routing Processing with Graphic Processors

Throughput and programmability have always been the central, but generally conflicting concerns for modern IP router designs. Current high performance routers depend on proprietary hardware solutions, which make it difficult to adapt to ever-changing network protocols. On the other hand, software routers offer the best flexibility and programmability, but could only achieve a throughput one order of magnitude lower. Modern GPUs are offering significant computing power, and its data-parallel computing model well matches the typical patterns of packet processing on routers.
