Startup Deploys Network Performance Sensor Using
1U, OEM Acceleration Platform: ATLAS-1000

Proprietary Hash Algorithm Calculation in the FPGA
Resulted in 70% Savings in CPU Cycles

Learn how a network performance analysis startup, laser focused in developing breakthrough analytics solutions, solved key challenges to deliver a distinct market leading product. The platform had to meet specific requirements to be deployed in multiple telecom customer networks as a network sensor or probe.

Specifically for this startup, Accolade implemented a proprietary hash algorithm calculation in the FPGA, resulting in an eye-popping 70% savings in CPU cycles. This particular custom feature resulted in significant performance improvement and was one of the driving forces behind selecting Accolade for this time sensitive project.

Key Challenges:

  • Highly CPU intensive hash algorithm
  • Ultra precise timing
