DARPA's FastNIC targets 100 times faster network


Network speed and system performance are a matter of great concern to the world technology. However, there is not enough innovation in the segment concerned network. But now, it seems that DARPA wants to change this with the FastNIC program.

In fact, in one suspension on its blog, DARPA announced that it is going to create a new network interface, which will be 100 times faster than usual.

According to the organization, the network interface used to connect a system to a network such as Ethernet, which creates the "real delay in productivity processor"

DARPA essentially refers to a network card (NIC), which helps connect multiple computers to a local network. On a computer, the NIC is an asset hardware acting as an intermediary between one computer and a network. He accepts data from the network and transmits them to computers.

As DARPA points out, the main problem with NICs used today is the low speed of information exchange between the computer modules. Given how fast a supercomputer can be, the network interface actually limits the maximum performance of.

“Today, network performance in state-of-the-art technology is about 1014 bits per second (bps) and the data is processed in total at about 1014 bps. Current interfaces only provide from 1010 to 1011 bps processing applications"Said Dr. Jonathan Smith, Program Officer at DARPA's Information Innovation Office.

With FastNIC, DARPA plans to revise the entire network interface. The plan is to provide 10 Tbps network speed, thereby accelerating 100x performance.

At this time, no timetable has been announced as to when the new NIC will be released. However, the good news is that the software libraries created by FastNIC will be open source. So if DARPA FastNIC finally sees the light of day, it will be able to become the new standard.
