To support the fast-evolving 5G application ecosystem, the transition from the traditional Network Functions to Cloud-native Network Functions (CNFs) has become mandatory. The data plane performance in the cloud platform continues to be one of the key considerations in the transition. With Telco Cloud Platform 5G Edition, VMware offers numerous capabilities to address the data plane performance considerations.

This performance tuning guide provides a holistic approach to both the physical and virtual domains that help you achieve accelerated performance for the data plane CNFs. VMware collaborates with several Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) to ensure that the data plane CNFs benefit from VMware Telco Cloud Platform.
