Can Software Routers Scale?

Software routers can lead us from a network of special-purpose hardware routers to one of general-purpose extensible infrastructure--if, that is, they can scale to high speeds. We identify the challenges in achieving this scalability and propose a solution: a cluster-based router architecture that uses an interconnect of commodity server platforms to build software routers that are both incrementally scalable and fully programmable.
