Abstract
This paper presents an extensible routing software platform called EROS (Extensible Routing Operation System), which is a modularized and layered system. EROS innovatively utilizes Data Forwarding Adaptation Layer to hide concrete hardware forwarding details and thus can be used in different network processor unit (NPU) based systems. This paper describes the architecture design of EROS and introduces some of the implementing issues. The experiments on two different NPU-based distributed routers illustrate that EROS is logically independent from specific hardware platforms and could deliver excellent forwarding performance without any isolation on the protocol conformability.
