Title:
PACKET TRANSMISSION METHOD AND DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/161938
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Disclosed are a packet transmission method and device. The method comprises: an aggregation agent receives a first packet of each of at least two virtual machines (VMs) from a virtualized network function (VNF) pool; the aggregation agent obtains a second packet according to the first packet, the second packet comprising a source Internet Protocol (IP) address and a destination IP address, the source IP address of the second packet being the IP address of the aggregation agent, the destination IP address of the second packet being the IP address of a server; the aggregation agent sends the second packet by means of aggregation links established between the aggregation agent and the server, the number of the aggregation links being less than that of sublinks. Therefore, the number of communication links established between a VNF pool and the server can be reduced, thereby saving the memory resource of the server.
