Environment Abstraction layer initializes DPDK modules before an application start. It mainly initializes lcore(s), memory and ports used by application.

GTP is an overhead and it slows down the data transmission speed through LTE network. I heard about intel dpdk based solution can make data path faster since it takes packet from interface card and does processing. Is there any relation between intel dpdk and SDN ?

As per my understanding, if a process within a virtual machine is going to use dpdk for the fast path, it takes the control of physical interface.There is a use case for which i have to spin up multiple virtual machines on the same server to implement a service chaining functionality. Each service needs dpdk based interface. Now question is "Can I provide the same physical interface for the dpdk running in each VM somehow ?" Or it is not possible, sharing of same physical interface with the multiple virtual machines ?
