Unprecedented Price/Performance in Truly Scalable, Carrier-Grade NBN Broadband Access Solutions for Network Operators, Cloud Providers and Enterprises
Rapidly increasing bandwidth demand and customer expectations for on-demand services are creating challenges for broadband service providers as upgrading legacy network hardware is costly, complex, and inefficient. Built for yesterday’s less dynamic internet traffic, hardware-based BNGs lack the scalability, agility, and performance needed to keep up with rapidly growing bandwidth requirements. The arrival of Austalia’s National Broadband Network (NBN) provides new capabilities, but an evolved Broadband access solution optimized for this architecture is needed to fully deliver these capabilities to Broadband service providers.
NoviFlow and Ordnance Networks solve this problem through a disaggregated Broadband Access Gateway solution that combines NoviFlow’s high-performance SDN switches and Ordnance’s BNB Access Gateway software, resulting in greater scalability, performance, and flexibility, along with lower costs. The joint solution enables carriers to realize unprecedented ease of use, dynamic scalability and on-demand access to Australia’s NBN.
What The NBN Broadband Access Gateway Does
NoviFlow’s line of high-performance fully programmable NoviSwitch forwarding planes leverage the advanced packet handling capabilities of the NoviWare Network Operating Software running on high-performance network processors to significantly boost throughput. NoviSwitch is available in a variety of port configurations, with enhanced filtering options at line rates of 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 40Gbps and 100Gbps, and support up to 16 million simultaneous flows, depending on the NoviSwitch model. As an added benefit, the NoviSwitch/NoviWare programmable match-action pipeline architecture is specifically designed to simultaneously support in a single device multiple network services such as switching, routing, service chaining, firewalling, load balancing, etc.
