NoviFlow High-Performance Programmable Forwarding Planes for Governments and Intelligence Agencies
Government IT groups and Intelligence Agencies must be equipped with state-of-the-art network solutions. It is a question of security and protecting national interests. With the rapid advancement of technology, governments are challenged to strengthen the performance, stability and safety of their network systems.
However, governments deal with all the same network growth, cybersecurity and evolution as enterprises, yet at an even greater scale. Virtualization brings forth issues with network complexity and scalability. Integrating parts from multiple vendors with in-house developed systems gives way for interoperability complications. Despite the elevated cost of incumbent vendors’ proprietary protocols, their solutions implement only a part of SDN’s full potential and the growth of demand outpaces the current infrastructure’s ability to scale economically.
These challenges present an opportunity for improvement and NoviFlow offers robust, scalable solutions to optimize and reinforce government network systems. Our standalone NoviSwitch/NoviWare Platforms feature the most complete implementation of SDN OpenFlow on high-bandwidth network hardware. Our programmable forwarding planes can be integrated via Open Source APIs or provided controllers. Pre-programmed solutions and abstraction middleware reduce both the costs and software development delays. NoviFlow products support OpenFlow on 6.5 Tbps Barefoot Tofino hardware for National Scale throughput and capacity, as well as a software upgrade path to P4-Runtime for extended solution in-service lifetime.
