Advantages of SRv6 in real networks
2022 MPLS SD & AI Networld joint session with Bell Canada
The first day of the event saw NoviFlow lead a joint presentation with Bell Canada on the advantages of SRv6 in real world networks. The session included how SRv6 and a P4 programmable switch fabric such as Lanner’s HTC-6600 can reduce carrier network services costs by up to 90%, footprint by 75%, and power consumption by as much as 66% and thus facilitate a cost effective migration of latency sensitive applications to the network edge. The highlight of the session was Bell Canada’s Daniel Bernier presenting the network operator’s actual deployment experiences for this solution. See the session on demand here.

The same day as the joint presentation with Bell Canada, Cisco Fellow Clarence Filsfils reviewed the IETF status on SRv6, latest deployments and exciting innovations in SRv6, including NoviFlow, who was listed as a key solution provider supporting the newly minted uSID (C-SID-NEXT) standard.Visit our SRv6 page here.
The day was capped by a second session from Bell Canada, this time from Technical Fellow Daniel Voyer, who presented the “Motivation to migrate from SR-MPLS to SRv6 uSID. Review of the security model.” NoviFlow was excited to see Mr. Voyer clearly lay out the economic benefits of NoviFlow’s NoviFabric solution. More details on MPSLWC22 day one here.
NoviFabric SRv6 solution simplifies network edge architecture by running load balancing, service chaining with SRv6, packet brokering and TAPs directly in the switch, eliminating the need for expensive and hardware based appliances, providing elastic scaling of services, better visibility and control of network and multi-cloud resources, and delivering the tools operators need to monetize 5G and other network edge services.
