Bump-in-the-wire service programming at the Network Edge with low latency and multi-Tbps speeds
The ever-growing demand for user-plane bandwidth is driving massive increases in wireless access, processing and speeds. These make security and related services increasingly difficult to deploy, adding both complexity and spiralling costs. In CSP networks, 5G monetization is driving new security requirements for slice-specific tolerances and new traffic steering capabilities beyond destination-based routing. And the nature of the business means CSPs need to offer multiple security tools and support multiple policies – there is no “one-size-fits-all”.
NoviMapper delivers a next-generation programmable networking solution for deployment of services including physical and virtual security services with low-latency and multi-Tbps speeds so CSPs can easily monetize, manage and scale 5G, Cybersecurity and other network services.
NoviMapper delivers flexible service programming and elastic, dynamic scaling of bump-in-the-wire network services by implementing powerful Load Balancing, Packet Steering, Service Chaining and Visibility solutions that run on high-performance programmable network fabrics. NoviMapper simplifies network architecture at the edge by replacing hardware appliances and network TAPs by packet processing rules and software executing directly in the network switch, directing traffic only to the right services and applications in the order required to meet customer SLAs. Benefits include reducing hardware costs, enabling easy service insertion and elastic scaling of services, reducing the cyber-attack surface, and increasing network robustness.
The NoviMapper solution achieves this unprecedented performance, flexibility, and scale by leveraging the power of programmable match-action pipelines on a variety of disaggregated hardware platforms and using open standard interfaces such as gRPC and P4Runtime. NoviMapper runs on standard servers and is deployed with select COTS switches running the powerful Intel Tofino to deliver a fully programmable network fabric in a simple, scalable, compact form factor and at a fraction of the price of conventional networking solutions.
