PROGRAMMABLE FORWARDING PLANES FOR CARRIER SCALE CG-NAT
NoviFlow switches implement the next generation networking technology – a programmable forwarding plane with match+action rules in a fully programmable pipeline. This new networking paradigm has huge implications for implementing network intelligence where it can do the most work: optimizing the connection of clients to services inside large scale carrier and service provider networks. It enables network policy enforcement, resource optimization and cybersecurity to work directly the network fabric to optimize user experience, new service deployment, efficient multi-tenancy, and both operating and capital costs.
ACCELERATING DEMAND STRAINS EXISTING IPV4 SUPPLY
Recent years have seen a tremendous and accelerating increase in demand for data networking capacity from carriers and enterprises. The multiplication of mobile and connected devices, the proliferation of streaming video-based applications, and cloud-based services will only augment the challenge of delivering capacity and ensuring quality as data moves from and between the web, mobile, and cloud-based networks. To compound the issue, the surge in IoT and the recent global depletion of public IPv4 addresses strains existing IPv4 infrastructures and increases demand for CG-NAT IPv4 services.
Solution: NoviFlow’s CGNMapper and Fortinet’s CG-NAT service
Terabit capacity and dynamic scaling to stay ahead of today’s exponentially growing demand for CG-NAT services
The joint solution combines NoviFlow’s CyberMapper SDN-enhanced forwarding plane with Fortinet’s FortiGate CG-NAT service, effectively incorporating this service in the SDN network. Together, the NoviFlow/Fortinet solution delivers high throughput and dynamically scalable CG-NAT services in a programmable SDN networking environment that can handle complex flow processing, massive throughput, and scalability, making it possible for Fortinet’s CG-NAT users to stay ahead of today’s exponentially growing demand. The solution delivers cost-effective filtering and load balancing functions and can handle over 1.5 Tbps of throughput while reducing total customer network CAPEX and OPEX.
