PROGRAMMABLE FORWARDING PLANES FOR SCALABLE PACKET BROKER SERVICES
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 and scaling broadband network packet broker services to offer on-demand telemetry and packet monitoring capabilities. 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.
IT’S GETTING HARDER AND MORE EXPENSIVE TO LEARN WHAT YOUR NETWORK IS UP TO!
With the arrival of virtualization, cloud computing and ubiquitous mobile devices, volumes of traffic are increasing exponentially. Also, the types of services offered increasingly rely on a huge variety of business processes provided as services that run across networks, many of which are distributed across multiple domains. As the percentage of data center traffic going ‘east-west’ within and between data centers has risen to over 80% of the total, the duplication massive amounts of network flows in order to get telemetry, monitor usage and analyze traffic, as well as the hardware and operating expenses of installing every increasing physical TAPs, is driving the cost of Packer Broker and Telemetry collection through the roof.
Solution: NoviFlow's Dynamic In-Line Packet Broker Services Option For CyberMapper
Optimize and Economically Scale Packet Broker Functions into the Tbps Range
NoviFlow’s Dynamic In-Line Packet Broker Services deliver optimized flow monitoring and acquisition functions without requiring the use of optical taps to duplicate packets on the main network and transmit them to monitoring and analytics network. NoviFlow’s DIPB Services are designed to optimize and scale the Flow Acquisition functions of the Packet Broker layered environment. NoviFlow’s DIPB Services move Packet Broker technology into the SDN world. For ease of use and integration into existing brownfield networks, the tap and filtering services are implemented and controlled via a RESTful API. Thus, the whole process of traffic monitoring with a tap/filter is virtualized, eliminating the cost and time required to place physical tap hardware, and enabling traffic to be monitored dynamically whenever needed under the control of Security Orchestration packages.
