PROGRAMMABLE FORWARDING PLANES FOR SCALABLE CARRIER GRADE VIRTUAL BNG
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 services to offer on-demand 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.
Cost effective, dynamically scalable vBNG needed to meet exploding bandwidth demand
Rapidly increasing bandwidth demand and customer expectations for on-demand services are creating challenges for carriers as upgrading legacy network hardware is costly, complex, and inefficient. Built for yesterday’s less dynamic internet traffic, hardware-based BNGs lack the scalability, agility, and performance needed to keep up with rapidly growing bandwidth requirements.
Solution: The NoviFlow/netElastic scalable vBNG
A vBNG solution that can economically scale into the Terabit range
NoviFlow and netElastic solve this problem through a disaggregated vBNG solution that combines NoviFlow’s high-performance SDN switches and netElastics’s virtualized BNG software. The joint solution helps carriers meet (and benefit) from exploding bandwidth demand and changing customer needs by providing a best-of-breed Virtual BNG (vBNG) solution that combines the fastest fully-programmable forwarding planes in the market, Noviflow’s NoviSwitches, with netElastic’s massively scalable vBNG.
