PROGRAMMABLE FORWARDING PLANES FOR CARRIER GRADE NETWORK-AS-A-SERVICE
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 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.
THREE WORDS: BANDWIDTH ON DEMAND!
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 web to mobile to machines. In an on-demand world, how can carriers and ISPs offer their customers bandwidth (and other network services) that can scale orders of magnitude on-demand, without having to massively overprovision their networks and drive up costs?
Solution: The NoviFlow/Ordnance Broadband Termination Platform
Carrier Grade Network-as-a-Service
With the advent of the Australian National Broadband Network, NoviFlow and Ordnance teamed up to build an SDN-based centrally-controlled distributed data plane delivering an unprecedentedly flexible BNG services platform specifically designed for the Australian nbn™ Network. The service provides bandwidth on demand portal for customers, along with automated provisioning via APIs, protocols, ssh or manually through a web portal interface. The solution is also available as a hosted service in major markets or on-premise for large-scale networks.
