SDN/NFV Open Networking

Agility by Software-Defined Network

SDN is an architectural approach to separates data plane and control plane to work out new network topology. Which means that you could enable a network device to be process intelligently packet-forwarding engine and centrally controlled. NFV aims to transform that way of network operators architect by network virtualization technology.

 

The advantages of SDN/NFV is not limited to:

High Availability

  • DVirtual machine and network functions management
  • OpLive migration, Host evacuation

Trust & Security

  • Trusted Compute Pools, including bare metal
  • Enabling Router/Firewall/IPS/DPS
  • Chaining security services to virtual and physical network equipment

Higher Performance

  • Accelerated packet processing (e.g. Open vSwitch with DPDK)
  • Intelligent hardware based for virtualization efficiency (CPU features, PCI Express* Accelerators, SR-IOV etc.)

Cost Reduction & Efficiency

  • Reduced power consumption and space through consolidating.
  • Lower OPEX and CAPEX to avoid from ASIC or proprietary design

Deployability & Stability

  • Improved installation & upgradability
  • Disaster recovery capabilities through agile network
