ThinkingNetworks™: Ahora es el momento de las redes definidas por software y guiadas por políticas

Mobile World Congress 2013 | Hall 6, Stand 6E21

Los operadores móviles están compitiendo para crear nuevas fuentes de ingresos y asegurar así su lugar en el ecosistema del estilo de vida digital para poder ofrecer servicios personalizados, dinámicamente, y ajustar la capacidad de la red de acuerdo con lo que aprenden acerca de los suscriptores, las aplicaciones y de los servicios. Para avanzar en esa visión, Tekelec está revelando su hoja de ruta para ThinkingNetworks™: redes altamente evolucionadas y definidas por software, que de forma automática, organizan, optimizan, y determinan las respuestas a acontecimientos sin precedentes e imprevistos, casi como lo hace la mente humana.

La base de ThinkingNetworks es una capa de control inteligente, virtualizada a través de la cual los operadores pueden crear flujos de red elásticos para los servicios OTT (over-the-top), Nube, M2M (machine-to-machine) y de Mejor Esfuerzo (Best-Effort).

“Sabemos, por ejemplo, que nuestros clientes quieren proporcionar servicios de Políticas, Cargos (Charging) e Identidad, como servicios basados en la Nube. También quieren un entorno en el que puedan crear opciones ilimitadas para asociaciones y servicios con proveedores de aplicaciones OTT, anunciantes móviles y M2M y proveedores de servicios en la Nube”, señaló el director de tecnología de Tekelec, Doug Suriano.

Es por estas razones por lo que los proveedores de servicios evolucionarán a ThinkingNetworks a través de cuatro fases superpuestas:

Fase 1: la Nueva Red Diameter (New Diameter Network, NDN). Construir una NDN altamente escalable que orqueste las comunicaciones basadas en Diameter entre puertas de acceso (gateways), servidores de políticas, sistemas de cargos, bases de datos de los perfiles de los suscriptores y funciones de movilidad y de gestión de sesiones.

Es dentro de la NDN que la anatomía de ThinkingNetworks toma forma, a través de un trío formado por:

Fase 2: CloudXG™. La NDN se ejecuta en una plataforma informática en la Nube completamente virtualizada. Esta fase representa un cambio fundamental en la manera en que los operadores mejoran la escalabilidad y la flexibilidad de la red en términos de sesiones, transacciones y rendimiento. En CloudXG:

  • La Plataforma de la Nube (Cloud Platform) proporciona un “hypervisor” de virtualización común para los componentes de la NDN;
  • El Virtualizador de la Nube (Cloud Virtualizer) utiliza tecnologías de virtualización para agregar/quitar los recursos informáticos dinámicamente al pool de hardware disponible;
  • El Orquestador de la Nube (Cloud Orchestrator) proporciona una asignación dinámica de los recursos informáticos de la NDN, según sea necesario, y le dice al Virtualizador de la Nube y al Administrador de la Nube (Cloud Manager) que creen una instancia de recursos adicionales
  • El Gestor de Flujo de la Nube (Cloud Flow Manager) utiliza las tecnologías de Redes definidas por software (Software Defined Network, SDN) como OpenFlow para manipular, dinámicamente, los flujos de tráfico que entran o salen de la Nube.

La inteligencia , capacidad, y control escalable proporcionados en la fase de CloudXG permite a los operadores ampliar sus modelos de negocios más allá de los servicios de acceso.

Fase 3: MobileSocial™. Los operadores móviles pueden aprovechar la red y la inteligencia de los suscriptores para ofrecer publicidad valiosa, voluntaria y móvil, y otras ofertas personalizadas para la aplicación OTT y los proveedores de contenido. Esto allana el camino para que se conviertan en proveedores de estilo de vida digital. Los elementos importantes son:

  • El Repositorio Social Móvil (MobileSocial Repository, MSR), una base de datos de alto rendimiento basada en los últimos avances de la tecnología Big Data, así como un análisis avanzado para determinar los comportamientos, las normas, las preferencias y las conexiones sociales del abonado.
  • La Función de Gestión de la Aplicación OTT (OTT Application Management Function) que interactúa con el MSR, permitiendo servicios controlados por el operador o por terceros para recuperar de manera segura la información de inteligencia de los suscriptores a través de interfaces de aplicación abiertas y normalizadas.
  • La Puerta de Acceso de Políticas Móviles (Mobile Policy Gateway, MPG) que amplía la política directamente a los dispositivos, lo que permite a los operadores gestionar la selección de red inalámbrica y móvil en base al nivel, tipo de dispositivo, uso de aplicaciones o condiciones de la red de los suscriptores. También dispone de controles personalizados de aplicaciones para una mejor experiencia del cliente.
  • La Función de Detección de Tráfico (Traffic Detection Function) caracteriza a los flujos de los medios de comunicación para los servicios seleccionados de alto valor a un nivel mucho más granular que el que está disponible con la inspección profunda de paquetes (deep packet inspection, DPI) de hoy en día y las funciones de optimización de vídeos. Esto permite una personalización superior de los servicios basados en aplicaciones.

Fase 4: ThinkingNetworks. La evolución de la red finaliza el litigio entre inteligencia y la elasticidad de la red, optimizada para los servicios de estilo de vida digital. Los operadores pueden ajustar las redes a medida que se agrega el tiempo, los acontecimientos, y el contenido de una multitud de fuentes. Los elementos fundamentales son:

  • El Receptor de Eventos de Red (Network Event Listener), que ‘escucha’ e informa sobre los eventos en la red al Controlador de SDN dirigido por políticas. Los eventos pueden incluir congestión en la RAN, degradación en los tiempos de configuración de la sesión de datos, invocación excesiva de las políticas, sobrecargas de mensajes Diameter y requisitos de manejo especial de sesiones de datos de alto valor.
  • El Controlador de SDN Dirigido por Políticas (Policy-Directed SDN Controller) recibe informes o disparadores del receptor de eventos de red. Evalúa la situación y, en combinación con la inteligencia del MSR, toma decisiones utilizando un motor de políticas sofisticado y basado en normas. Define la nueva calidad de reglas de servicios en base a las condiciones de flujo IP y también puede gestionar, selectivamente, los flujos IP de alto valor asociados a las sesiones de interés de los suscriptores utilizando OpenFlow u otras normas.

“Hay un camino de transformación radical para los proveedores de servicios, y su impacto se hace sentir en casi todos los aspectos de la industria: los flujos de ingresos, los modelos de negocio y la evolución de la red. Tekelec ha presentado la visión de ThinkingNetworks para elevar el papel de los operadores móviles a proveedores de estilo de vida digital y como actores principales en la expansión del ecosistema social móvil”, manifestó Suriano.

“Las redes definidas por software presentan una de las oportunidades más interesantes y transformadoras de la historia de las telecomunicaciones para que los proveedores de servicios puedan rediseñar la forma en que prestan los servicios”, manifestó Graham Finnie, analista principal de Heavy Reading, “pero necesitan que los proveedores establezcan una hoja de ruta clara para avanzar, con tecnologías que les permitan anticiparse a los deseos de los suscriptores y colocarlos en el centro de la entrega de servicios innovadores y diferenciados”.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.

Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
