Napatech Applies Real-Time Insight to SDN and NFV

Latest Whitepaper Addresses Rapid Growth in OTT Data Traffic for Telecom Carriers

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech, the world's leading supplier of network analysis adapters, today released the latest whitepaper in its "Time to ReThink" series, which addresses the rapid growth in data volume and complexity facing network equipment manufacturers today. In "Time to ReThink SDN and NFV," Napatech focuses on how real-time insight can be implemented in conjunction with software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) in order to assure quality of experience (QoE) and security in telecom networks.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • SDN and NFV's promise of agility and flexibility must be complemented by the real-time capability to adapt.
  • Real-time insight into network and service usage provides the intelligence for SDN controllers and NFV management to act. This can be to reroute traffic, increase bandwidth in a certain area, change service parameters or even offer a new service or upgrade.
  • Real-time insight can be used to assure QoE and security that in turn can be sold as services to over-the-top (OTT) service providers.
  • Integrating this capability into SDN and NFV builds agility and responsiveness into carrier organizations. 
  • Napatech enables real-time analysis of applications and services used on mobile networks through guaranteed data delivery and nanosecond time-stamping resolution.

SUPPORTING QUOTE:
Henrik Brill Jensen, CEO, Napatech, said:
"The technology for implementing real-time insight to manage SDN and NFV already exists. It is not a technical hurdle, but involves rethinking the role of carriers. A modern carrier needs to partner with a growing ecosystem of OTT players to ensure that subscribers are getting what they want, the way they want it. Napatech enables the real-time insight to make this possible, while also reducing time-to-market and risk."

In very short order, the term "Blockchain" has lost an incredible amount of meaning. With too many jumping on the bandwagon, the market is inundated with projects and use cases that miss the real potential of the technology. We have to begin removing Blockchain from the conversation and ground ourselves in the motivating principles of the technology itself; whether it is consumer privacy, data ownership, trust or even participation in the global economy, the world is faced with serious problems that this technology could ultimately help us in at least partially solving. But if we do not unpack what is real and what is not, we can lose sight of the potential. In this presentation, John Bates-who leads data science, machine learning and AI in the Adobe Analytics business unit-will present his 4-prong model of the general areas where Blockchain can have a real impact and the specific use...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators.
