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."

DevOps is a world surrounded by information, starting from a single commit and ending in roll out to production. In this talk, I'll introduce you to the world of Taboola DevOps data collection, to better understand what goes on under the hood. The system we've developed in-house helps us collect and analyse the entire DevOps process from the very first commit all the way to production. It provides us a full clear view with a drill-down toolset that helps keep us away from the dark side. Our KPI's moved from being abstracted ideas to data driven goals, which we can measure and act upon. We're living in a data driven world when all business components are based on our clients action and reaction, why not doing the same thing within our DevOps eco-system?
