Solving SDN and NFV Management Challenges Through Real-Time Insight

Napatech Accelerators Enable In-Depth Analysis of Network Traffic from 1 to 100G

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) enter into the commercialization phase, the general consensus in the industry is that the move to a pure software model will enable new levels of service agility that traditional networks have never been able to achieve. In support of this rapid growth, Napatech's recent webinar, "Network Management and Security Requirements for SDN/NFV Networks," addressed the challenge of supporting SDN/ NFV requirements in the 100G era through real-time network insight into IP traffic.

Detailing the shortcomings of standard Ethernet ports, industry experts spoke on how analysis acceleration hardware is needed to address the challenges in managing these environments.

  • Market research substantiates challengesRnRMarketResearch reports that in spite of predictions of the substantial growth in the SDN market, hardware is still expected to play a significant role in overall network infrastructure. The firm also reported that software-defined networks offer enormous opportunities in the coming years, predicting that in 2018-2019, approximately 35-40 percent of overall network spending will be on SDN.
  • Real-time analysis essential to performance – Insight into network and service usage provides the intelligence for SDN controllers and NFV management to act. This analysis can be used to reroute traffic, increase bandwidth in a certain area, change service parameters or even offer a new service or upgrade.
    • By using Napatech accelerators in commercial off-the-shelf servers, network equipment manufacturers can build appliances that provide intelligent analysis.
    • Products range from 1 to 100 Gbps, enabling analysis of applications and services through guaranteed data delivery and nanosecond time-stamping resolution.
    • Utilizing this technology, Napatech partners such as Procera, Qosmos and ipoque provide deep packet inspection (DPI) that enables real-time insight into both network and service performance, even for over-the-top services.

Dan Joe Barry, vice president of marketing, Napatech, said:
"Network equipment manufacturers must find a way to fulfill the SDN/NFV promise of agility and flexibility. Real-time insight is the key to network and service usage. Triggers can be built in to enhance the capabilities of addressing management and security issues in these environments, as well assuring quality of experience."
