Backed by global Tier 1 operators, today's state-of-the-art virtual Evolved Packet Core technology offers performance close enough to the classic hardware-based products. Arguably, a software-based mobile core levels the playing field with bigger operators because it puts brand-name EPC products and features within reach of smaller operators.
The adoption of LTE (Long-Term Evolution) mobile technology has grown significantly in the past 3 years bringing with it many advantages to subscribers and operators. There are also inherit cyber threats and other risks in the LTE technology that should be considered by operators. This paper presents an overview of the risks and countermeasures that operators should consider when assessing the security requirement for their radio access networks.
The relentless pace of innovation is driving developers and service providers to redefine how they bring applications and services to users. Users’ demand for new applications is forcing a transformation away from limited function, tightly integrated and proprietary solutions toward a more fluid, programmable, adaptable service delivery environment.
The FWA-6522C is Advantech’s new concept of ultra high-end network platform to boost performance of applications migrating to 100GbE. The FWA-6522C makes the most of its four integrated Intel® Xeon® processors and its 400 Gbps of I/O by optimizing packet delivery from the network ports into the CPU sockets and into the virtual machines. This paper describes this innovative platform architecture and shows some applications that can leverage the ultra high-end FWA-6522C appliance.
This product brief describes the huge potential of Advantech’s NFV Elasticity initiative and the network platforms that make it possible.
Advantech and Netronome have collaborated to provide a proof-of-concept SDN gateway. The resulting L2-L7 gateway can simultaneously host high-performance OpenFlow switching and multiple VNF applications, all under SDN-OpenFlow control. Demonstrated performance gains are presented here.
This white paper will consider the common-ground facets of IP network transformation to provide a complete view of the scope of NFV's impact on CSP network transformation programs. The paper first documents the phases of IP network transformation, including the latest virtualization-driven phase; and then addresses the key business and technological impacts of virtualized transformation on service delivery, network design and monitoring, and network operations.
