HILLSBORO, Ore. -- Radisys Corporation today introduced its FlowEngine TDE-1000 Intelligent Load Balancer, the first member in a family of traffic distribution platforms targeted squarely at enabling scalable software defined networks (SDN). The FlowEngine TDE-1000 is designed to accelerate new service introduction in a scalable SDN-enabled network, while significantly reducing network complexity and required investment. Targeted specifically for communications and content providers that want more control and flexibility in their network, the TDE-1000 is interoperable with SDN controllers, and provides unmatched flexibility, control and maximum efficiency.

The explosion of video, broadband mobile devices and the Internet of Things has led to millions of data flows traversing the packet network. Content and service providers are keen to understand, manage and monetize these broadband data flows. The service-aware TDE-1000 intelligently distributes data flows to only the Virtualized Network Function (VNF) resources applicable to each session’s processing requirements, such as video optimization, encryption or policy enforcement and does so at line-rate speeds.

Until now, service providers have managed the huge volume of IP packets by combining discrete load balancers, edge routers and ToR switches. However, the continued use of disparate components to manage data traffic has led to unnecessary complexity and costs. Radisys has pioneered an approach to stateful data plane load balancing with the TDE-1000, bringing together these capabilities plus novel features that address the specific needs of an SDN and NFV-based environment, all in a compact and cost effective product. The Radisys TDE-1000 consolidates multiple network functions into one unified traffic distribution platform, accelerating the cost effective introduction of dynamic per-subscriber services.

“Service providers are re-tooling their networks to include SDN and NFV technologies at a faster rate than expected in order to support higher throughput IP services,” said Brian Bronson, president and CEO, Radisys. “This next generation services infrastructure will need to scale to handle millions of subscribers creating hundreds of millions of data sessions or ‘flows’. Video, IoT and 4G/5G will create a new set of network bottlenecks unless data plane traffic is intelligently directed to the appropriate resources. Our FlowEngine TDE-1000, coupled with our highly respected software customization and professional services capabilities, optimizes SDN-controlled traffic distribution, allowing for near-immediate activation of new revenue-generating services.”
