Accelerating NFV Security with PCIe Systems based on Intel Xeon-D & FM10000
With scores of major wireless carriers now rolling out LTE service across the globe, they need ways to offer high-bandwidth services to their subscribers efficiently and effectively while fiercely guarding the security of their advanced 4G networks.
In this webinar, Artesyn will show how its MaxCore™ platform leverages the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cryptography instruction set of the Intel Xeon-D and the advanced switching and high speed interfaces of the Intel Ethernet Multi-host Controller FM10000 (formerly Red Rock Canyon) to provide a highly efficient and cost effective security gateway solution.
For example firewall performance of up to 600Gbps can be achieved by combining four 100GE smart IO cards based on FM10000 with 22 Intel Xeon-Ds populating the balance of MaxCore™’s 15 PCIe slots. The result is a system with 15x the density of a comparable rack mount server implementation. In addition, by using low power multicore processors, the system can cut energy consumption by up to 70%.

Innovation driven by cloud, NFV, IOT, video content and virtual reality is compelling the delivery of increasingly distributed computing options. These environments will need to support technical requirements such as latency, connectivity and power management while adhering to regulator factors such as HIPPA data security. Distributed computing will require a number of infrastructure form factors such as HCI, private cloud and embedded computing paired with a myriad of operational environments process such Nutanix, Azure and OpenStack. All these are delivered in diverse partnerships and business models.
In this presentation, we will discuss automation opportunities that allow all stakeholders to effectively deploy and monitor the underlying infrastructure while orchestrating and managing individual functions that make up the distributed computing services - all with minimal and often remote support staff.
Netrolix leverages artificial intelligence to analyze network data to improve throughput by making more intelligent routing decisions. AI-WAN combines Netrolix Software Defined Gateways (SDG) with the company’s Machine Learning controller technology that provides deep analysis of network routes to identify the least congested and fastest data path through the network.
The Software Defined Gateway (SDG) is a multifunction network appliance that can be deployed as a router, switch, firewall, or SD-WAN appliance.
This provides full SD-WAN capabilities with intelligent switching of data across IP, multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), virtual private LAN service (VPLS), and virtual private network (VPN) connections, or it can be deployed as a termination point for carrier services.
The Machine Learning controller platform analyzes real-time and historical information on network performance including data center locations, service provider tendencies, current congestion issues, time of day, and historical traffic patterns.
Lastly, the Security Shield enhances these capabilities through the creation of unique security profiles for each device, location, and network in an enterprise. The Machine Learning technology analyzes data from these devices to spot traffic anomalies that are consistent with malware or network attacks.

White boxes may be general purpose, low-cost and easy to commoditize, but they lack many OAM functions and connectivity options that cannot always be virtualized, yet are still required by operators. In this webinar, we will explain how to bridge these gaps by supplementing universal CPEs (uCPEs) with universal access, enhanced performance monitoring and diagnostics, legacy TDM service support, and 1588 timing synchronization. We will also share typical use cases based on real-live experience of tier 1 operators using white boxes for virtualized business services today.
Complexity of troubleshooting NFV stack is manifold because of multiple layers of telemetry data. With such large data, SME driven exploratory analysis can be time-consuming and is not scalable. Cognitive Troubleshooting Framework augments exploratory analysis, reduces the time taken to find needle out of haystack by applying AI (ML/DL) algorithms based on model arrived at and help understand the behavior of the overall system and identify bottleneck regions that need be optimized.

The binary choice of on-prem computing or shipping data and workloads to hyperscale cloud datacenters is now becoming an inhibitor to resource optimization, business innovation and compelling new use models. As a result, one area of intense focus of such innovation is on “edge computing”.
Edge computing is the placement of data center or network-class compute and storage resources away from centralized hubs and closer to the endpoint devices in order to improve service capabilities, optimize TCO, comply with data locality requirements, and reduce application latency.
This session will provide an overview of the market dynamics driving the growing interest in edge computing models and concepts. It will cover some of the critical use models and attributes likely to drive the transition and it will highlight some of the core technologies and providers that will help open and enable the deployment of IT resources dynamically when and where they are needed—from core to edge to endpoint.

The wide usage of Cloud Computing has hastened the convergence of Internet and Cloud Technologies. Increase in demand of ‘Everything-as-a-Service’ are creating tremendous pressure on conventional hardware based service gateways, that are finding it difficult to meet the demands of cloud scaling and convergence of services delivery. Additionally with the proliferation of OTT players, Telcos and DTH providers are feeling the heat of diminishing services revenues calling for solutions that could enable commercially viable service innovation and accelerate consumer adoption.
Increasing demand on service personalization and consistent multi-device experience is accelerating the demand on providers to seek ways to converge their disparate Access networks to meet this demand while staying profitable. This is only possible through extensive multi-dimension insight into the customers network and the ability to dynamically program the network as per user experience. In this webinar, we intend to share a few key factors that we believe could positively influence this seamless digital transformation like :
· How effectively can access/edge convergence help in orchestrating service delivery and creating uniform user experience
· How can Telcos and OTTs co exist without impacting their revenue plans
· How can DTH providers who are also ISPs make use of edge convergence and attain best of both worlds
· How could 5G be really about converged, interworking networks than today’s “little bigger 4G"
· How could Network slicing be made more realistic for MSOs and VNOs
· How could today’s pseudo SD-WAN deployments by Telcos be made more realistic
· How we make use of Intel’s NEV stack to implement edge convergence gateway.

Today, with less expensive and more powerful processing power and bandwidth, plus the emergence of unsecure and unsupervised IOT devices, attackers can launch potent DDoS attacks at much lower cost. As a result, not only the “big players” (such as banking, trade platforms, subscription services and social media) are in danger of being attacked. The ease of launching a DDoS attack has put every business, no matter how large or small, in the risk zone. Denial of service attacks strike at the very heart of client-business interaction: the channel of communication. Businesses relying on IP telephony and VOIP services are just as much exposed to the threat as the ones delivering their services via the web.
With the growing number of DoS attacks launched against business infrastructure every year, no business can afford to pass on having an efficient solution to detect these attacks and mitigate their harmful effects. While large companies can afford to deploy high cost purpose-built network security equipment, smaller businesses can’t always justify that kind of investment. For them, cost, ease of deployment and flexibility are major decision factors in choosing a security solution.
In this webinar, we will discuss how Northforge can address small business needs for cost-efficient, high performance and flexible VOIP DDoS protection solutions. We will demonstrate how, using Intel technologies, it’s possible to achieve real time threat detection and reporting using minimal customer-provided computational resources and without additional equipment investments.
