Hyperscale DDoS Offload to SmartNICs: A Powerful 5G Security Solution

Presented by

Tom Atkins, Product Mktg Mgr, F5; Ed O’Connell, Sr. Product Mktg Mgr, F5; Chuck Tato, Dir. of Wireline & NFV Biz Div., Intel

About this talk

As service providers shift to cloud/NFV architectures to roll out 5G and edge compute infrastructure, new generations of hyperscale DDoS threats will emerge. DDoS attacks are increasing in size, complexity and severity to further exploit new cloud-based technological shifts, and service providers demand virtual security solutions to offer equally flexible and robust defenses. Leveraging Intel’s FPGA PAC N3000 and F5's extensive DDoS and FPGA expertise, F5's BIG-IP VE for SmartNICs solution is capable of withstanding DDoS attacks up to 300 times greater in magnitude than a comparable software-only solution, ensuring cloud networks are adequately protected against the next generation of DDoS threats. In this webinar you will learn: - How DDoS attacks might evolve in a 5G world - What SmartNICs are, and how they can be utilized across the network - How SmartNICs are able to augment F5’s virtual DDoS solution to consistently mitigate a wide variety of complex DDoS attacks over 30Gbps in magnitude
