Traffic Monitoring/Visibility

Problem Being Solved: Over & Underlay Traffic Filtering/Steering

  • Allows for highly customizable data capture and copy based on header and DPI matches
  • Automated/flexible  traffic steering capabilities to monitoring tools
  • Limited SPAN/monitor port capacity on network switches
  • Polling schemes don’t scale
  • Lack of network traffic/flow visibility usage trends
  • Lack of scale: need visibility into 1,000s of flows

Open Networking Components:

  • Open API and Controllers + SDN Tap application provides SPAN functionality on arbitrarily large number of switch ports + SFLOW
  • White box networks to aggregate SPAN ports

Gap: Shadow network.  Can’t monitor without big data network analytics, information visibility

  • Providing all information about network infrastructure plant

Benefits: Over & Underlay Traffic Monitoring, Steering

  • Business unit self service
  • CapEx/OpEx relief
  • Network/traffic/flow visibility
