Network Packet Generator Taps Application in SDDC Software Defined
SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) is a technology that virtualizes and softwares all physical and
hardware resources of Data Center.
SDDC relies on virtualization and cloud computing technologies. The
goal of SDDC is to virtualize all physical resources in the data
center. Through virtualization technologies, it builds a resource
pool composed of virtual resources, including not only server
virtualization, but also storage virtualization and network
virtualization.It can not only simplify the difficulty of server
change, storage change and network configuration, but also make the
management and configuration of server, storage and network have
repeatability and sustainability.
SDDC enables hardware resources to be configured and scheduled
through software, increasing flexibility and agility, with the
significant advantage of significantly reducing data center costs.
Management is made easier by the centralized software management
provided by SDDC. At the same time, SDDC allows software to manage
the network and make the network part of the data center.
Proprietary network can greatly improve the efficiency of hardware,
so the importance of software cannot be underestimated.
Software Defined Data Center will become a new direction and trend
of data center evolution.
SDN: Software Defined Network, which is a revolutionary change that solves some of the inevitable
problems in traditional networks, including lack of flexibility,
slow response to demand changes, inability to virtualize the
network, and high costs.Under the current network architecture,
network operators and enterprises cannot provide new services
quickly because they have to wait for equipment providers and
standardization organizations to agree and integrate new functions
into a proprietary operating environment.This is obviously a long
wait, and perhaps by the time the existing network actually has
this new capability, the market will have changed a lot.
SDN Benefits as follows:
No.1 - SDN provides more flexibility for network use, control and
how to generate revenue.
No.2 - SDN speeds up the introduction of new services.Network
operators can deploy related features through controlled software,
rather than waiting for a device provider to add a solution to its
No.3 - SDN reduces the operation cost and error rate of the
network, because it realizes the automatic deployment and operation
and maintenance fault diagnosis of the network and reduces the
manual intervention of the network.
No.4 - SDN helps to realize the virtualization of the network, thus
realizing the integration of computing and storage resources of the
network, and finally enabling the control and management of the
entire network to be realized through the combination of some
simple software tools.
No.5 - SDN makes the network and all IT systems better oriented to
What's the Network Packet Broker and Network Taps to do?
With the acceleration of carrier broadband construction and the
rapid development of 3G, 4G, and 5G networks, and with the
popularity and development of big data and cloud computing
technologies, data traffic is growing, and the bandwidth
requirements for backbone networks and core networks are
increasing. Since 2013, the major operators have begun to gradually
upgrade the backbone network. The core backbone network
transmission link media starts to be expanded from 10GPOS and
40GPOS links to 100G Ethernet links. It will inevitably lead to the
continuous updating of big data collection and analysis technology.
In the face of 100GE link environment with high bandwidth capacity,
how to effectively meet the requirements of various national
security, network security monitoring, operator intelligent
pipeline DPI data collection and analysis will become a hot spot in
the field of data acquisition and analysis.
Chengdu Shuwei Communication is following the development direction
of the Internet and develop the MATRIX-TCA-CG Traffic
Acquisition(Traffic Capture) Visibility System, and dedicated to
the traffic collection and visual analysis application requirements
on 1GE, 10GE, 10G/40G POS, 40GE and 100GE links. The MATRIX-TCA-CG
integrates free-steering output functions such as network flow
collection/acquisition, aggregation, filtering,
forwarding/distribution, and load balancing and provides an
efficient solution for the flow analysis.
Matrix-TCA-CG is a network data visualization control device for
high density and large flow of 10G/40G/100G.
Matrix-TCA-CG is specially designed for the data collection of 10GE
40GE and 100GE links distributed intensively in operators mobile
Internet export, IDC export, provincial network and backbone.
Based on ATCA standard architecture, MATRIX-TCA-CG has high
carrier-level reliability and strong expansibility which can
smoothly configure the functional board CARDS to cope with port
demand scenarios of various specifications and sizes.
SDN Network Packet Broker Applications:
After sorting out the main participating entities of the network,
the application scenarios of SDN basically focus on telecom
operators, government and enterprise customers, data center service
providers and Internet companies.The application scenarios of SDN
mainly focus on: data center network, interconnection between data
centers, government-enterprise network, telecom operator network,
and business deployment of Internet companies.
Scenario 1: application of SDN in data center network
Scenario 2: application of SDN in data center interconnection
Scenario 3: application of SDN in government-enterprise network
Scenario 4: application of SDN in telecom operator network
Scenario 5: application of SDN in the service deployment of
