SOFTWARE DEFINING NETWORKING
Mphasis SDN solutions enhance scalability, agility, and performance
Owing to cloud computing, the type and number of applications running on traditional network infrastructure has gone up manifold. Networks which were originally designed for client server computation architecture presently face the complexity and dynamic nature of a virtualized computation environment.
A virtualized and dynamic service delivery environment demands networks that are agile, highly scalable, and programmable. However, today’s networks are rigid and are unable to meet the provisioning speeds needed to fulfill business requirements. With IT budgets already stretched thin, businesses need a solution that improves application performance without skyrocketing equipment costs. Mphasis’ Software Defined Networking (SDN) is that solution.
We help enterprises take advantage of network virtualization by making networks programmable and enabling flexible network usage. By introducing a vendor-agnostic integration layer, we break the traditional restrictive network environment and achieve substantial cost savings in the process.
With Mphasis SDN framework, network rollout speeds will no longer lag server and storage provisioning, as we shift the control logic from a physical to a virtualized cloud environment. The solution consolidates intelligence in a software-based control plane to act as an interface between application and network layers.
Centralized traffic engineering provides a global view of the supply and demand of network resources. Managing end-to-end paths in this global view results in high utilization of the links.
Faster Failure Handling
Failures, whether link, node, or otherwise, are handled much faster. Furthermore, systems converge more rapidly toward optimized and predictable behavior.
Agility and Flexibility
New applications, services, and infrastructure are rapidly deployed to quickly meet changing business goals and objectives.
Decoupling of the control plane from the forwarding/data plane enables hitless software upgrades without packet loss or capacity degradation.
Implementation of several automation functions through APIs.
A clean interface between the control and data plane facilitates innovation on the control and data plane, independently of each other.
