OTTAWA, ON (Canada) – October 6, 2015 – Corsa Technology, the leader in performance SDN switching, today announced that it will demonstrate at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress 2015 in booth #71, how its new metering and QoS capabilities can dramatically improve SDN network architectures by delivering SDN hardware that can easily and quickly scale for very large network applications. Attendees will see firsthand how large data set transfers can be delivered quickly and without disruption to the existing traffic.
SDN & OpenFlow World Congress 2015
Swissôtel Düsseldorf, Germany
October 13-16, 2015
Metering and queuing allows networks to create bandwidth profiles by putting limits and guarantees on traffic with particular classes. With SDN, those limits are no longer fixed as part of a static topology and rigid hardware platform. Policy-aware provisioning can be dynamically pushed down to the flexible Corsa SDN hardware to make on-going adjustments to meters and queue assignments. The network can then make immediate, informed queuing and discard decisions under congestion. Real-time performance monitoring automatically returns meter statistics and is checked against policies such as SLAs.
At SDN & OpenFlow World Congress 2015, Corsa, along with partners will provide the following onsite demos:
- Large data set transfer with SDN metering and QoS (Quality of Service) (Booth# 71):
Corsa will demonstrate its performance SDN capability to classify and prioritize traffic in the presence of large data set transfers, often referred to as “elephant” flows, using Open SDN metering and Quality of Service (QoS). To that end, this will be demonstrated using OpenDaylight.
Demo Partners: Corsa and Spirent Communications
- Multi-Site Multi-Domain Data Center Capacity Management (Travetin Foyer Booth #83)
This proof-of-concept (PoC) demonstrates the ability of a network under Software-Defined Network (SDN) control to respond dynamically to Elephant Flows both on Packet Layer and Optical Layer. The demo context is Data Centre VM Migration that is unscheduled and needs to be done immediately.
Demo Partners: CENGN (Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks), BTI and Corsa
- Packet Layer use-case: The Controller senses congestion and signals the packet device to use low-priority links in conjunction with QoS to provide the Elephant Flow minimum bandwidth guarantee and Optical device remains status-quo.
- Optical layer use-case: Due to the absence of packet-layer resources, the controller redirects the Elephant flow to the lower priority ODU2 links being used.
- Benchmarking the SDN Switch (Booth #24)
This demonstration will provide visible proof that SDN can run at 100 Gig line rate. With circuits enforced, queueing works at congestion, millions of flows covering multi-million address spaces are added to the flow table.
Demo Partners: Spirent Communications and Corsa
- Atrium: An SDN-based Open Source BGP Peering Router (Booth #100)
Atrium is designed to help the networking industry as a whole more easily adopt open SDN by integrating established open source SDN software with some critical connecting pieces. The software elements run in either controllers or switches, communicating via the OpenFlow® protocol, and include plugin opportunities for other switching solutions to help foster an open ecosystem of interoperable, hardware-based OpenFlow® switches.
Demo Partners: ONF (sponsored by Open Source SDN), Corsa and others
