Areas of Expertise

 

SDN & NFV

Automate and virtualize networks by combining Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). Together, they can optimize costs and enhance security.

SDN & NFV and their benefits

NFV

Layers 4-7
Optimizing deployment of network functions e.g.edge authentication, load balancers, firewalls, WAN controllers

 

SDN

Layers 2-3
Optimizing network infrastructure, e.g.ethernet
switches, routers, wireless access points

Enablement of innovation and new services

Scalability – scale up effortlessly by adding virtualized components
Stability – leverage the cloud and make the network nearly impossible to overload
Cost effeciency – optimize the costs of expanding a network as it’s based on virtual machines as well as OPEX costs of deploying and maintaining services in the network
Security – keep your network easily updated and supervised

Tungsten Fabric

The problem of choosing a mature SDN controller is one of the key limitations that stand in the way of implementing SDN. Tungsten Fabric (previously OpenContrail) is an open-source network virtualization solution for providing connectivity and security for virtual, containerized or bare-metal workloads. It stands out among the most mature solutions.

CodiLime is one of the main developers of Tungsten Fabric. We work to ensure that it is stable, reliable and flexible enough to be integrated with various client stacks and multicloud.

How we can help with Tungsten Fabric
