Radware Unveils NFV, SDN Mobile Solutions for Security, Service Chaining and More

By Paula Bernier February 24, 2014

Radware took the wraps off three new solutions that leverage network functions virtualization and software-defined networking to enable LTE mobile network operators to more effectively address evolving load balancing, security, service chaining, and traffic steering requirements.

The new Alteon NFV solution provides various layer 4-7 services, including GiLAN load balancing, steering, and service chaining. Radware is also promoting its DefenseFlow solution, an SDN offering addressing distributed denial of service threats. This control-plane application does so by employing a multi-layer, real-time defense against application and network DoS attacks and advanced persistent threats in mobile networks. The third product is called SteerFlow. This is also a control-plane application, but it enables GiLAN data-plane steering and service chaining at up to 1TB.

The company is showing the three new solutions this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. (Speaking of industry events, if you’re planning your travel schedule for later this year and are interested in NFV and SDN solutions, consider attending Software Telco Congress – The NFV Event from Aug. 11-14 at The Rio – Las Vegas.)

Radware has been an active participant in the NFV and SDN arenas. As NFVZone reported in August, Radware has been a contributor to the OpenDaylight Project, a community-led open source framework aimed at accelerating adoption and fostering innovation related to the software-defined network. The company contributed to the group its Defense4All distributed denial-of-service protection application, which is a toolset to detect and address DDoS attacks.

And in October, Radware joined HP’s SDN ecosystem in an effort to accelerate its software-defined networking strategy. The ecosystem is a developer network HP created to help foster development of applications. As an HP registered partner, Radware is working on SDN-based applications to run on HP’s controller. Radware is applying its DefenseFlow and ElasticScale applications to that controller. ElasticScale optimizes network services via virtual appliance provisioning, traffic distribution across virtual appliances and acceleration of virtual appliance I/O.
