By installing B4N SwitchOS on X86 network appliance, Customers turn ordinary x86 device into feature-rich SDN Router. By using with B4N Controller, which delivers support of QoS, BGP, Traffic Engineering, Fast Failover and many other features, this appliance with B4N SwitchOS installed can be implemented as the Client Edge, Transit or Service Edge Router at Metro Ethernet or Mobile Backhaul Networks.
For integration with legacy networks and to enable IP routing in SDN domain, Brain4Net provdes so-caled “Distributed Routing” functionality: Routing MP-BGP component that helps CSP migrate Customers to SDN Infrastructure without any service degradation tightly and to provide L3 functionality in SDN domain.
This approach enables CSPs to bring an agility to Metro Ethernet Networks and improve service deployment times by implementing carrier-grade Software Defined Networking, while obviating the need of “rip-and-replace”.
Flexible X86 architecture enables network administrators to rapidly implement new technologies and features by installing new applications at B4N SwitchOS and SDN Controller levels without upgrading hardware, thus enable to “break” HW & SW lifecycles. Moreover, the solution enables Communications Service Provider to simplify network management, service provisioning and reduce hardware costs.
