Powering Intelligent Network Services with Real-Time Visibility, Analytics and Automation

Cloud-native applications and services are highly dynamic and distributed across hyperscale, software-driven, virtualized application and network infrastructure. Continuously shifting traffic flows and bandwidth demands are placing a premium on the ability of service providers and webscalers to respond rapidly to changing network conditions, driving an urgent need for intelligent network automation to overcome serious challenges related to service assurance, end user quality-of-experience and security.

Four key building blocks power intelligent network services:

  • A more capable data plane and highly instrumented network fabric
  • A simplified and programmable control plane
  • Unified, multi-domain, multi-layer network topology visibility
  • Big data analytics to derive real-time intelligence from a wealth of data sources
