Saisei for Service Provider
Our innovative software provides unprecedented levels of network visibility and control through patented flow management technology.
A software based solution that runs on standard commercial off-the-shelf hardware, Saisei’s unique capabilities are delivered as an NFV network function, helping our customers to reduce CapEx, simplify operations & increase service agility.
Saisei elegantly combines next-generation traffic management, visibility and reporting, with policy creation and enforcement functions in a single software appliance. Enabled by a patented flow control engine, Saisei provides fine-grained visibility and control of every network flow in real time.
Next-Generation Traffic Management
Our patented technology enables every flow in the network to be monitored and controlled independently and in real time. By dynamically ensuring the QoS of every flow, Saisei delivers unprecedented link utilization – up to 95% – without congestion symptoms.
Controlling every flow on the network, our software doesn’t have to use traditional traffic management queuing mechanisms, so increased link utilization can be achieved without sacrificing latency.
Guaranteeing the QoS of every flow means every subscriber and application gets a fair bandwidth share within each service tier. Saisei’s unique ability to equalize traffic among users, hosts or service classes means providers can offer a better service to customers, preventing a minority of power users from impacting the QoE for entire service classes.
All of which means networks work harder to facilitate the minimized CapEx required to meet rising bandwidth demands.
Visibility & Reporting
You can’t control what you can’t see. Saisei acts as a sensor in your network to provide 100% visibility into every flow. The flow manager builds a rich database of information on each flow including application, application metadata, user, GeoIP, and custom fields.
Unlike traditional DPI or visibility solutions, Saisei monitors every flow in real-time instead of sampling and post-processing the data.
Our software visualizes the information it collects in real time via a customizable GUI dashboard that turns flow information into network intelligence.
That extensive flow data set can then be exported to an external flow collector or analytics platform of your choice via an open IPFIX interface. In this scenario, the Saisei flow manager map reduces the flow information to limit the amount of data that needs to be exported and stored.
Policy Creation and Enforcement
The Saisei flow manager provides a simple platform for policy creation through our customizable GUI. Policies can be created based on a rich database of flow information. Whether you want to prioritize certain application traffic over others, block access to a foreign country, or set complex subscriber policies for multiple service tiers – achieving your goal is just a few clicks away.
Imagine the possibilities for differentiation through new application-aware services. With Saisei deployed in your network, we envision new services where customers have the ability to change policy on their network access links in real time.
Saisei is also a powerful tool to help you adjust to changing net neutrality regulations. Whether it’s the ability to prioritize one service, user, application or host over another, or the desire to ensure fair usage for everyone on the network, Saisei is equally effective and provides insurance against the changing regulatory landscape.
Saisei delivers a unique combination of capabilities via a high-performance open architecture that ensures it can be easily integrated into virtually any legacy or next-generation network. Designed to run on standard COTS hardware in either bare metal or virtualized environments, and based on an open REST API, Saisei achieves virtually limitless scale while also setting new standards for cost-effectiveness versus traditional hardware-based solutions.
