DemoFriday Video: Accedian WAN Performance Monitoring Demo – Dynamic, SDN Performance Monitoring
In this Accedian WAN Performance Monitoring Demo, Accedian Networks takes us through an interactive journey on how to achieve optimized performance monitoring in software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) environments. Accedian Networks‘ Vice President of Solutions and Development Scott Sumner teamed up with Solutions Manager Greg Spear to demonstrate how an instrumentation layer can easily be implemented over SDN and hybrid networks.
Performance monitoring for wide area networks (WAN) is a subject Accedian has studied and tested for many years. The networking expert explains how we can fully benefit from SDN capabilities, and by the same token, preserve and build on our existing networks. Because the ‘basic network state’ is not enough, the trick is to bring functions closer to each other and use virtualized platforms as well as virtualize the customer edge.
This Accedian WAN Performance Monitoring Demo on performance monitoring is based on a simple premise: Radically efficient instrumentation can be achieved through SDN. The demo portion of this presentation streams a live video from Accedian’s’ virtualization lab and documents how companies are moving towards total quality-of-service (QoS) and QoE. A virtual tour comparing physical virtualization to virtual instrumentation is also provided. Needless to say, this DemoFriday on performance monitoring is the ultimate learning tool on how to apply SDN and NFV principles through a network-wide instrumentation layer.
Accedian Networks VCX is also introduced during this special DemoFriday. The story of the genesis of the VCX and the meticulous process the company went through to build this solution are expanded upon in the presentation. Without going into too much detail, the important parts of a switch or router (FPGA, time stamp, and more), were transferred to a nano, which is in turn was plugged into the network.
