San Francisco, September 9 – 11
Qosmos Showcases Intelligent Service Chaining Demo with Wind River and Intel
The demo shows dynamically optimized service chaining, made possible by DPI software embedded directly in the SDN infrastructure.
Technically, a Qosmos SAM® DPI module integrated with the Intel® Open Network Platform Server Reference Design (Intel® ONP Server Reference Design) using Wind River software that analyses traffic in real time and conveys application information to a vSwitch which intelligently steers traffic to optimize the number and sequence (chain) of service functions.
The benefits for service providers include increased flexibility in the deployment of service (firewalls, load balancers, WAN optimization, etc.), the ability to create new types of customized subscriber plans, and significant CAPEX and OPEX savings.
Product developers using the Intel ONP Server Reference Design featuring Wind River software, including Wind River Linux and Open Virtualization, and Qosmos SAM are able to leverage comprehensive middleware software with integrated packet acceleration and DPI technologies.
Network intelligence in the form of DPI and related technologies is quickly becoming an essential functionality inside the infrastructure of new networks based on SDN and NFV
With the introduction of virtualization, network overlays, and orchestration, network operators struggle with service functions such as firewalls, load balancers, WAN optimization systems, and other value-added services (VAS). Services are typically implemented in a static chain leading to technical and organizational challenges involving significant modification to the network management. Service functions implemented in silos lead to higher OPEX due to duplicated functionalities (network data interpretation, security rules, application classification, etc.).

Qosmos SAM provides the detailed, real-time traffic understanding required for intelligent service chaining
Qosmos Service Aware Module (Qosmos SAM) technology, running on hypervisor-hosted platforms based on Intel® Xeon® processors, allows DPI functions to be performed locally and enables dynamic traffic steering according to Layer 7 policy and rules. As an example, the virtual switch can directly steer video traffic by bypassing a next-generation firewall virtual network function (VNF).
