Asterfusion® PX-T switch contains a P4 programmable switching ASIC and P4-optimized operating software. It can identify various tunneling packet formats and support the fine-grain flow load-balancing based on the 5-tupples of inner-tunnel IP packet header. Compared with other solutions such as FPGAs and MIPS, Asterfusion® PX-T switch offers a 10 times higher cost/performance ratio.
Asterfusion® CX-T switches can provide accurate and comprehensive real-time INT and vINT (virtual INT – INT for Virtual Overlay Networks) telemetry data. Through detailed analysis of the INT/vINT data, cloud data center network can now carry out auto-operation, auto-repairment, real-time QoS optimization, etc. Furthermore, INT/vINT data analysis on mission-critical business applications would create even higher impacts on the bottom line, thus helping customers to build-up efficient, resilient, and profitable cloud data center intelligent network operations.
The control plane software of Asterfusion® CX-T switches, AsterNOS, is based on open source SONiC software platform. It can support standard container architecture and Redis in-memory database mechanism, allowing on-demand DevOps CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous deployments) all within standard Linux development environment; Through the REST API invoked by the cloud data center management platform, AsterNOS would also allow cloud data center administrators to take full advantages of all the build-in network capabilities within the Asterfusion® CX-T switches.
Asterfusion® PX-T switch can decode and track identification of signaling protocols running at each interface of mobile core networks; extract signaling packets, re-construct complete sessions and then ensure the load-balancing delivery consistency of the entire session messages to back-end analytical systems; Asterfusion® PX-T Switches can also support correlation marking between signaling-plane traffic and the associated user-plane traffic, thus allowing for intelligent filtering and distribution of correlated traffic.
Asterfusion® PX-T switch supports persistent flow load balancing mechanism. When a link in the load balancing group fails, this mechanism will just redirect the traffic on the failed link onto other links and ensure that the traffic on the original normal link will not be affected, and thus minimizing the impact of the failure.
