The need to manage the interaction between network infrastructure resources and constantly changing application workloads to maintain data center performance has never been more important. Within the XPliant software defined networking framework, Packet Trakker enables comprehensive data centre infrastructure performance management. Networks built with XPliant switches can now deploy Packet Trakker to provide the following operational benefits:
Packet Trakker integrates with Network Operating Systems (NOS) and analytics engines, to deliver a comprehensive set of telemetry features that monitor network status in real-time and at scale. This technology assists data centre network operators in dynamic remediation operations that continuously improve network efficiency and application quality of experience. Furthermore, the XPliant programmable switch architecture is future proofed for the continuously evolving world of Software-Defined Networking.
"I am pleased with the amount of positive feedback we continue to receive from customers utilizing Packet Trakker hardware acceleration to monitor networks more closely and accurately than legacy solutions", stated Eric Hayes, VP/GM Switching Platform Group at Cavium. "I am excited to see how the flexibility of the XPliant Packet Architecture will further innovation of real-time granular telemetry in order to reliably deploy new network services."
"Packet Trakker is an intriguing powerful technology to address some of the critical challenges in today's networks", stated Gavin Cato, Senior Vice President for Networking Development Engineering at Dell EMC. "Packet Trakker deployed on Dell EMC switches such as the S5148-ON has the ability to provide deeper insights into device resources and advance network analytics for better network operations."
"Packet Trakker programmable telemetry accelerates development of new innovative solutions for mobile network quality analysis and real-time diagnostics", stated Dr. Kang-Won Lee, SVP, Head of Software R&D Center, SK Telecom. "We believe it significantly improves the network visibility that leads to improvements of reliability, performance and utilization efficiency."
"Packet Trakker addresses some of the most critical challenges operators face today in managing their networks", stated Seamus Crehan, president of Crehan Research. Detailed real-time visibility and network remediation based on XPliant programmable telemetry capabilities provide key tools for automated self-healing solutions, which is the next step to increasing network uptime and lowering OpEx."
The XPliant Packet Trakker is available now to customers and partners.
