Allot Traffic Detection Function
Traffic Detection Function (TDF) enables cost savings
Broadband carriers and service providers look to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to lower costs and increase revenue from the network services they offer. Our virtual TDF (vTDF) solution, carrier deployment know-how, and evolutionary approach to NFV advance them toward these goals. As part of our NFV technology landscape, our vTDF provides essential, virtualized functions that make it easier for carriers to create, deliver and monetize their data services.
vTDF identifies traffic and enables real-time charging actions
Similar to physical counterparts, our virtual platforms connect and coordinate the data and control planes for delivering services. They employ our superior technology to identify subscriber-application traffic, and enable the application of granular policy enforcement and charging actions to traffic flows in real time. Typical enforcement actions include application aware traffic management, congestion control, online/offline charging, and traffic steering to added-value services.
vTDF on HP OpenNFV Platform
Allot is an active participant in the HP OpenNFV Partner Program where we are leveraging the HP OpenNFV platform to offer a virtual Traffic Detection Function (vTDF) and a host of pre-integrated services to service providers and enterprises. To date, Allot and HP have verified interoperability of security services, with more to come. This integration demonstrates Allot’s commitment to enabling fast –time-to-market and reduced costs for the deployment and delivery of revenue-generating services in virtualized cloud environments with leading NFV innovators like Hewlett-Packard.
vTDF offers a range of benefits
- Accelerates time to market by shortening the procure-design-integrate-deploy cycle
- Lowers CAPEX and OPEX by reducing dependence on hardware deployed at specific points in the network, the need for hardware redundancy and rack space, and the need for skilled manpower for hardware management and maintenance
- Increases revenues by making it easier to implement complex new use cases such as application-based charging and service chaining
