New Line of SDN and NFV Based Product Offering Enables Mobile Operator Networks to Deliver and Control Mobile Data and Applications in a Programmable, More Flexible and Cost Effective GiLAN

MAHWAH, N.J. – Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced a next-generation software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) solution strategy for mobile carriers and service providers. Radware's new solution strategy leverages SDN and NFV to pioneer an integrated security and application delivery framework that seamlessly enables comprehensive cyber defense and service delivery as network-wide native services.

Long Term Evolution (LTE) continues to gain momentum, exhibiting unprecedented mobile traffic demand and setting more stringent cost-effectiveness requirements. As competition rises with the growth of the mobile market place, mobile operators must adopt next-generation technologies to keep up with the demands of an evolving network. Through Radware's new SDN and NFV solution strategy, mobile operators can now address this challenge head on by building smarter, programmable and more flexible GiLAN networks through SDN and NFV based solutions.

"Though many IT pros are inclined to stand these two concepts up against each other, as in SDN vs. NFV, these two revolutionary networking developments don't represent an either-or proposition. In fact, it instead looks very much like a both-and deal -- as in, 'both SDN and NFV are likely to find a place in modern enterprise networks and carrier infrastructures,'" says Ed Tittel, technology writer in a recent article for CIO.

Radware's next-generation product line for mobile carriers and service providers includes new control-plane and data-planes solutions designed to be integrated within the upcoming SDN ecosystems --includes:--

--  DefenseFlow™ -- As the industry's first SDN DDoS offering, DefenseFlow is a unique cyber security control-plane application that enables comprehensive multi-layer, real-time defense against application and network DoS attacks and mobile APTs (advanced persistent threats)

--  Alteon® NFV -- A fully automated, fully NFV-compliant, high performance ADC VNFC that delivers a breadth of layer 4-7 services such as GiLAN load-balancing, steering, service-chaining and more

--  SteerFlow -- A service--delivery control-plane application that enables GiLAN data-plane steering and service-chaining scalable up to 1TB

As leader in the SDN industry, Radware actively contributes to open source and standards including Open Networking Foundation, OpenDaylight and OpenStack, in addition to broad partnerships with Cisco, HP, NEC, IBM, Mellanox and more.

"Mobile carriers and service providers can greatly benefit from Radware's deep working relationships with the SDN and NFV ecosystems as the company has played an integral role in defining standards and technologies in this area from the ground up," said David Aviv, vice president of Advanced Services. "Through Radware's new solutions strategy, mobile operators can seamlessly integrate applications to automate virtual data center workflows, communicate with SDN controllers, scale on by leveraging the NFV infrastructure, and much more."
