Radisys Introduces the FlowEngine TDE-2000, Delivering a Compact, High-performance SDN and NFV Platform for Service Providers and Data Cente

February 23, 2017

News Highlights

  • Radisys’ FlowEngine™ TDE-2000 delivers industry-leading density with up to 2 Tbps L2/L3 and 600 Gbps of advanced packet processing to support future traffic growth driven by SDN, NFV, 5G and IoT applications.
  • The traffic distribution platform is designed with intelligent packet flow classification capabilities for service-aware traffic management for SDN/NFV architectures that scales, eliminating network bottlenecks and accelerating the introduction of new services and revenues.
  • New 1RU platform design delivers maximum flexibility for deployment in multiple environments, including as an NFVI solution in Radisys’ DCEngine™ platform.

HILLSBORO, OR, – February 23, 2017Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, today announced a robust solution to deploy Software-defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) with the delivery of its FlowEngine™ TDE-2000. The FlowEngine TDE-2000 is an advanced high-performance carrier-grade open network switch, with unique packet flow classification and security features designed to reduce network complexity and accelerate new SDN, NFV, 5G and IoT service introductions, while delivering CapEx and OpEx savings.     

The FlowEngine TDE-2000 platform delivers robust Layer 2 through 5 traffic classification and distribution with very high throughput and low latency. FlowEngine TDE-2000 is the new flagship offering in Radisys’ FlowEngine TDE portfolio, leveraging programmable network processors which makes it easy to add new features moving forward. FlowEngine TDE-2000 is designed to open standards, and brings together switching, load balancing, security and routing functionality under open policy control. The FlowEngine TDE-2000 also enables Service Function Chaining (SFC) functionality for distribution of traffic flows through a programmable sequence of virtualized network functions (VNFs).

“As service providers migrate from legacy networks to new virtualized telco data centers, they require a programmable, flexible and scalable traffic distribution platform that meets price/performance targets,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president, FlowEngine and DCEngine, Radisys. “Our FlowEngine TDE-2000 delivers the highest density in the market in a 1RU platform and is readily deployable in multiple architectures as a standalone switch, Leaf/ToR, or Spine/EOR switching fabrics. The FlowEngine TDE-2000 also can be deployed as an NFVI solution in our DCEngine platform. The powerful combination of the TDE-2000 pre-integrated with our updated FlowEngine software enables our customers to accelerate their SDN and NFV deployments.”

“When Radisys launched its FlowEngine TDE portfolio, we reviewed how the platform met 16 network virtualization requirements very well. The Radisys FlowEngine TDE platform rapidly classifies flows and forwards them based on intelligent policies applied by the SDN orchestration while load balancing packets for the specified applications and network services to mitigate network bottlenecks,” noted Sue Rudd, Director Service Provider Analysis, Strategy Analytics. See complimentary summary ‘Reduce NFV Risk - Pursue Network Virtualization.’ She continued “The new FlowEngine TDE-2000 gives communications service providers a new compact high performance network platform for distributing NFV, 5G and IoT traffic across their virtualized networks.”

About the FlowEngine TDE-2000

The FlowEngine TDE-2000 is delivered in a 1RU platform, making it flexible for deployment in multiple environments.
