Cloud Networking

Unblock the Cloud Connectivity Bottleneck

Cloud networks are experiencing fluctuation workloads, dynamic traffic demands and exponential traffic growth. To meet these demands, cloud and service providers need a connectivity solution as flexible, scalable and cost-effective as the cloud itself. A solution optimized for traffic within the cloud, and between data centers, peering points, access networks, and partners in the metro area—where most traffic growth is occurring. Legacy networking solutions built on layers of discrete switching, routing, and optical networking elements are too costly, complex, and inflexible for today’s dynamic cloud environments.

BTI redefines cloud networking with the first open networking solution for inter-data center connectivity specifically engineered from the ground up to meet the stringent price-performance, scalability, and service innovation demands of the cloud.

Based on an open Software-Defined Networking (SDN) framework and compatible with the emerging Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) models, our solution enables highly adaptable and programmable networks ideally suited for interconnecting data centers, peering points, access networks, and cloud partner networks—including traditional service, content, colocation and hosting providers—in today’s virtualized and elastic service environments.

Our cloud networking solution provides:

  • Massive scale—Leveraging the latest processing, compute and Coherent networking technologies, BTI’s cloud networking solution delivers up to 5.6 Tbps of full duplex wavelength capacity in a compact footprint, scaling bandwidth while dramatically improving network utilization with a low first-in cost.
  • Compelling economics—BTI’s convergence of optical, packet and application layers reduces network elements, space, power and cooling requirements, dramatically reducing complexity and slashing CAPEX and OPEX. SDN automation and programmability further reduce operational complexity and cost.
  • Network agility—An open SDN-based flexible and modular architecture enables elastic and dynamic resources to meet evolving application needs—such as bandwidth on demand or ‘cloud bursting’.
  • Service velocity—BTI’s embedded analytics and application awareness simplify the process of provisioning network services, reducing time-to-market and increasing service velocity.  A service-oriented architecture enables rapid innovation and monetization by leveraging a LINUX-based compute blade with open APIs for integrating BTI, customer or third-party NFV-based applications.
