At IBC2019 Belgian media IP-networking and storage company SDNsquare is showcasing its growing range of products for optimising the predictability, performance and management of high-traffic IP networks.

One product on showcase is the company’s GRID software-defined network controller, which can cope with all type of data streams in a predictable way, said SDN square. With GRID, users can set up IP data paths without packet loss, with low latency and with the exact bandwidth they need - even in bursty, high-impact traffic in many-to-many environments. GRID also provides the capability to optimally manage any type of topology, including spine-leaf topology networks.

Control: Improved network predictability, reliability and performance is promised

Making its first major showing in Europe is L-GRID, a software component that works with selected network cards, and runs on high speed network endpoints (clients/servers) that send data to lower speed endpoints. It tackles the issue of speed mismatches between high speed and lower speed endpoints at the source, increasing the efficiency of storage and core networks and reducing the need for investment in the network. The network card is configured by L-GRID to only allow bursts of the configured bandwidth; data flows to the preconfigured destinations are sent out of the network card perfectly shaped to the given bandwidth.

Also on show at IBC is WARP, a linearly scalable, clustered storage and computing platform to support real-time workflows in demanding environments.
