FPT Telecom Selects Noction IRP for Real-Time Route Optimization

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- FPT Telecom, a Vietnamese Internet service and telecommunication provider, deployed Noction Intelligent Routing Platform (IRP) to add automation to their route optimization processes.

The corporation maintains several redundant data centers in Vietnam, connected to over 30 Internet Service Providers. FPT Telecom delivers ISP services via broadband and Internet card subscriptions. In addition, the company offers leased line and web services, including domain name registration, hosting, web based software, and content provider services, running multiple online newspapers, gaming platforms and business solutions. It serves NGOs, government agencies and international enterprises across the Asia-Pacific region.

Providers similar to FPT Telecom are challenged to deliver a highly available service, as their end-users are usually enterprises running online businesses empowered by latency sensitive applications. To reach such network performance requirements, these providers are deploying multiple datacenters within their network, to be as close as possible to their end-users.

Despite these efforts, the service delivered by such providers can still be prone to disruptions and downtime. Their networks are interconnected by the Border Gateway Protocol (known as BGP) -- a standard routing protocol used within today's networks that computes the shortest path to reach the end-user. Unfortunately, BGP alone is not aware of metrics like packet loss or latency, and might send traffic through underperforming routes. Providers optimize their network edge to re-direct traffic around congested paths towards better performing ones. Such kind of route tuning within complex infrastructures like FPT's are time consuming and involve extended engineering resources. Besides that, due to a huge amount of work, there is a lot of space for human error, which could lead to network outages.

Noction IRP replaces the traditional optimization approaches, automating the route improvement processes. The platform performs non-intrusive network assessment to identify the best performing alternative, redirecting the traffic around outages or congested paths. This way, the platform ensures efficient traffic flow, reducing the risk of human error that could lead to service disruption. "Given the hard work we have been doing throughout the years, we have been a bit skeptical regards to what the platform can deliver. As soon as we began testing it, we realized that complex route optimization as we knew it, was no longer required and that was quite impressive," - stated Nguyen Lam Phuong - CTO of FPT Telecom.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
