Creanord Supercharges RFC 6349 TCP Testing with DPDK, launches 100G vProbe VNF supporting Millions of TCP Connections

Creanord Ltd, the leader in SDN/NFV network state, assurance and service reporting solutions, today announced Supercharged TrueTCP RFC 6349 testing with 1,000,000s of simultaneous TCP connections. The new functionality brings unsurpassed power and versatility to turn-up NFV/SDN and measure traditional networks’ capability to support TCP applications with speeds ranging from 1 Gbps to 100 Gbps.

Service assurance needs to extend to TCP. Otherwise many user applications may fail when the network or middleboxes are under pressure even though Ethernet and IP layers seem to function as expected. Testing the number of sustainable users requires real TCP traffic in meaningful quantities. Creanord Supercharged TrueTCP with RFC 6349 exploits DPDK to enable 1,000,000s of simultaneous TCP connections. This enables TCP Turn-up testing to determine how many users the network can serve before a capacity bottleneck is reached or for instance when firewall connection table is exhausted. The TrueTCP is also a valuable tool in troubleshooting. The vProbe VNF with TrueTCP works at speeds ranging from 1 Gbps to 100 Gbps to validate the ability of the network to handle high TCP load.

“Powerful TCP testing has become a must.” states Creanord CEO Jari Augustin. “You simply need to know how many users your network can sustain. Solutions either utilizing headers-only ‘Fake TCP’ or supporting only some tens of connections are inadequate when it comes to simulating tens or hundreds of thousands of users on TCP. RFC 6349 is a good starting point, but does not go nearly far enough. So we took it and supercharged it with the help of Intel DPDK and run it on our vProbe – enabling automated pre-testing of SDN-driven connections with NFV middleboxes.”
vProbes can be spun up at central locations, intermediate points or at the vCPE enabling capacity, health, latency and connectivity monitoring, segmented or end-to-end. Supercharged TrueTCP runs on CreaNODE hardware probes and vProbe all the way up to 100G.
