Radiator VNF - a true NFV solution

Our customers say that Radiator is the Swiss army knife of AAA servers. Now Radiator is available as the first true implementation of the AAA virtualised network function – Radiator VNF.

Introduction

Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) is a service architecture concept. It uses IT virtualisation technologies to virtualise entire classes of network node functions into building blocks that may be connected to create communication services. Utilising NFV decreases costs because it runs on virtual machines in data centres using generic hardware. Another key benefit of NFV is that it enables rapid service development and deployment with the ease and efficient scalability of cloud services.


Radiator VNF solution - an overview

NFV is a natural environment to deploy Radiator products. Radiator – the Swiss Army knife of AAA servers – a highly flexible component is now available as a VNF solution.

A word about Radiator NFV architecture - what true NFV means

In true Radiator NFV solutions the VNF manager does the scaling and configuration of virtual servers automatically. For example, in our vAAA solution the VNF manager monitors the RADIUS and Diameter traffic distributed by load balancers. When the workload on the existing AAA workers reaches the configured threshold, the VNF manager launches new AAA workers automatically. All the new workers in the cloud are configured automatically by the centralised configuration management service. Configuration management uses metadata services to automatically create the configuration suitable for the current cloud setup. The VNF manager component is also responsible for collecting statistics.
