FUJITSU Network Virtuora TC

Features of FUJITSU Network Virtuora TC

  • Virtuora TC is software that can capture up to 20Gbps of network traffic data at full line rate, accumulate data and simultaneously undertake high-speed searching. It enables complete communications data-trail management through high-speed searching for required information from the data accumulated.
  • The accumulated communications data can be used by various analysis systems, such as those that manage the quality of communications lines and cloud services, or for security and other purposes, through the API provided by Virtuora TC.

Figure of features of Virtuora TC

(*1) It can capture up to 10Gbps of network traffic data (total wire speed is 20Gbps, including up-link and down-link) at full line rate.
(*2) When 10Gbps network traffic data (total wire speed of 20Gbps, including up-link and down-link) is flowing at peak network capacity, around three days' worth of network traffic data can be accumulated for the communications data trail. When the upper limit is reached, the oldest data is automatically deleted first.
(*3) It can use the accumulated network traffic data in the form of pcap (packet capture) via a web-based API.

Reduced data analysis time

It typically takes half a day or more to search for the required information from the huge volume of network traffic data. However, Virtuora TC creates indexes for each session, enabling the required information to be found in a few seconds or less than a minute. This significantly reduces the time required for data analysis.

Scalable data accumulation capacity without system stoppage

Virtuora TC makes it possible to increase data accumulation capacity without system stoppage. Therefore, data storage(*4) can be added without losing any network traffic data.

(*4) Up to a maximum of 36 data storage servers can be used.

Minimal initial capital expenditure

With conventional systems, expensive dedicated equipment is required to capture network traffic data from a broadband network at full line rate. Fujitsu has developed Virtuora TC as a software offering bundled with a versatile server. This solution can therefore reduce the capital expenditure outlays typically needed to deploy a network quality management system.

Usage Scenarios

The following usage scenarios resulted from implementing the Virtuora TC network quality management system in customer networks.

1) System enhancement for traffic data increases

In conjunction with the network quality management system, Virtuora TC can analyze the traffic data in detail and find the target information in a few seconds or less than a minute. Virtuora TC assists network operators with faster decision making to dramatically enhance server and network capacity.

2) Blocking unauthorized access

Events such as DoS (denial of service) attacks, enabled by unauthorized access, can bring down MVNO and ISP web services. Virtuora TC can analyze unauthorized access based on the access history information it gathers on every user's activities. The operator can then block any unauthorized user.

(*5) Network operations can be enhanced by deploying together with FUJITSU Network Proactnes II QM – network quality management software.
