Service Chain Helps Operators Increase the Value of Data Services
With rapid development of mobile Internet and the increasing proportion of revenue of data service, the focus of operators' has begun to shift from voice value-added service to data network value-added service, to meet the urgent needs of mobile data users for intelligent, personalized and differentiated services in data network. The service chain is deployed between mobile network and public network to provide end users with network data value-added services.
ZTE SSC Solution Overview
In general, ZTE's smart service chain includes direct routing load balance and convergent SF.
1. Direct routing load balance provides front-end load balancing for SFs.
2. Convergent SF provides functions such as traffic classifier, stream optimization, URL filtering, virtual firewall and CGNAT.
Traffic classifier: Matches the traffic with the service chain through traffic identification;
Stream optimization: Performs the dynamic congestion perception and analysis based on the access type, location, bandwidth, latency and packet loss rate; Optimizes TCP and QUIC streams to reduce network latency, improve network bandwidth and improve user experience;
URL filtering: Filters out specified data such as vulgar information and malicious websites based on the URL of the user's Internet browsing, to help operators improve users’ Web browsing experiences;
Virtual firewall: Realizes abstraction and virtualization of firewall resources, and provides network security for core network, to help operators improve network security;
CGNAT: Provides functions such as SNAT and ALG to relieve the pressure of the operator's IPv4 address shortage.
The ZTE SSC solution helps operators enhance user data service experiences and increase ARPU.
