Saisei helps deliver fair usage, VIP user experience on SDN

network analytics company Saisei´s FlowCommand is being used by Sunway Digital Wave (SDW) to guarantee fair and equal access to network services and a superior quality of experience (QoE) to all subscribers.

As the managed services provider (MSP) to Malaysia´s largest property-construction group, Sunway must deliver consistent, high-quality services and Internet access to a vast and varied community of APAC users bringing new applications and next-gen devices onto their network. SDW has been building out its Software Defined Network (SDN) to support business expansion to new regions and new residential and commercial customers outside the Sunway groups as well.

SDW had been using Exinda´s Network Orchestrator, and evaluated other WAN optimization and DPI solutions like BlueCoat´s PacketShaper, but none provided fair usage and the deeper, real-time network analytics and control they needed.

SDW has deployed FlowCommand at the heart of their SDN network, and all Internet traffic goes through it. Taking advantage of patented flow-control technology, the software guarantees each user or host has equal access to the network regardless of how many users are on the network or what applications they are running.

It identifies, monitors and controls every single flow on a critical broadband link — up to millions of concurrent data, voice and video sessions — in real time without any impact on network performance. Aggressive applications — including P2P applications, high volumes of YouTube traffic or file transfers, that grab huge percentages of link bandwidth and crash other users — get the same percentage of a link´s bandwidth as every other user on the network.
