Policy Traffic Switch 32000

The World’s First 2RU 100GE Network Policy Control Platform

Enable your transition to 100GE with the Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) 32000. This leading network policy control platform delivers PCEF/TDF functionality at the highest scale, boasts the best performance density, and delivers deep packet inspection (DPI) technology for a range of gigabit Ethernet interfaces including 100GE, 40GE, and 10GE. With PTS 32000’s deployment versatility, the Sandvine Policy Engine can be embedded anywhere in your network. For example, see our flexible LTE deployment optionsPowered by the Sandvine Policy Engine and in conjunction with the Service Delivery Engine (SDE), in the control plane, the PTS 32000 is bringing unified network policy control to fixed, mobile, and converged 100Gbps networks worldwide. 

Big Performance in a Small Package, with Real-World Versatility

Policy Traffic Switch 32000

  • Throughput: up to 375 Gbps of throughput with full line-rate inspection, and the architecture supports clustered deployments up to 8 Tbps
  • Concurrent Flows: the PTS 32000 series scales up to 60 million concurrent flows and a flow initiation rate up to 2.5 million new flows per second
  • Performance Density: throughput and concurrent flows are delivered in only 2RU, giving the PTS 32000 series the world’s best per-rack unit performance density
  • Port Density: whether using the 100GE ports, the 40GE ports or 10GE ports, carriers benefit from the world’s highest performance density
  • Power Consumption: at only 1440 W, the PTS 32000 leads in GB per Watt performance

Unique Architecture for Distinct Benefits

The Policy Traffic Switch has distinct advantages over competing products, enabling operators and their subscribers to reap the rewards of network policy control. Sandvine’s PTS 32000 incorporates unique architectural features that convey real-world operator benefits, including:

  • Hardware-based load distribution: PTS performance does not decrease when more ports are enabled, so unit scaling is linear – other alternatives incur processing overhead with each enabled port
  • Separate data management and data processing functions: ensures that the PTS is not vulnerable to data-plane attacks (including floods and access attempts) and increases system resilience
  • Software bypass capability: software-based traffic shunting enables PTS deployments in network environments in which multiple copies of the same traffic are observed, without duplicating processor load
  • Flexible blade options: depending on the deployment use cases required, blades can be used to increase port density or to provide unit bypass redundancy
  • Intermodel clustering: clusters can be comprised of any combination of models within the PTS 32000 family, providing operators with deployment flexibility and cost-effective growth options
