Increased Network Visibility. Stronger Security. Improved Services

Arbor Networks SP provides comprehensive network visibility and reporting capabilities to help you detect and understand availability threats, and improve traffic engineering, peering relationships and service performance. SP can also help you grow your business by serving as a platform for managed DDoS protection services.

Features & Benefits

Intelligent Traffic Engineering

By modeling IPv4 and IPv6 traffic across the entire network, SP enables you to make timely and informed decisions about routing, transit, partners, customers and quality of service. SP also improves traffic engineering and capacity planning by correlating topology information with real-time and historic traffic data. With this rich insight into network traffic and customer-by-customer traffic matrices, you can make cost-efficient adjustments to network traffic operations and eliminate hot spots before they adversely impact services.

Comprehensive, Near Real-Time DDoS Detection and Mitigation

Arbor Networks SP combines pervasive, cost-effective visibility with real-time reporting of critical network traffic, services and applications to proactively protect against DDoS attacks, including comprehensive protection for dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 infrastructure.

Network Leveraged DDoS Detection and Mitigation

SP analyzes flow telemetry (Netflow, IPFIX, jflow, sflow, and Netstream) from routers on the network to understand the traffic on the network and detect DDoS attacks. With SP’s workflow-based GUI an operator can analyze any type of traffic or attack traffic and leverage the network to block any undesired traffic via Flowspec, S/RTBH, or Openflow blacklisting on an ASR 9000 Router.

Application-Layer Intelligence and Protection

SP combines pervasive, cost-effective visibility with real-time reporting of critical network traffic, services and applications to proactively protect against DDoS attacks.  SP can detect “fast flood” attacks in as little as 1 second and via interactive DDoS alert dashboards, SP enables operators to have the most important attack information at their fingertips to quickly and more intelligently start mitigation and stop attacks in as little as 4 seconds.

Proven, Profitable, In-Cloud Managed Service Offerings

You can leverage SP in combination with Arbor Networks TMS or Cisco ASR 9000 vDDoS Protection to offer your customers cloud-based, differentiated managed security services such as MPLS VPN visibility and DDoS protection in order to expand your business and increase revenue.

Flexible Licensing and Virtual Deployments

Features of Arbor Networks SP Flex Licensing include: independent platform and software licenses, support for virtual machines, and major improvements in performance and scalability. Benefits of Flex Licensing include: lower capex cost, cost advantageous expansion of the Arbor solution, no required hardware, optimized deployment, faster deployments and upgrade, and low total cost of ownership.

Mobile Network Analysis and Protection

SP provides visibility into the mobile network and analysis of the traffic traversing through the mobile network and its boundaries. Coupled with Arbor Networks TMS or Cisco ASR 9000 vDDoS Protection, SP can protect critical mobile network infrastructure to ensure availability of the network and its applications for your mobile users.
