Moving to 100Gbps Internet access: DDoS considerations
Presented by IHS Markit and
Key Topics for Discussion
A new wave of high-speed optical Internet connectivity is here, and bandwidth providers around the globe are selling 100Gbps links as fast as they can install them. In many cases, customers are choosing 20Gbps CDR over 100Gbps bearer to replace 2x10Gps links because the economics are undeniable; but, unfortunately, those links can still burst up to 100G of traffic, which happens frequently during denial of service attacks.
On the good side, moving to 20G on 100G bearer decreases saturating attack vulnerability significantly, though companies still need protection up to the burst capacity. Enter a new generation of in-line DDoS mitigation solutions that can protect 100Gbps links (and beyond) for a fraction of the cost of DDoS mitigation solutions. In this webinar we will discuss what actions need to be taken to ensure a network is protected on the move to 100Gbps fiber.
