In general, ZTE SSC includes three parts: Direct Routing Load Balance, Convergent SF and 3rd Party SF.
1. Direct routing load balance provides front-end load balancing for SFs.
2. Convergent SF provides functions such as traffic classifier, TCP optimization, URL filtering and virtual firewall.
- Traffic classifier matches the traffic with the service chain through traffic identification;
- TCP optimization accelerates downlink TCP packets by maximizing the efficiency of the transport layer in the mobile data network, to help operators enhance users’ online experiences;
- 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 networks, to help operators improve network security.
3. 3rd party SF provides functions such as video optimization (VO) and cache.
- Video optimization accelerates video streaming through transcoding, caching, and other media-related TCP/HTTP optimization technologies, to enhance users’ video viewing experiences;
- Cache provides Web browsing acceleration which users and sources are unaware of, to help operators reduce inter-network settlement and improve users’ network access experiences.
