du switched to GenieATM system for enhancing traffic flow analysis and security defence against DDoS attack

GenieNRM today announced that du, the second largest telecommunications company in United Arab Emirates, has chosen GenieATM as their solution for traffic anomaly detection and internet security against DDoS attack.

du delivers mobile and fixed telephony, broadband connectivity and IPTV services to individuals, homes and businesses. With more than 40,000 businesses and 5 million personal customers, it is crucial for du to maintain a reliable service with the ability to remedy problematic situations efficiently. GenieATM provides enhanced network traffic behaviour awareness through snapshot tools, pre-defined reports and rule-based reports thus allowing network managers to quickly resolve network anomalies. Additionally, GenieATM offers traffic analysis information that could be beneficial for peering and transit costs reduction.

GenieATM outperforms its competitor in many aspects especially in capacity, performance, and network securities. After the initial trial operation, du soon decided to replace its original solution with GenieATM and has diverted the flow data from their international gateway routers into GenieATM system owing to its superior performance.

du has opted to use the combination of GenieATM6369 and GenieATM6169 to operate two independent systems simultaneously achieving full redundancy for the entire network. More importantly, GenieATM provides the feasibility to integrate with Huawei Eudemon in order to further enhance the level of security defence against DDoS attack.

With GenieATM, du is now able to deliver traffic analysis and anomaly detections 24/7 to thousands of important customers within the network.
