Niagara 5010 can direct traffic to up to 8 multi-core CPU based Network Processor Boards
Networking systems provider Interface Masters Technologies has introduced Traffic Navigator, a new product family of turnkey appliance which enables programmable Deep Packet inspection (DPI) application and management to meet the networking demands.
The Niagara 5010 is a 2U networking appliance supporting 40G and 10G ports managed by a non-blocking switching fabric, that can direct traffic to up to 8 multi-core CPU based Network Processor Boards(NPB).
The new system supports high performance networking elements including a multi core 64 bit MIPS control processor, and up to 64 cores CPU for Data Processing.
Niagara 5010 is compatible with Interface Masters 1Gb and 10Gb bypass technology and can be installed in conjunction with the Niagara 2818 or Niagara 2299. It also includes a bay expansion slot for future high speed line-rate processing upgradability.
The new system and its NPBs now comes with APIs and Linux development environment, enabling porting of any open source or Linux application.
The Niagara 5010 provides features include:10Gb and 40G ports, up to 8 offload Blades/NPB, up to 64 cores @1.5 Ghz, up to 64 GB of memory, support for SFP, SFP+ and QSFP+, 960Gbps switch Fabric and multi Core Processor for control plane Processor running Linux OS.
It also includes 24 port 1G switch for inter blade communication, 48 Lane PCI-e Gen2 for inter blade communication, SATA Controller, four hot pluggable redundant Power Supplies (N+2) and eight hot pluggable, reversible Fans.
Interface Masters Technologies founder and CEO Ben Askarinam said tha company has introduced a new Programmable Traffic Navigator system to address the growing granularity, flexibility and horse power required of network appliances that address the network security, forensics, monitoring, and deep packet inspection markets.
"Niagara 5010 and associated Network Processing Boards (NPB) ensure the heavy demands of network applications are met at 320Gb line-rates while providing the flexibility to process applications on a variety of multi-core CPU-based blades," said Askarinam.
