US-based network solutions company NetCee Systems has launched an ultra-high speed deep packet inspection engine for protocol analysis and pattern recognition.
The company claims that it can identify and process one trillion types of protocol at wirespeeds of approximately 50Gbps, which is five times faster than the current industry standards of 10Gbps. The company said that the product can identify all protocols of layer 2 (data link layer) to layer 7 (application layer).
The ultra packet processor runs at 50+ Gbps and addresses the challenges that customers face with high speed packet matching and classification, said Shakeel Mustafa, chief executive at NetCee. Although, today’s devices can identify real time application protocols, they can neither report nor maintain the information about the state of an individual connection and associated QoS parameters such as delay, packet loss, jitter and out of sequence packets.
The company added that the application has features such as IPv6 routing lookup tables at ultra high speed, high speed protocol analyzers, stateful protocol identification, flow, application and session monitoring, prioritization and application layer firewalls.
In March 2007, Qosmos launched the Q-Engine, which it claims to be the most powerful deep packet inspection technology for identification of application protocols at wirespeeds of 10Gbps.
