Intelligent DPI is essential for applications like mobile analytics, quality of experience and network security.
Paris, France (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Leveraging the power of its ixEngine, the most powerful DPI engine on the market, Qosmos today announced the availability of pre-configured, plug-and-play DeepFlow™ probes. These ready-to-use components contain protocol and metadata plugins and data export modules to feed actionable L4-7 Network Intelligence to specific applications, such as for mobile analytics, QoE measurement and network security. Qosmos DeepFlow can be used in all environments: physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures.
The probes classify traffic into organized flows, describe protocols and relevant metadata in real time, and stream metadata to a target application or third-party system. Vendors and integrators can select probes according to application, network speed and form factor. Each probe is available as an appliance, blade, or software-only form factor for use in any network, including virtualized and cloud environments. The probes operate at network speeds of 2, 4, 10 and 20 Gb/s, and are able to handle complex network behavior, such as http pipelining or http proxy. Virtualizing or stacking several DeepFlow probes extends capacity to millions of subscribers and hundreds of Gb/s.
Requirements for advanced DPI and network intelligence is rising, but network vendors and systems integrators lack the expertise, time and resources for in-house development or integration.
Qosmos meets the demand with its new portfolio of DeepFlow probes in a choice of form factors to fit specific use cases:
- DeepFlow for Mobile Analytics provides visibility on subscribers’ use of network services for the creation of user profiles and preferences. This probe delivers information on protocols and applications used by subscribers, including for example those embedded in Facebook, and extracts application metadata for more detailed profiles. The information is fed to third party analytics systems through standard connectors. Qosmos DeepFlow is used by Systems Integrators and Network Equipment vendors.
- DeepFlow for QoS/QoE provides Quality of Experience metrics such as application response time, jitter, video codec details, etc. on each IP flow, including standardized protocols and OTT applications. The information is fed to third party systems through standard connectors.
- DeepFlow for Security provides SIEM vendors with application-level searching and alerting, enabling customers with faster yet more granular searches, fewer false positives and more accurate alerts. This probe has received Common Event Format (CEF) certification from HP ArcSight. It is also used by security vendors and integrators to feed application information and metadata to solutions such as NBAD, DDoS mitigation and network forensics.
- DeepFlow Application Component Suite (ACS) is a platform product which can be configured to stream any data in any data structure. This fully customizable probe reveals the full capability of Qosmos L4-7 Network Intelligence, to fit the needs for any use case in telecoms or security.
Qosmos' L4-7 flow analysis technology is the first to natively support IPv6 (and all transition mechanisms between IPv6 and IPv4) for metadata-driven Network Intelligence. The DeepFlow probes package this technology to provide deep, real-time visibility into network traffic to address specific requirements.
“Intelligent DPI is essential for applications like mobile analytics, quality of experience and network security” stressed Qosmos CEO, Thibaut Bechetoille. “That’s why we created an additional line of application-specific, plug-and-play, DeepFlow probes in line with the new market needs for visibility, reducing time to market for vendors and systems integrators while increasing overall performance.”
Qosmos provides the information layer in service-aware networks based on SDN and NFV. The company specializes in Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Layer 4-7 Network Intelligence (NI) technologies which recognize thousands of communication protocols and metadata attributes for the most accurate picture of real-time data activity on networks.
The company’s software development kit and probes are embedded by equipment makers, specialized vendors and cloud service providers into their offerings which are sold to telcos and enterprises to accelerate time to market and get continuous signature updates.
Qosmos’ technologies can be embedded inside all next-generation solutions where real-time L4-7 intelligence is critical, such as traffic optimization, policy management, quality of experience, analytics, firewalls, cyber defense, and more. Qosmos can be used in all environments: physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures.
