Qosmos’ vision is that future networks will be built on components and leverage open source frameworks.

Qosmos®, the market leader in Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, SDN and NFV architectures, today announced its participation at the inaugural NFV World Congress held May 5-8 in San Jose, USA.

Qosmos’ vision is that future networks will be built on components and leverage open source frameworks. For components from different suppliers to work, they will need to be interlinked with standardized interfaces defined by organizations such as ETSI, ONF, and IETF. In addition, the new component-based architecture will be structured around open source software (e.g. OpenDaylight as a network controller). As a consequence, Qosmos contributes extensively to open source projects like OpenStack, OpenDaylight, OVS, and OPNFV.

On Thursday, May 7 at 4:40 p.m., Erik Larsson, Vice President of Marketing, will speak about “The Rise of the Layer 7 Classifier, Creating Service-Awareness across Networks”. The Layer 7 Classifier represents an emerging product category, providing detailed, real-time traffic visibility in SDN & NFV environments. It will enable key use cases such as dynamic service chaining in Gi-LAN environments, virtual CPE, and micro-segmentation for enhanced cyber security in datacenters.

The Layer 7 Classifier is a standalone software component located in the packet data path, classifying traffic flows in real time for further processing in e.g. switches, PCEF, firewall, probes, etc. It recognizes traffic up to Layer 7 using Deep Packet Inspection and associated techniques. From its inception, it has been built to be integrated within industry reference frameworks such as SFC, SDN, NFV, and Open Source, and managed by OpenDaylight, OpenStack, etc.

At the OpenDaylight Mini-Summit on Thursday, May 7, Franck Baudin, Senior Software Engineer, Advanced Technologies, will present new functionality in OpenDaylight (ODL), for configuration of Service Function Chaining (SFC) based on L7 classification: “ODL-SFC Feature Development Insights: Application/L7 Aware SFC”. Franck will share his experience of developing a YANG data model extension with added Layer 7 application matchers in ACLs, and a new rendering plugin for configuring SFC based on L7 classification.
