PKT Launches the World's Fastest Intelligent Policy Enforcer
The PL10000 is the industry’s most scalable multi-10 Gbps Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) platform, with support for up 120 Gbps of throughput in a single system, and multi- system performance scaling up to 2 Tbps. The PL10000 was specifically designed for customers that are rapidly growing their network bandwidth beyond 10Gbps of capacity, and need flexibility to grow their network deployment to handle the explosive growth of bandwidth usage in broadband networks. It was also specifically designed for today’s high connection, high growth Internet, where social networks have dramatically increased the number of active connections on the network, and video streaming continues to grow daily.
The PL10000 comes in two models, the PL10005 (a 5RU chassis) and the PL10014 (a 12RU chassis), each using the same hard- ware modules. Up to six 10GE ports can be used for traffic processing, network redun - dancy, or traffic diversion. It also supports FlowSync and QueueSync, which enable full support for asymmetric traffic and sim pli- fied clustering for network and capacity growth beyond 10 Gbps. The system supports redundancy and high availability, including internal N+1 redundancy
The PL10000 combines policy enforcement with granular awareness. The PL10000 leverages DRDL ™ (Datastream Recognition Definition Language), PacketLogic’s unique traffic identification engine, to gain visibility into network, subscriber, device, and location information. DRDL provides full Layer 7 visibility into applications, providing un- paralleled visibility into application behavior and service properties, enabling network operators to make fine-grained distinctions in managing services and congestion on their networks. DRDL has been confirmed by independent third-parties to be the most accurate traffic identification engine available, which is critical when policy enforcement is used for service creation and charging.
