Procera Networks and Tilera Unleash 200Gbps Deep Packet Inspection Solution
Industry-Leading, Agile and Scalable Performance Achieved With Procera NAVL OEM DPI Engine and Tilera's TILE-Gx Platform
BARCELONA, SPAIN and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - (Mobile World Congress and RSA) Procera Networks, Inc. ( NASDAQ : PKT ), the global intelligent policy enforcement company and Tilera Corporation, the leader in 64-bit TILE-Gx™ manycore general purpose processors, today announced they have achieved 200Gbps of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) performance deploying the Procera Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) on TILExtreme-Gx™ Duo platform, utilizing approximately 70 percent of the TILE-Gx cores.
This industry-best performance addresses the growing requirements of telecommunications and enterprise security providers to implement application-aware policies to efficiently manage their networks without sacrificing user quality of experience (QoE). The solution can be deployed in a variety of networking scenarios including Network Security (IDS/IPS, DPI, DLP), Cyber Security, Network Monitoring, Data Forensics, Analytics and Big Data processing.
"With traffic volume and application types exploding in service provider and enterprise networks, there is a growing demand for high-throughput, accurate and real-time DPI to enable network optimization and tiered billing," said Jason Richards, senior vice president of business development for Procera Networks. "The accuracy and breadth of applications and protocols supported by the Procera NAVL DPI engine, coupled with the 200Gbps throughput we have achieved on the TILE-Gx, is the perfect solution to meet this rapidly growing and complex demand."
Tilera's TILExtreme-Gx Duo platform packs 288 cores with eight TILE-Gx36™ processors in a compact 1U rack mountable device. The TILE-Gx manycore processor ranges from 9 cores to up to 72 cores, and is available in various form factors from half-length PCIe cards to 288 cores in a 1U chassis. This enables customers to choose 5Gbps, 10Gbps, 40Gbps, 100Gbps or 200Gbps DPI solutions depending on the overall solution requirements.
"We have once again shattered the record books by delivering the industry's highest performance per watt DPI solution with our TILE-Gx 64-bit processor," said Michael Zimmerman, vice president of marketing for Tilera Corporation. "Our focus on standard software programmability, maximizing performance per watt and scalability enabled us to deliver such high performance. Further, this solution utilizes about 70 percent of the available processing on the platform, leaving the rest for other functions -- such as billing, policy enforcement and end user customization."
Procera's NAVL is an easily integrated DPI engine, providing real-time, Layer-7 classification of network application traffic. NAVL enhances telecommunications providers' abilities to provide a variety of application-aware functions to ensure equitable access to resources by all users and to create tiered classes of service for billing. Procera's NAVL DPI engine and OEM products are the result of its recent acquisition of Vineyard Networks.
Tilera and Procera Networks will demonstrate these capabilities at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the Fira Gran Via, February 25-28, 2013 in hall 5 stand 5I10 and at RSA in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Center, February 25-March 1, 2013 in booth #2739.
Tilera® Corporation is the developer of the highest performance, low-power, general purpose manycore processors. Tilera is headquartered in San Jose, Calif., with additional locations worldwide.
To those who buy stocks based on instinct, tech stocks can be a tough read. You hear about IPv6 and high speed DPI and think #$%$, how come the SP isn't going up? PKT has always approached the markets differently preparing for market network leaders that demand the highest speed application sorting and analytics but because the U.S. markets aren't offering high speed technology to anyone except private corporations who can afford to pay ridiculous prices for T3 speeds, little is written about it. PKT understands that world leaders such as South Korea, believe it or not, are moving rapidly past our networks and the entire Asian continent and island nations are quickly moving with other developing countries to compete. They know what it will take a few years down the road when the U.S. market for bandwidth is gobbled up by some stalwarts like Mexico, or maybe Venezuela. Seriously, if you think I'm joking, let me know and I'll point you to the essentials on why we are losing our competitive edge and how no one seems to notice.
