Qosmos and Napatech Provide Rich, Real-time Input for Mobile Analytics and Service Assurance

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Paris, France and Copenhagen, Denmark -- Qosmos, the market leader in embedded DPI and Napatech, the world's largest vendor of intelligent adapters for network monitoring and analysis, today provided details on the new Qosmos DeepFlow(TM) Telecom probe, a pre-configured analytics appliance ideal for telecom solution providers who need to perform big data analysis on high-speed mobile data for service assurance and optimization.


"The proliferation of smart mobile devices is leading to increased data usage and more advanced services", stated Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO Qosmos. "Video streaming will be responsible for a large portion of data, but we will also see voice over LTE and other time-sensitive services mixed with business and entertainment applications. We can already see that mobile subscribers are responding with exponential growth in data usage. Carriers realize that this situation needs to be managed to assure service performance and optimize service offerings." The DeepFlow Telecom appliance combines Qosmos Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) capabilities with Napatech intelligent network adapters to provide rich, real-time input for big data analysis of mobile network data. Qosmos technology provides the most comprehensive protocol and metadata analysis in the industry while Napatech network adapters ensure guaranteed packet capture at core network speeds. In addition, the nanosecond precision time-stamping capabilities of Napatech network adapters allow precise measurement of jitter and delay in mobile networks, which is important for service assurance.

"Qosmos and Napatech have worked together to provide an optimized, pre-integrated mobile analytics probe", stated Henrik Brill Jensen, CEO Napatech. "Our engineering teams have ensured that Qosmos DPI software has been optimized to take full benefit of the acceleration features that Napatech network adapters provide, leading to a powerful and scalable appliance." "Data analysis is the starting point for service assurance and optimization", continued Jensen". As Ethernet and IP networks are bursty and dynamic in nature, data must be collected in real-time and at high-speed. Data integrity and completeness are essential for effective analysis. It is therefore important that all data is captured and inspected without packet loss before being presented for big data analysis. This is what Napatech network adapters ensure." Qosmos software can recognize 1100 protocols and extract 6000 metadata types including applications that often try to avoid detection. Regular updates to this library ensure that users can stay ahead of the game.

"With the powerful L7 intelligence that we provide, it is not only possible to understand what is happening in a mobile network and react to it, but also to optimize the service offerings", added Bechetoille. Napatech provides a complete portfolio of intelligent network adapters supporting speeds from 10 Mbps to 40 Gbps. Advanced data pre-processing features can identify flows based on well-known network protocols including tunneling protocols commonly used in mobile networks, such as GTP. Intelligent distribution can direct these flows to up to 32 server CPU cores. This allows Qosmos DPI software to scale performance by adding more CPU cores supporting data speeds up to 40 Gbps.

About Qosmos 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. http://www.qosmos.com/ Qosmos Media Contact Debby Stefaniak, Full Circle Communications +1-609-721-1368 dstefaniak@fullcirclecomm.com About Napatech Napatech is the leading OEM supplier of 40 GbE, 10 GbE and 1 GbE intelligent adapters for real-time network analysis with over 100,000 Ethernet ports deployed. Napatech network adapters provide real-time packet capture and transmission with full line-rate throughput and zero packet loss no matter the packet size. Intelligent features enable off-load of data traffic processing and packet analysis normally performed in the CPU. This results in more processing power for the network monitoring, analysis, management, test, measurement, security or optimization application being supported. Napatech has sales, marketing and R&D offices in Mountain View (CA), Andover (MA), Washington D.C., Tokyo (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), Sao Paolo (Brazil) and Copenhagen (Denmark).

SDN PRECON at ITEXPO Miami

Software-defined network is considered by many to be one of the most important, and potentially disruptive, developments in networking since the rise of the Internet. To date, networks and connectivity have come first, and applications have followed. SDN turns this model on its head, approaching networking from an apps-first standpoint.

In this SDN pre conference at ITEXPO Miami, we will define SDN, look at the technologies and components involved in SDN, the use cases of SDN, the players involved in moving SDN forward, and what this all means for networking as we know it.
