Joint demo combines Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) 40G AdvancedTCA® hardware, multi-core packet processors and security DPI software that scales to 1Tbps (1000Gbps) per rack
Montreal, Canada and San Jose, California - February 14, 2011 — Kontron and Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM) today announced they will have a live demonstration during Mobile World Congress 2012 that illustrates how telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) can achieve 1Tbps (1000Gbps) of multi-functional Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) performance on a single integrated COTS hardware/software solution. The demo consists of a 40Gbs AdvancedTCA® DPI-hardened Kontron platform using Cavium’s OCTEON® II 32 core processors and Cavium TurboDPI™ software. Possible implementations by TEMs include network element designs for 4G LTE and carrier cloud-based services that require multi-purpose security of fixed and mobile streaming data. Scheduled presentations will take place at the Cavium booth 2B05 in Hall 2.0, February 27 to March 1, 2012.
This Kontron-Cavium collaboration is yet another key milestone in their efforts to enable TEMs to dramatically reduce their time to design and deploy new network infrastructure equipment for the service-provider market. Kontron has three generations of open standard hardware designed with Cavium multi-core packet processors; this latest project is a significant step towards providing large-scale, application-ready security DPI platforms that can trim a TEM’s design cycle by up to half.
More about the Kontron – Cavium Demo
The blending of Kontron and Cavium hardware and software technologies enables the analysis of data streams to identify protocols and applications, inappropriate URLs, intrusion attempts or malware – all in a single pass at up to 1Tbps (1000 Gbps) performance per system. On hand will be a 40G AdvancedTCA® open modular platform populated with Kontron AdvancedTCA® Packet Processor Blades AT8242 utilized to both generate simulated traffic and perform various simultaneous traffic analyses. Each Kontron blade is designed with dual Cavium OCTEON II MIPS64® multi-core processors (Winner of Best Embedded Processor Award from Linley Group) for a total of 64 cores and 80Gbps packet processor performance.
Cavium TurboDPI Software
TurboDPI utilizes Cavium’s new, patent-pending Uniscan™ technology that is incorporated in all multi-core OCTEON II processors to simultaneously block malicious or inappropriate URLs, identify hundreds of widely used protocols and applications, help block thousands of different intrusion attempts and locate over a hundred thousand varieties of viruses and malware threats, all with just a single scan and with up to 40Gbps performance per processor. TurboDPI solution can be utilized inline or out of band to detect hundreds of protocols including Internet (HTTP, FTP etc), Email (IMAP, POP3, SMTP etc.), Web 2.0 (Facebook, Myspace, etc.), Multimedia (Flash, QuickTime, YouTube, etc.), Peer to Peer (BitTorrent, eDonkey, etc.) and Voice and Messaging (Skype, Google Talk, Yahoo, etc.).
