Procera Networks introduces new 10Gbps DPI appliance

Includes support for asymmetric and geographically dispersed network deployments

By CBR Staff Writer

Procera Networks, a developer of Evolved DPI offerings for network service providers, has unveiled two rack unit (2RU) 10Gbps deep packet inspection (DPI) appliance PacketLogic PL8720.

The company said that the appliance is designed for customers with accelerating network growth plans that are transitioning or will transition from GE (gigabit ethernet) to 10GE links. The appliance has up to eight 10GE or sixteen GE ports in a single appliance.

Procera claims that the PL8720 takes advantage of Datastream Recognition Definition Language (DRDL) and the PacketLogic Intelligence Centre and enables multiple systems to be clustered to support growth up to 80Gbps of throughput in a single deployment.

The PL8720 ships with the same feature-set as the other PacketLogic family members, including support for asymmetric and geographically dispersed network deployments, the company said.

Jon Linden, vice president of global marketing at Procera, said: The PacketLogic PL8720 is designed to satisfy a demand from service providers and higher education institutions as they further upgrade their network to 10GE links.

“The PL8720 fulfills this need and will serve as a catalyst for these customers to deploy DPI solutions as we change the economics of DPI. Complete application, subscriber, location and device awareness enables PL8720 to implement intelligent network traffic analysis, network optimisation, congestion control, network protection and innovative service creation.
