Rio de Janeiro, Brasil -- October 4th, 2012 – Vineyard Networks and Napatech today announced that they will be demonstrating a new, powerful 20 Gbps Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) enabled platform at the upcoming Futurecom in Rio de Janeiro. The DPI platform demonstration will showcase how the combined technologies of Vineyard Networks and Napatech can be used by OEM vendors to build cost effective, application-aware network traffic capture, inspection and analysis appliances based on standard servers. 

“As network speeds, and sheer number of applications competing for those network resources, continues to increase, the need for highly scalable real-time DPI solutions has never been greater, said Derek Lownsbrough co-founder and CTO for Vineyard Networks. “We are extremely pleased to join Napatech at Futurecom to demonstrate our combined 20 Gbps solution.”

The demonstration at Futurecom will showcase the performance of the combined Vineyard Networks and Napatech DPI platform, which is capable of full line-rate 20 Gbps application recognition using only 8 cores on a standard multi-core server.  

“The power of standard servers is that they provide scalability”, said Erik Norup, President of Napatech Inc. “The performance of standard servers increases on an annual basis with more powerful CPU cores and more cores per standard server. This allows throughput to scale on a per CPU core basis in line with network loads and speeds. Napatech intelligent adapters guarantee that every packet will be captured for analysis at speeds up to 40 Gbps and we will continue to follow speed rates as they increase”. 

Napatech intelligent network adapters provide full line-rate capture and transmission from 1 Gbps to 40 Gbps with zero packet loss. In addition, Napatech network adapters provide layer 1-4 flow recognition, filtering and distribution to up to 64 server CPU cores for optimal utilization of available CPU resources.  

Vineyard’s NAVL (Network Application Visibility Library) is a next-generation DPI software engine that provides real-time layer 7 classification of network traffic. NAVL uses a combination of deep packet and deep flow inspection techniques to accurately identify today’s most common applications including Mobile, Social Networking, P2P, Instant Messaging, File Sharing, Enterprise and Web 2.0 applications. 

Vineyard and Napatech will be onsite offering demonstrations of this integrated solution in the Napatech booth #C24 at Futurecom in Rio de Janeiro, October 8-11, 2012.
