The Deep Packet Inspection spectrum: Evolution from technology development to plug-and-play products
Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) has been around for a while and many companies in a myriad of industries have DPI capabilities in their products. For example, intrusion detection and virus scanning are both common technologies that utilize DPI to identify...
The evolution of Security and Information Event Management systems
Security and Information Event Management (SIEM) systems are changing in order to protect enterprises that increasingly rely on social media and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies.
Marching toward 40 Gb Ethernet testing
Curt talks to Ixia experts about what's next for 40G test.
Deep Packet Inspection use cases: Lawful Intercept and CALEA compliance
In this edition of Network Intelligence, Curt investigates how to use DPI in tandem with the long arm of the law.
ATCA load balancing at 40 Gbps
40G AdvancedTCA systems pack a lot of punch, but its all for naught if packets are caught in bottlenecks. Curt investigates some hardware and software load balancing solutions to keep the 40 Gbps flow moving.
Architecture, modeling, coordination, and synchronization of multicore applications
Multicore architectures create design problems outside of the hardware world; they produce challenges in multicore software design as well. In this issue's Network Intelligence column, Curt examines architecture options for multicore software, including software reworking and parallel programming techniques.
Software framework for custom Network Intelligence applications
Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) is poised to play a pivotal role in the proliferation of Network Intelligence (and intelligent networks). To be most effective across the diverse array of use cases that networks contain, however, custom software frameworks for DPI must be developed to maximized capabilities.
Network intelligence primer
Network intelligence in the next-generation: Why is it important and where is it taking us?
Managing the transition to multicore: Part I
In part one of the two part series Curt speaks with David Stewart of CriticalBlue about a software that maps out the route for the “migration to multicore.”
Deep Packet Inspection puts its stamp on an evolving Internet
As the Internet evolves and expands, new technologies have to be adopted to satisfy the seemingly inexhaustible hunger for bandwidth. However, this transition from traditional "dumb pipe" to "intelligent network" must be governed by popular consensus, not special interests.
Internet traffic trends and Deep Packet Inspection at multi-gigabit data rates
As Internet traffic morphs, Internet infrastructure must adapt.
Switching at the speed of light II
Yes, it IS light, but Direct Broadcast Optical Interconnect is no lightweight when stacked up against electromagnetic signaling.
