BRNO, CZECH, REPUBLIC, February 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Increasing demands on throughput of high-speed network appliances and backbone links very often drives replacement of physical infrastructure with a new one using more advanced technologies. Nowadays, 10G Ethernet is being replaced with 40G and 100G Ethernet.
Petr Kaštovský, FPGA product manager, commented the situation as follows: "Availability of 40G and 100G Ethernet affects mainly companies using or producing solutions for high-speed network traffic processing. For these companies, it is a matter of life and death to react fast enough and innovate their infrastructure and/or products so that they would support these new technologies. That is why INVEA-TECH puts eminent effort into developing state-of-the-art network adapters and applications for 40G and 100G Ethernet, which are now available. That allows our customers to be ahead of the game and succeed in the high-speed networking market."
The most distinctive benefit of INVEA-TECH adapters is the ability to process traffic at wire-speed and flexibility that enables their deployment in many application areas. The ability to distribute network traffic over multiple CPU cores, filter it and generate test traffic makes the adapters ideal for packet capture solutions, lawful interception applications, IDS/IPS systems, network testers and more.

Technologies and adapters were developed in cooperation with CESNET within the Alfa programme of TACR (Technological Agency of the Czech Republic). Furthermore, long-time experience of both INVEA-TECH and CESNET with FPGA technology and high-speed networks guarantees high-quality results.
The most important features of INVEA-TECH appliances are summarized in the following points:
• Support of 40G and 100G Ethernet technologies
• Use of the latest high-performance Xilinx Virtex 7 FPGA chips
• Traffic processing on commodity multicore CPUs
• PCI Express Gen 3 bus allowing to transfer all 40G/100G traffic to host memory
• Lossless wire-speed traffic processing regardless of the packets' length
• Available applications that provide useful and sophisticated features
• Adapters and appliances can be used in many scenarios ranging from packet capture solutions to hardware accelerated lawful interception solutions
INVEA-TECH is a leading producer of comprehensive solutions for high-speed networks including 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet. The portfolio of the company focuses on solutions for accelerating high-speed network applications using FPGA technology that are suitable both for commercial and R&D sphere.
CESNET is a Czech NREN operator with extensive and modern network infrastructure that allows to test all 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet technologies. CESNET was one of the first operators in testing 100G Ethernet technology in practice. Moreover, CESNET employs very strong internal development team with long-time experience with FPGA technology and high-speed networks.
