BRNO, CZECH REPUBLIC October 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Continuous growth of computer networks puts higher demands on their monitoring, security and testing. The problem can be solved by purchasing specialized dedicated hardware, but higher price and limited flexibility are typical disadvantages of this approach. Other option is to use commodity hardware, which is cheap and flexible, but it does not provide sufficient performance. INVEA-TECH company decided to take advantages of both solutions and combine commodity hardware with high performance network interface card accelerated by latest Xilinx Virtex FPGA programmable chip.
In an effort to constantly improve their products and to satisfy customer needs, INVEA-TECH released a new product intended for developing applications for network monitoring, network security and network testing. Petr Kastovsky, INVEA-TECH FPGA System Product Manager, commented the product as follows: "We made use of commodity hardware and programmable FPGA chips for our product. By using combination of these technologies we are able to provide flexible, high performance and reasonably priced solution for wire-speed network traffic processing. Thanks to the API it is possible to use HANIC for development of turnkey applications for network monitoring, network security and network testing. We bring high added value and technological advantage to our customers."
Features and benefits:
* Per-port configurable network traffic sampling, filtering and cropping
* Precise timestamping, optionally with external PPS synchronization
* Proprietary zero packet loss API for packet forwarding to host RAM
* Hardware support for NetFlow/IPFIX statistics calculation
* Support for 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet
