Summary: Ecosystem of equipment makers and software vendors can leverage ready-to-use Qosmos DPI components to rapidly build application-aware solutions for network operators, cloud service providers and enterprises.
PARIS, France, January 7, 2014 – Qosmos, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology for use in physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures, today announced that it has joined the Intel® Network Builders program as an inaugural member. This initiative was established to make it easier for vendors to build new solutions based on Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
Qosmos is the only pure-play OEM vendor of DPI-based Network Intelligence technology. Its software development kit and probes recognize thousands of communication protocols and metadata attributes, creating an information layer that gives the most accurate picture of real-time data activity on networks. Equipment makers and software vendors use Qosmos to get real-time traffic intelligence, accelerate time to market and ensure continuous protocol signature updates.
Qosmos’ involvement in the Intel® Network Builders program is intended to encourage innovation, reduce development efforts, advance open networking standards, and increase interoperability.
Value-added services, security products, and network functions must have access to continuous, detailed, real-time information about network traffic. Qosmos technology creates this application-awareness and therefore constitutes an essential innovation enabler for SDN & NFV applications.
“We are pleased to work with Intel who recognizes the key role of our technology to accelerate the transformation of networks and make it easier to build, enhance, and operate SDN and NFV-based infrastructures”, said Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO at Qosmos.
“Bringing DPI to service-aware networks will give service providers uncompromising security and greater agility in addressing increasing demands”, said Sandra Rivera, director of market development, Intel Communications and Storage Infrastructure Group. “We look forward to working with Qosmos to show how these capabilities can be implemented in SDN and NFV environments.”
About Qosmos Qosmos turns networks into information sources, making them application- and service-aware. The company’s award-winning Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Layer 7 Network Intelligence (NI) technologies recognize thousands of communication protocols and metadata attributes, creating an essential information layer that gives the most accurate picture of real-time data activity on networks.
Market-leading equipment makers, specialized software vendors and cloud service providers embed Qosmos in telco and enterprise solutions where real-time Layer 7 intelligence is critical, such as traffic optimization, policy management, quality of experience, analytics, firewalls, cyber defense and more. Qosmos software development kit and probes can be used in all environments – physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures – to accelerate time to market and ensure continuous signature updates.
