Procera Networks Offers New NAVL 4.0 DPI Engine as SDK for License to OEMs
High-Performance, Fully-Featured Layer 7 DPI SDK Enables New Paths to
Revenue Generation and Customer Retention
FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Procera Networks, Inc.
(NASDAQ: PKT), the global intelligent policy enforcement company,
today announced availability of its Network Application Visibility
Library (NAVL) 4.0, enabling "Intelligence Everywhere" through a
software development kit (SDK) for OEM enterprise and
telecommunications equipment vendors. The latest version of the Layer
7 deep packet inspection (DPI) engine adds IPv6 support,
de-tunnelling of GTP traffic, improvements in metadata extraction,
and OEM industry-leading high performance throughput capabilities,
while conserving resources and enabling regular updates through the
NAVL plug-in architecture. NAVL 4.0 is easily integrated with both
off-the-shelf and custom platforms, and deployable in numerous
processors and processing architectures for ease of integration with
a variety of hardware.
"NAVL 4.0 represents a significant upgrade to an already
industry-leading Layer 7 DPI engine," said Angelo Comazzetto, senior
product manager at Sophos. "Integrating NAVL with Sophos UTM 9
greatly enhanced our value proposition to our customers and did so
with effective ease for them. By outsourcing in-house development of
Layer 7 application classification capabilities, we could focus more
intently on complete security and protection everywhere, resulting in
a quicker time to market for our UTM solutions."
New NAVL 4.0 features and capabilities include:
-- Industry-leading high-performance throughput capabilities - The NAVL
4.0 DPI engine can easily classify traffic at speeds well above
100Gbps, with minimal effect on network response times, latency or
-- Full IPv6Support - IPv6 is becoming more prevalent in network
deployments, and NAVL 4.0 includes extensions for native IPv6
applications. This dramatically simplifies integration for IPv6-ready
networking equipment, including CGN and IPv6 tunnelling
-- De-tunnelling GPRS Tunneling Protocols (GTP) - NAVL can look inside
these tunnels created between points on mobile networks to expose
ication types and names to NAVL users. This is very useful to
mobile carriers and mobile probe vendors, who were previously unable
to determine what application traffic was running over their networks
between these points. NAVL can now inspect the entire packet without
de-tunneling, improving performance and scalability for both mobile
and fixed line equipment vendors.
-- Metadata extraction improvements - Metadata extraction is an area
where NAVL really excels. Long able to extract metadata, or "data
about data" from packets, NAVL 4.0 now does so with advanced
techniques designed to provide even more granular metadata,
significantly reducing onboard resource consumption and increasing
processing speed and metadata extraction.
"NAVL 4.0 gives both enterprise and telco equipment vendors a
combination of unsurpassed application classification, in both
breadth and accuracy, with advanced metadata extraction and
simplicity of integration," said Derek Lownsbrough, vice president of
research and development at Procera. "This gives us the most
attractive Layer 7 DPI and application classification offering in the
market, enabling our customers and partners to add advanced
application-aware capabilities to their own solutions, while enabling
them to focus on what they do best."
Additional features of NAVL 4.0:
-- Even Easier Integration with Enterprise and Telco Platforms
-- NAVL 4.0 has the industry's lowest on-board resource requirements,
meaning that integrating vendors can add Layer 7 DPI, in addition
to many other functions, to their existing platforms, resulting in
both product enhancement and cost reduction.
-- NAVL 4.0 is delivered as an SDK that can be deployed in a number
of processors and processing architectures, including x86 32bit,
x86 64bit, Cavium Octeon, Octeon II, Octeon III, ARM, PowerPC,
Tilera and Freescale.
-- Ever-Expanding Application Signature Database
-- Procera engineers continue to add signatures on a near-daily
basis. A full list of the applications that NAVL classifies is
available on Procera's AppLabs site here.
Procera's NAVL 4.0 DPI engine and OEM products are the result of its
recent acquisition of Vineyard Networks.
