Qosmos and Wind River are "working together to advance network intelligence through flow classification DPI within the Wind River Intelligent Network Platform - a comprehensive embedded software platform for the development of sophisticated network equipment that can accelerate and secure the flood of traffic for current and future networks".
"The Qosmos flow classification DPI technology is provided as a Software Development Kit (SDK) composed of software libraries and tools that are easily integrated into new or existing solutions. Developers benefit from market-leading IP flow parsing technology to accelerate the delivery of application-aware solutions with Identification of 1,100+ protocols and applications Extraction of 6,000+ protocol and application metadata and Real time traffic analysis at 10, 40, 100 Gbps" - [see chart above, taken from Wind River webinar - here].
Wind River announced in a separate message a "New data plane software engine for network flow analysis delivers visibility into real-time network traffic for smarter traffic management":
"Wind River Flow Analysis Engine is a set of software libraries and tools that enable deep visibility into Layers 4 – 7 traffic flows, including real-time packet classification and protocol and application identification .. The addition of Wind River Flow Analysis Engine joins the existing Wind River Application Acceleration Engine and Wind River Content Inspection Engine to create a high performance and fully integrated deep packet inspection solution. Wind River Intelligent Network Platform is optimized for Intel® architecture, including the latest Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure, and is integrated with the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK)".
