DPI Announcements: APconnections has a "Better DPI Engine"

APconnections (known as NetEqualizer) announced "a technology breakthrough resulting in a Better DPI Engine .. Our Better DPI Engine leverages state-of-the-art Linux kernel utilities and kernel threading mechanisms to optimize pattern recognition and analysis. With kernel threading, cloning, and a high-end Intel SMP processor, we achieve nearly seamless processing (latency of less than 1 millisecond). Many of our competitors have to use higher-priced, semi-custom chipsets and a technology called ASIC to achieve these speeds".

Art Reisman, CTO and Co-founder said: "We are excited about the potential of our Better DPI Engine. Any type of pattern you want to look at in real-time can now be done at one tenth (1/10th) the cost of the ASIC class of shapers. There are hundreds of uses for this engine, and we anticipate leveraging this technology further in the future".

  1. I'm a little confused by this article, in the DPI space there are several vendors doing Layer 7 inspection engines in standard intel hardware, including Procera Networks (, Sandvine (, and possibly Allot Communications ( I think the last one is using some sort of network processor these days.

    These guys all have rates in excess of Procera's case they are in the 300Gbps range these whats the news here?
