14 Jan 2016 Building cost effective 40Gbps IDS in to commodity servers

Many cyber intelligence and security solutions have failed to keep up with data growth and network speeds, particularly inside the network where rates can be significantly higher than at the border. Device stacking is one solution, but this complicates network architecture and management, increases points of failure, and increases overall CAPEX and OPEX. Read more


26 Oct 2015 Telesoft adds LR4 capabilities to their existing MPAC-IP 7000 Series

The recent launch of Telesoft’s MPAC-IP 7000 series represented another significant landmark in high throughput data processing. Expanding on a proven track record in 10Gb/s, 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s, Telesoft’s high-density solutions boast both 4x10Gbe and dual 100GbE ports to allow for Ethernet data processing from 40Gbps to 200Gbps on a single card.

24 Sep 2015 Extending IDS and IPS Throughput Capacity

The load on Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS) is increasing as data rates and the number of possible threats continue to rise. When these security devices become saturated, they drop packets. The more packets that get dropped the greater the statistical likelihood that one will contain a potential threat that will infiltrate your network and cause harm. Read more


27 Aug 2015 NFV Series (#2): Network Function Virtualisation, maximising your potential

The previous blog post in the Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) series described the need for an update to the complex and inefficient network architecture paradigm that preceded NFV. This blog post looks at the main benefits that this new network architecture provides operators. Read more


21 Aug 2015 Hardware Accelerator cards, a cost effective solution for expanding network capabilities

As data rates continue to rise a vertical expansion model becomes increasingly unsustainable for network operators. The high operating costs that come with adding more and more servers to cope with rising network demands can be avoided, however, with the use of hardware accelerator cards. Read more
