FPGA-Based Advanced Packet Processing Appliance
Thanks to its FPGA-based architecture, the NEOXPacketWolf is the ideal platform for advanced packet processing of network data up to 400G.
Designed to take advantage of advanced features such as Deduplication, Header Stripping, Packet Slicing and more. the PacketWolf serves as a complement to a Network Packet Broker, such as our NEOXPacketLion.
The traffic for processing usually comes from a Packet Broker, but can also come from other sources, and after processing is sent back by the PacketWolf on the same port.
The processing of the network packets is done on the FPGA in hardware and is performed lossless up to 400Gbps by the PacketWolf .
- Small form factor (1U)
- Up to 4x 100G QSFP28 interfaces
- Supports network data processing up to 400Gbps
- FPGA design and low latency
- Supports nanosecond timestamping
- Scalable and easy commissioning
VALUE ADDED FUNCTIONS
- Timestamping – A timestamp is applied to each processed package with nanosecond accuracy
- Deduplication – Removal of duplicate packets with a programmable deduplication window from 1 millisecond to 250 milliseconds
- Packet Slicing – Slicing a packet so that it contains only the desired number of bytes or information, including a programmable number of bytes of offset.
- Netflow Export – Conversion of metadata and flow records to standard Netflow formats such as NetFlow v5, v9 and IPFIX.
- Deep Packet Inspection – DPI inspects every data flow to identify protocols and applications
- Flow Shunting – A host application can make a decision to block certain IP flows via an API call based on the DPI results.
- Flow Mapping – A host application can route traffic flows (by adding VLAN tags) to specific analysis tools based on DPI results
- Protocol Header Stripping – Remove protocol headers (e.g. VXLAN, MPLS) and extract IP packet payloads for the benefit of analysis tools that cannot process them.
- Packet Masking – Overwriting personally identifiable information (PII) such as credit card numbers, passwords, and the like.
- Regex Matching – A method for finding and matching text patterns in packet data streams.
- GTP Filtering – Filtering of GTP packets by message type (e.g. mobility management, tunnel management, etc.)
- GTP Correlation – Monitoring traffic in a GTP tunnel while simultaneously matching and correlating all identified subscriber control and data sessions.
