Paris, France (PRWEB) August 29, 2011
Qosmos (http://www.qosmos.com), the leading provider of Network Intelligence (NI) technology and 6WIND (http://www.6wind.com), the industry standard for commercial multicore packet processing software, today announced a technology partnership between the two companies. With tight integration between the companies products, network equipment providers can add Qosmos real-time NI capabilities and 6WINDs advanced, multicore packet acceleration to their solutions, benefitting from proven interoperability between the two complementary technologies. This accelerates time to market for advanced mobile, cyber security and network applications.
Networking applications such as intrusion prevention and detection systems, mobile video compression, and 4G policy and charging enforcement (PCEF) require advanced DPI technology accelerated by high-performance packet processing. These functions need to be performed at wire-speed (10Gbps or 40Gbps today, with higher speeds in the future), requiring the use of highly-integrated solutions optimized for system-level performance.
Qosmos Network Intelligence technology identifies and extracts data traveling over networks in real time, providing a true picture of its purpose, use and value. 6WINDs 6WINDGate software accelerates packet processing for networking applications, delivering up to a 10x performance improvement compared to standard operating system stacks with full portability across multicore architectures. Networking applications will benefit from the combination of Qosmos high-performance network traffic extraction and parsing and 6WINDs packet acceleration, achieving accelerated time to market thanks to the use of a pre-integrated solution as well as optimized cost-performance, integration and efficiency.
In todays highly competitive market, vendors no longer have the luxury of developing certain capabilities in-house, said Thibaut Bechetoille, president and CEO of Qosmos. To get applications to market faster, they must rely on technology specialists such as Qosmos and 6WIND to provide key capabilities while maintaining a focus on their own core competencies. This practice removes the considerable time, cost and risk of trying to develop such sophisticated capabilities internally.
The partnership between 6WIND and Qosmos offers OEMs a highly-efficient solution for high-performance Network Intelligence, said Eric Carm
