Mansfield, MA, October 12, 2012 – Accolade Technology, a leading developer of high performance packet processing adapters, today introduced the ANIC-40K-SP1, the first member of its family of 40 Gbps Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) Accelerators.
Integral to the ANIC-40K-SP1 is Accolade’s next generation FPGA based Advanced Packet Processor (APP) which features an advanced Classification, Packet Filtering and Load Balancing Engine. This engine, together with a scalable Action Control List (ACL) Memory, enables the management of greater than 8 million IP Sessions/Flows.
When deployed in Intrusion Detection (IDS) and Flow Management Applications, these advanced features enable the ANIC-40K-SP1 to Load Balance only IP Flows of interest directly to the relevant Host Core Processors while blocking, re-directing or bypassing other flows, all as dictated by Host managed ACL rules.
“The ANIC-40K-SP1 enables a Higher Performance and Scalable DPI Solution at a much lower cost than competing Network Processor (NPU) offload solutions, particularly for the rapidly growing and evolving Wireless Network Infrastructure,” said Robbie Dhillon, CEO of Accolade Technology.
ANIC-40K-SP1 Benefits over Network Processor DPI offload :
• Single Software Development and Support– Host Code Only !
• Simple API for set-up and ACL management
• Deterministic Performance
• Lower Power Consumption
The ANIC-40K-SP1 is now available for general release and shipping to OEM customers with a software development kit including a comprehensive API and Linux drivers.
