If your organization has a lawful intercept appliance, then you know that this is a highly regulated market that is dealing with some of the most sensitive data one can imagine. So, when choosing a host CPU offload adapter for a lawful intercept appliance there are at least three key requirements to keep in mind.
1) The vendor you choose must have a sterling reputation for reliability and support. If they fail you, your entire company might fail.
2) The adapter must not lose a single packet. Remember you are trying to find the proverbial “needle in a haystack” so you must have access to the entire haystack or the missing part might just contain the needle.
3) The adapter must have very precise and fine grained packet filtering so you can key in on the exact packets that the law enforcement agency is trying to obtain.
