A deep packet inspection (DPI) software framework to enable network equipment providers (NEPs) to accelerate development and delivery of applications that make use of DPI


  • Designed to save time and boost performance, FlowEngine combines best-in-class software components with Continuous Computing load balancing and Trillium monitoring software with an extensive range of application intelligence software from Qosmos and packet processing software from 6WIND and Wind River
  • Provides a foundation allowing users new to network intelligence to rapidly create advanced applications that run on the company's carrier-class, standards-based FlexTCA hardware platforms
  • Originally built on Continuous Computing's field-proven 10G FlexPacketATCA-PP50 DPI blade, FlowEngine is now coming to the 40GbE FlexTCA platforms delivering a range of solutions from 40-320Gbps capacity
  • The FlowEngine framework, which delivers the core capabilities required for network intelligence applications in markets such as video optimization, policy enforcement and Internet offload, is comprised of five key elements
  • Pre-processing, including defragmentation and de-tunneling of packets
  • Key generation from one or more L4 header parameters
  • Flow table, which lists known flows and can track 1M plus flows per blade
  • Rules engine to create and apply policies and actions to packets
  • Classification engine, to identify unknown packets and flows
