Texas A&M University's Real Time Distributed Systems Lab Selects Bivio Networks to Enable Cutting Edge Network Research

DPI-Enabled Platform to Spur Progress Toward Alert System for Network Threats

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - Bivio Networks, the leader in networking systems for deep packet inspection (DPI)-enabled applications and services essential for network security, visibility, control and monetization, today announced the company has deployed the Bivio Networks 7500 DPI networking platform in Texas A&M's Real Time Distributed Systems Lab to support leading-edge network defense research.

Established by Dr. Steven Liu in 1989, the Real Time Distributed Systems Lab focuses on developing and deploying an advanced computing framework that enables next-generation network defense and protection solutions, such as an early alert system for large-scale network threats.

"We conduct high-risk, high return research at the Real Time Distributed Systems Lab that will result in greatly improved security for large-scale networks," said Dr. Steve Liu, computer science professor and director of the Real Time Distributed Systems Lab at Texas A&M University. "We considered several network appliance vendors and opted for the solution that provided one of the most appropriate and flexible computing and networking architectures for us to implement our advanced algorithms for enterprise network security management."

Prior to deploying a Bivio Networks DPI-enabled platform, Dr. Liu and his team struggled with the limitations of their legacy system, which impeded the use of ever more sophisticated algorithms used to identify and track unknown and new patterns in network traffic. The Bivio platform allows the Lab to overcome this impediment and provides an architecture with multi-dimensional networking and computational scaling capabilities to analyze extremely large amounts of diverse network traffic at line rates.

"Bivio Networks is pleased to partner with Texas A&M and the Real Time Distributed Systems Lab as its research team identifies innovative, holistic approaches to today's most pressing challenges in systems design and modeling as well as bio-medical measurement and characterization," said Dr. Elan Amir, president and CEO, Bivio Networks. "The selection of the Bivio 7500 demonstrates that our DPI-enabled networking platforms are well-suited to operate in the most demanding research environments."
