Adax and Vineyard Networks Announce DPI Partnership

Adax Cavium-Based Packet Processing Controllers Combine With Vineyard Networks to Deliver Unmatched Intelligence and Performance for Deep Packet Inspection

OAKLAND CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2012) - Adax (, an industry leader in high-performance packet-processing, security and network infrastructure hardware, is pleased to announce its close working partnership with Vineyard Networks ( Vineyard is a global leader in next-generation Deep Packet Inspection software solutions. Together Adax and Vineyard deliver a combination that easily integrates into OEM and VAS solutions for Policy Control and Traffic Shaping, Optimization and Redirection.

Today's network service providers expect LTE network nodes to extract extensive sets of metadata and application attributes from network traffic in real-time. This extraction enables a new generation of services including Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and Over-The-Top (OTT) services, such as Video-On-Demand. The Adax Pkt-AMC and Pkt2-PCIe Cavium-based controllers provide front-end intelligent processing, delivering line speed packet processing for these demanding telecom applications across a range of platforms, such as ATCA blades, AMC cards or PCIe rack mount servers. The functionality of Adax' controllers can now be extended by integrating Vineyard's DPI engine, Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL).

NAVL is an advanced, next-generation DPI software engine that easily integrates into third party network infrastructure solutions, providing real-time Layer 7 classification of network traffic. NAVL uses a combination of deep packet and deep flow inspection techniques to accurately identify today's most common applications including Mobile, Social Networking, P2P, Instant Messaging, File Sharing, Enterprise and Web 2.0 applications. This deep classification functionality is necessary to granularly set and enforce policies, provide parental control, conduct lawful interception and support on-line charging functions.

"Adax is very pleased with the close working relationship developing between us and Vineyard," says Drew Sproul, marketing director at Adax. "Vineyard is a leading supplier of DPI technology on Cavium processors and the integration with Adax high-performance packet processing cards is a winning combination for our customers."

"Our partnership with Adax is perfectly aligned with our vision of powering the next-generation of DPI enabled platforms," says Jason Richards, CEO Vineyard Networks. "Together, our joint customers get best-of-breed in both software and hardware and the expertise, support, and commitment to achieve swift customer application integration and development."
