Bivio Networks Unveils Application Services Gateway

Company Introduces First Multi-Application, Comprehensive Solution for DPI-Enabled Services on Service Provider Networks

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - Bivio Networks, the leader in networking systems for deep packet inspection (DPI)-enabled applications and services, today announced the launch of its Application Services Gateway (ASG), the first DPI-based multi-application service platform. Targeted to wireline and mobile service providers, the ASG provides a comprehensive solution addressing both next-generation subscriber services creation and network infrastructure protection and management. Using a common device, customers now have an unparalleled ability to deploy both powerful subscriber-based services such as content-based filtering, processing and billing, managed security and parental control, as well as essential network operation services such as traffic and service management, monitoring and protection.

"New devices, usage patterns and applications are drastically changing the way networks are used and managed," said Dr. Elan Amir, CEO of Bivio Networks. "Unlike existing solutions that require multiple disparate devices, the Bivio ASG enables network service providers to implement powerful flow-based services and policies on a common platform, providing a richer, more personalized Internet experience for subscribers. This leads to increased revenue streams and customer loyalty, while also improving system resiliency and service continuity."

Designed for service provider network deployments, the Bivio ASG provides an integrated software suite of applications and services, bound together by a powerful DPI classification engine implementing multi-layer, multi-stage DPI and processing capabilities. Among many distinguishing features is the solution's ability to transparently combine network, application and subscriber-level knowledge to inspect, identify and enforce network traffic policies on a per-flow and per-user basis.

Example services and solutions enabled by the Bivio ASG include:

--  Parental control
--  Content filtering
--  Managed security
--  P2P traffic management
--  VoIP monitoring and control
--  Application usage policy enforcement
--  Anti-phishing/Anti-pharming
--  Content-based billing
--  Tiered services
    

Built on the Bivio 7000 DPI Application Platform, the ASG offers a powerful mix of functionality, scalability, extensibility and customization, making it the ideal platform for innovative service creation.

The ASG is the product of Bivio's recent acquisition of FlowInspect Srl., a developer of innovative DPI-enabled technologies, and will be generally available in the fourth quarter of 2009.
