Tilera Chooses Procera Networks' NAVL Engine for SDN and NFV Architectures

Procera's NAVL Network Intelligence Software Addresses SDN and NFV Environments With Tilera's TILEncore-Gx Intelligent Application Adapters

BARCELONA, SPAIN and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) -  (Mobile World Congress and RSA®) -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Internet Intelligence company, and Tilera® Corporation, the leader in high-performance, power-efficient computing, today announced the availability of DPI-on-a-NIC for high performance deep packet intelligence. The evolution to network architectures such as Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is accelerating the need for higher performance processing and deep application intelligence in traffic Layers 4 through 7 (L4-7). This integrated solution for SDN and NFV environments combines Procera's Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) software development kit with Tilera's TILEncore-Gx Intelligent Application Adapters and ART software framework on a Network Interface Card (NIC).

The unique combination of Tilera and Procera's solutions enables an effortless upgrade of existing networking equipment by offering a low power, high performance services blade, targeted at virtualized networks that are moving toward a standard server model. By forwarding traffic flows to Procera's NAVL engine, Tilera achieves a URL filtering performance of over 350,000 new, unique URL's per second, and a network monitoring performance of up to 80Gbps with the integrated solution.

"There is a growing demand for high-throughput, accurate and real-time intelligence to enable network optimization and tiered billing within these new virtualized environments," said Joe Digiovanni, Director of Business Development at Procera Networks. "Application types are exploding in service provider and enterprise networks, and Procera's NAVL engine provides the accuracy, breadth of applications and protocols support needed by enterprise and service provider customers alike."

"The migration to virtualization places more computational overhead on x86 servers for complex data plane applications," said Bob Doud, director of processor strategy, Tilera Corporation. "By offloading data plane portions of NFV to programmable data plane acceleration adapters such as our TILEncore-Gx, customers can realize the performance and flexibility they are hoping to achieve through virtualization. The combination of Tilera's hardware and Procera's software solutions provide a scalable DPI offload model that can be implemented in a server environment."

NFV and SDN architectures use standard server hardware to implement networking and security workloads. In those workloads, L4-7 traffic processing needs are dramatically increasing across a range of applications such as load balancing, cyber security, traffic management, VXLAN classification, user based QoE, service-aware networking and more. The TILEncore-Gx Intelligent Application Adapter card running Procera's NAVL significantly accelerates virtual functions using programmable flow classification in standard servers.

Procera's NAVL is an easily integrated embedded intelligence engine for OEMs that provides real-time, Layer-7 classification of network application traffic and metadata extraction in a reliable, scalable and cost-effective way to deliver industry leading coverage and accuracy. NAVL enhances telecommunications providers' abilities to deliver a variety of application-aware functions to ensure equitable access to resources by all users and to create tiered classes of service for billing and real-time, Layer-7 classification of network application traffic.

Tilera and Procera Networks will demonstrate these capabilities at RSA in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Center, February 24-27, 2014 in Tilera's booth #2320, South Expo Hall; Procera will be showcasing a NAVL performance demo at booth #2321, South Expo Hall. Procera is demonstrating its Insights web-based data visualization platform and NFV solutions at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona February 24-27 at stand # 5J30.
