University of Electro-Communications Deploys Bivio Networks' DPI Platform for Its New Campus Network System

Bivio's 10Gbps DPI Application Platform to Enable Secure Collaboration, Information Exchange for Researchers and Students

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - Bivio Networks, a leading provider of network systems for securing, monitoring and controlling critical network infrastructure, today announced that it was selected by Japan's University of Electro-Communications for its Information Technology Center's new campus network system. To enable the performance and security enhancements required of the new network, Bivio Networks provided a high-performance Bivio 7500 DPI Application Platform and open source software applications.

The University plans to connect its intra-university network system for student research and education programs, known as the "Information Lifeline," to "SINET4," a Japanese nation-wide academic and research network, in 2011. Operated by the National Institute of Informatics in Japan, SINET4 is intended to promote intra-university collaboration and facilitate easy distribution of academic information.

"To foster innovation, students and university faculty must leverage information from diverse academic resources and collaborate with research communities inside and outside of the university's walls," said Dr. Elan Amir, president and CEO of Bivio Networks. "Bivio's DPI Application Platform will allow the University to address the security and performance challenges inherent to an intra-university network and allow the University of Electro-Communications to ensure a secure academic environment."

The Bivio DPI Application Platform is ideal for Linux-based networking applications with stringent packet processing requirements. It is a compact, high-performance networking system that combines a unique packet processing hardware architecture with a standard Linux-based execution environment and an operating system that implements various network control functionalities. 

The University selected the Bivio 7500 for its flexibility, high-level internal and external security, monitoring functions of transaction performance, and the system's compliance with relevant laws and regulations. In addition, the University makes use of eight (8) open-source cyber security applications certified on the platform through the Bivio Application Library.
