Qosmos ixEngine Architecture overview

Decoding engine

  • Identification of protocol and applications behind each IP Flows using stateful inspection and heuristic analysis
  • Extraction of metadata from protocols (e.g. volume, delay, jitter etc) and applications (e.g. name of file streamed on a website)

Protocol Plugin Bundle

Advanced Protocol Plugin Creator

  • Allows users to develop custom protocol plugins that integrate in the ixEngine framework.

Protocol Watch and Updates

  • Continuous watch of protocols and applications, and update of ixEngine protocol plugins when new versions appear (e.g. Messenger).

New Protocols On Demand

  • Delivery of new protocol plugins including protocol and application classification + metadata extraction.
