Qosmos Collaborates with Wind River for Network Intelligence and Deep Packet Inspection

Summary:  Qosmos strengthens Wind River Intelligent Network Platform with additional DPI technologies for accelerated traffic flow classification, to give equipment providers instant application- and user-level awareness.


PARIS, France – February 21st, 2013 – Qosmos, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), and Wind River are working together to advance network intelligence through flow classification DPI within the Wind River Intelligent Network Platform.

The Wind River Intelligent Network Platform is a comprehensive embedded software platform for the development of sophisticated network equipment that can accelerate and secure the flood of traffic for current and future networks. The platform is comprised of software that consists of a consolidated management and data plane system, and includes software engines that provide fast packet acceleration, pattern matching and other DPI capabilities. Integrated with the Wind River Intelligent Network Platform software, Qosmos extends existing data plane capabilities by providing additional DPI technologies used to manage traffic flow-classification. This is especially interesting for vendors of cyber security and traffic shaping solutions.

The Qosmos flow classification DPI technology is provided as a Software Development Kit (SDK) composed of software libraries and tools that are easily integrated into new or existing solutions. Developers benefit from market-leading IP flow parsing technology to accelerate the delivery of application-aware solutions.

Key features include:

  • Identification of 1,100+ protocols and applications
  • Extraction of 6,000+ protocol and application metadata
  • Real time traffic analysis at 10, 40, 100 Gbps
  • Optimized fast path performance based on Intel® Data Plane Development Kit


“The increasing complexities of today’s networks, combined with an insatiable demand for more bandwidth, make DPI and network intelligence must-have technologies for vendors in telecoms and security,” said Qosmos CEO Thibaut Bechetoille. “With Wind River and our DPI technologies, users of the Wind River Intelligent Network Platform get application- and user-level awareness without sacrificing, speed, accuracy or performance, accelerating their time to market and providing competitive advantage.”    

“Wind River Intelligent Network Platform helps customers address ongoing network traffic challenges and prepare to scale for growing needs, such as delivering greater network intelligence,” said Paul Senyshyn, senior director of communication platforms at Wind River. “By combining proven DPI technologies from Qosmos with Wind River acceleration technologies, we’re helping customers leverage state-of-the art DPI and reach higher levels of performance. On top of that, our comprehensive suite of development tools and global support provides customers a full featured runtime and development environment that speeds application development and ensures a top notch experience that comes with a commercial-grade offering.”

Demonstrations of Wind River Intelligent Network Platform with embedded Qosmos DPI technologies will be available at Qosmos booth #5H20, hall 5 at Mobile World Congress, February 25 – 28, and at Qosmos booth #1059 at RSA Conference USA February 25 – March 1st.
