Qosmos next-generation DPI products provide native support for new and updated IPv6 communication protocols for seamless traffic analysis
Network Intelligence technology provider Qosmos (www.qosmos.com) today announced that its line of next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) products natively supports the IPv6 protocol. Qosmos is the first DPI engine to natively support IPv6 and all the transition mechanisms between IPv4 and IPv6. The capability has been in place since the inception of Qosmos technology more than ten years ago and its strategic importance is highlighted by the current worldwide migration to IPv6.
In recent years, the explosion in use of mobile-ready devices such as smart phones, tablet computers, and laptops has rapidly depleted the pool of IPv4 addresses, restricting growth in major markets. As service providers and their vendors rush to accommodate the final switchover to the IPv6 protocol to compensate for this shortage, it is imperative that DPI solutions be able to detect and translate them properly. With support of the new protocol standard on-board, Qosmos’ solution and network equipment provider customers can be assured their own solutions will fully support the new global standard.
“According to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, the number of devices connected to IP networks will be nearly three times as high as the global population in 2016. The IPv6 launch marks the official “opening” of the next wave of network addresses to accommodate this explosion in growth. It is an important milestone, and puts the spotlight on the importance of DPI as an essential enabling technology in managing and monetizing the increase in traffic that this growth will bring.”
Qosmos transforms networks into information sources and enables entirely new services and applications. The company’s Network Intelligence (NI) technology recognizes thousands of communication protocols and metadata attributes for the most accurate picture of real-time data activity on networks. Qosmos NI components are used by vendors in telecommunications and cybersecurity to build next-generation solutions where real-time intelligence is critical, such as traffic optimization, Quality of Service, analytics, firewalls, cyber defense and more, making them more secure, efficient and profitable. www.qosmos.com
