Shanghai Telecom Deploys Narus to Detect "Rogue" VoIP Traffic

Shanghai Telecom is deploying Narus' "NarusInsight" IP traffic processing system to detect and mitigate "rogue" VoIP traffic on their network.

NarusInsight performs deep-packet inspection (layers 2 through 7) of IP traffic, while correlating across every link of the network.

The contract marks Narus' first installation in China, and comes on the heels of an unprecedented agreement with the China Information Technology Security Certification Center (CNITSEC), which recently certified NarusInsight to protect China's major telecom carriers against network attacks.

Designed in conjunction with a mitigation system from local Chinese partner and system integration from CommVerge Solutions, the Shanghai Telecom system leverages NarusInsight's VoIP Discovery application module to detect and analyze incoming VoIP traffic to correctly determine whether that traffic is authorized or not.

If the VoIP traffic proves to be unauthorized, NarusInsight alerts the mitigation system to take action and block the traffic.
