Bivio Networks Unveils 10 Gbps Deep Packet Inspection Appliance

Bivio Networks, a start-up based in Pleasanton, California, is expanding its family of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) appliances with the introduction of the Bivio 7000 Series and Bivio 6500 Series platforms.

The new Bivio 7000 Series and Bivio 6500 Series network appliance platforms deliver 10 Gbps deep packet inspection capabilities starting at price points below $10,000. Bivio's new platforms enable both standard-Linux and custom application development and integration within the widely adopted BivOS networking and management execution environment.

The platforms are targeted at security application vendors, network equipment manufacturers, federal government agencies needing to deploy high-performance platforms that can support security applications such as network monitoring, analysis, surveillance, content filtering, and leak prevention as well as service providers offering policy-centric managed security, storage, voice, and mobility services to large financial and enterprise customers.

The Bivio 7000 Series is designed for customers that have developed Linux-based networking applications with demanding packet processing requirements. The appliance uses parallel application execution engines to provide massive packet processing capabilities in a 2U chassis form factor.

The Bivio 6500 Series of network appliance platforms are designed specifically for custom application development within a non-Linux operating environment. As with all Bivio products, the Bivio 6500 features the BiviOS operating system that provides management capabilities.

Both the Bivio 7000 Series and Bivio 6500 Series will be available in early Q2 2007.
