Mellanox NPS-400 Processor Deliver 400 Gbps

Mellanox Technologies reported unprecedented packet processing performance of its NPS-400 Network Processor when using its newly released Deep Packet Inspection and Stateful Packet Processing software libraries.

Mellanox said these new software libraries, coupled with the hardware acceleration capabilities of the NPS-400, enable Deep Packet Inspection processing for application recognition at record breaking processing rates of up to 400Gbps, in conjunction with handling of 100 million flows with an average packet size of 400 bytes.

These processing capabilities could be used for Intrusion Detection Systems and Intrusion Prevention Systems and to accelerate processing capabilities for switch routers.

“Qosmos is very excited to collaborate with Mellanox providing a record breaking performance of Stateful Packet Processing and Deep Packet Inspection at 400Gb/s on the Mellanox NPS-400 solution,” said Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO of Qosmos. “Deep Packet Inspection drives L7 applications intelligence in the network and we expect further deployment of L7 services at more and more places in the network.”
