Sensory Networks, a provider of pattern matching software
technology, announced the launch of its HyperScan engine with optimized support
for the OCTEON II MIPS64 multi-core processor series from Cavium, a provider of
semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking,
communications, and the digital home.
The new release of HyperScan supports dual-core to
32-core OCTEON II processors, and when benchmarked with a database of complex
regular expressions, targeted at intrusion prevention from a tier-1 equipment
vendor, delivered Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) throughput of 3Gbps using just
two OCTEON II cores, while also capable of delivering over 40Gbps on a 32-core
OCTEON II processor with linear scalability.
We’ve made tremendous progress in making HyperScan
agnostic to any type of CPU architecture and operating system, while ensuring
solid DPI performance and scalability,” said Sab Gosal, CEO of Sensory Networks.
While support for the OCTEON II processor series enables
us to meet our customers’ immediate needs, we look forward to continuing to
work with Cavium on further advancing the HyperScan-OCTEON II solution,” Gosal
The content inspection performance and linear
scalability, delivered by Sensory Networks’ HyperScan, is most impressive and
much needed in a market where demand for DPI-driven applications such as
security, URL filtering and application recognition is growing rapidly,” said
John Bromhead, director of Product Marketing at Cavium.
HyperScan is a portable, easy-to-integrate software
pattern matching engine intended for integration into networking and security
OEM platforms. The engine supports a wide range of applications that rely on
pattern matching tasks, whether it is scanning for just a single pattern, or a
large database comprising hundreds of thousands of patterns.
This software solution significantly streamlines the
engineering and design process by giving equipment vendors the opportunity to
perform a one-time integration, into a system release, thereby allowing
HyperScan to be used for an entire product line, low-end to high-end. The
opportunity to also upgrade legacy products, already installed in the field,
provides for further market-competitive gains.
Cavium Networks recently announced that ZyXEL has
the Cavium Networks OCTEON Plus and OCTEON II processor technology across
a broad range of ZyXEL’s Integrated Service Gateway (ISG), and Next Generation
Firewalls and UTM appliances (USG).
ZyXEL’s ZyWALL technology deployed in these platforms
protects more than 400,000 businesses worldwide.
