COPENHAGEN, Denmark: Napatech, the global leader in intelligent network adapters, today provided details on their exhibition at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 25 – 28. Napatech will debut tunneling protocol and onboard PTP support, as well as demonstrate 100G throughput and the DeepFlow Telecom probe with its partner, Qosmos. These features and demos will showcase how the power of Napatech adapters can address the monitoring and analysis needs of the telecom industry.
The proliferation of smart mobile devices has led to increasing speeds and exponential growth in data traffic. Carriers must react quickly and adapt effectively in order to assure service performance for their customers. As Ethernet and IP networks are highly dynamic, telecom equipment vendors need scalable solutions that can monitor and analyze high-speed mobile networks in real-time.
Napatech will debut two new features that will address these issues. New tunneling protocol support extracts information from GTP and IP-in-IP tunnels to allow efficient analysis of applications and services used on mobile networks. Napatech adapters perform flow identification and intelligent distribution to multiple server CPU cores based on the contents of the tunnels, rather than on the tunnel itself. This enables Napatech telecom equipment vendors and their customers to accelerate their mobile data analysis application. Napatech’s existing features can also identify and distribute IP fragments that often result when tunneling in mobile networks.
Napatech will also debut onboard PTP support on 1G and 10G adapters, which have the advantage of being able to plug directly into the PTP network. These highly anticipated products make time synchronization implementation easier for OEM venders and end-users. The nanosecond precision time-stamping capabilities can precisely measure jitter and delay in mobile networks.
“Tunneling and onboard PTP support are powerful features for telecom equipment vendors who need to build mobile network monitoring products,” stated Erik Norup, President and CMO, Napatech. “With these new features, we can off-load and accelerate data analysis, allowing our customers to focus on optimizing the processing resources in their standard servers. This is critical to carriers providing superior service at an affordable cost.”
These new features will be revealed at Napatech’s exhibition booth with several demos. One will present 100G throughput with zero packet loss using Napatech adapters in a Dell PowerEdge R720. A joint demo with vendor Qosmos will demonstrate how a high performance Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) analysis solution can be provided using a standard server, Napatech adapters and Qosmos software.
