Enhance IntellaFlex XR network monitoring systems with high speed packet processing features that increase efficiency and visibility for security and performance monitoring solutions.
Introducing the HyperEngine
Each HyperEngine blade adds up to 200Gbps of high performance processing features to IntellaFlex XR monitoring systems. Traffic sources can be aggregated to the HyperEngine Packet Processor to perform advanced processing including deduplication, NetFlow generation, protocol header stripping, deep packet inspection or tunnel termination for virtual network monitoring.
Removing duplicate packets improves monitoring tool efficiency, accuracy, and recording space requirements. This enables monitoring tools to provide greater visibility while lowering overall costs.
IntellaFlex XR monitors network traffic and is an ideal source of NetFlow records for monitoring NetFlow traffic statistics. Offload processing from routers and other production equipment to increase efficiency and save costs; plus consolidating NetFlow sources reduces network traffic and simplifies the monitoring architecture.
The HyperEngine’s Deep Packet Inspection feature enables data privacy in support of compliance to HIPAA, PCI and internal best practices by protecting customer and employee personal data such as Social Security Numbers, cardholder data and/or employee records. DPI also provides the ability to search packets for cyber threats such as malware and forward suspicious packets to forensics tools for further investigation.
Inspects the packet payload looking for specific data patterns
Configurable actions include mask, forward or drop identified packets
Import Regular Expression (RegEx) signatures from a file
Variety of common RegEx signature templates provided
Protocol Header Stripping
The HyperEngine now supports Protocol Header Stripping as an additional service. Data packets are often encapsulated using protocol headers. While protocol headers are useful to direct packets to their final destination, they may not be needed or supported by the packet analyzers or other monitoring tools.
Supports VXLAN, GRE, NVGRE, GENEVE and ERSPAN I, II and III
Provides solution for 40G and 100G connections
Removing overlay encapsulations provides more efficient use of tools
HyperEngine can perform Deduplication and Protocol Header Stripping on each packet as it passes through a single Service Point (GRE, NVGRE and VXLAN only)
HyperEngine enables 16 internal service points across two high performance, multi-threaded network processors with flexible user selectable service options. These service points provide convenient configuration for deduplication, NetFlow generation, tunnel termination services, protocol header stripping and deep packet inspection.
