Endace launches new range of network monitoring systems for government agencies
Posted on 14-Apr-2011 09:07 | Filed under: News



Endace has announced the general availability of the locally designed and produced EndaceProbe 3820, the first 1U, feature-rich, data acquisition system capable of delivering sustained 4 x 10Gb/s lossless data acquisition with sub-6.5E-6 Joule-per-Packet power consumption.

Data acquisition, for the purposes of intelligence gathering, is widely regarded as one of the most resource intensive and technically challenging activities in intelligence networking. Historically characterised by ‘heavy-iron’ system deployments, involving expensive routers, sophisticated switching gear and custom systems, a radical overhaul of the architecture has been long overdue.

Based on breakthrough technological innovation at the University of Waikato, the EndaceProbe 3820 is a 1U, 19”, 25KG system that guarantees continuous lossless packet capture on 4 highly configurable 10Gb/s monitoring ports. Each monitoring port can be configured to receive and transmit a wide range of different framing formats, including SONET (OC-192) and 10GbE LAN/WAN. Monitoring support is provided for both channelised and unchannelised SONET, as well as full visibility into potential covert channels.

The Endace 3820 is designed to be deployed in secure environments as part an integrated data acquisition and analytics ‘fabric’. Like all Endace Systems, the 3820 leverages Endace’s 3 layer technology architecture to deliver full platform-application separation. The platform uses FPGA technology, tightly integrated into commodity multi-core Intel hardware, Endace OSm, which delivers central management capability and a powerful multi-application hosting environment into which agencies can easily deploy custom packet classification and filtering applications.

Neil Livingston, Chief Product Officer at Endace said “We’ve worked closely with our government intelligence customers over the last ten years and have built up an intimate understanding of their feature, performance and SWaP requirements. The 3820 brings those requirements to life and is redefining how government customers think about data acquisition.” He continues “The ability to provide such a rich set of functionality in such a lightweight, low power unit represents a major step forward for customers trying to monitor heterogeneous network environments.”

Key features of the EndaceProbe 3820 include:

• Four individually configurable Rx interfaces
• Four individually configurable Tx interfaces
• Full bandwidth, minimum packet size on all interfaces simultaneously
• Full support for custom packet classification and distribution algorithms
• Access to SONET/SDH channel structures without the need for external switches or routers
• Access to all SONET/SDH overheads for complete channel inspection
• Low rack space utilisation (1U), and ultra-low power consumption (6.25 uJoule/packet)
• Hardware-based time-stamping to +/- 7.5nSec resolution
• Single SKU coverage for the broadest range of interface types and speeds
• Central management capability for fabric deployments
• Open multi-application hosting environment
• 4TB of onboard RAID storage
