Roke Introduces NEBS Compliant 'Aquila'
By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor
Roke Manor Research has just unveiled 'Aquila' to the world. The NEBS Level 3 compliant product is a highly advanced content inspection probe that can be utilized for defense against cyber attacks.
Aquila is the first probe with a 100Gbps architecture, making it the only probe that can provide seamless scalability from 10Gbps to the latest 40Gbps and 100Gbps speeds, according to a press release. This gives law enforcement an inexpensive way to intercept 10Gbps internet links, as well as the ability to easily manage the most current high-speed interfaces.
Alan Burnett, product manager, at Roke Manor Research, stated, "The ability to monitor and collect relevant data more precisely is increasingly vital to reduce both cyber crime and support homeland security activity. Aquila will revolutionize this as increased data volumes can be processed faster, more precisely and cost effectively."
The release states that Aquila's patented search technology has the highest density data processing capability on the market, with less than half the footprint of comparable platforms.
Aquila's technology is the only probe that is designed to inspect all content, at all times with the ability to meet future network speed and application processing demands. Sophisticated filters that are incorporated into the probe allow for the identification process to take place much easier. These filters enable items of interest to be quickly identified, which may have been missed in the past because search requirements were not finely tuned.
Aquil is currently the sole telco grade intercept probe that is fully NEBS Compliant. Due to this compliance, the probe offers increased power efficiency and reduces air conditioning requirements.
