In just three short months, the engineering team at Wind River has added new, amazing capabilities to the Wind River Intelligent Network Platform. These enhancements to the platform allow applications to go even deeper and faster than ever before.
When we first launched the platform, it included two data plane engines for packet acceleration and pattern matching. The two engines together created an incredible software-enabled solution to provide high-performance deep packet inspection (DPI) for network applications. We’ve now added a third data plane engine, the Flow Analysis Engine (FAE), which allows applications to incorporate even greater network intelligence. The Flow Analysis Engine offers complete visibility into network traffic in real time, including flow classification, protocol and application identification, and metadata extraction.
