We have been awarded 2nd place in the Cooperation of the Year competition for our participation in the project Distributed System for Complex Monitoring of High-speed Networks.

Netcope Technologies has been cooperating with the academic association CESNET for years now. The awarded joint research project of CESNET and Netcope was Distributed System for Complex Monitoring of High-speed Networks, a project dedicated to development of distributed system for monitoring of 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet networks. One of the outcomes of the project is COMBO- 100G, an FPGA-based network interface controller. This unique piece of hardware was the first device of its kind capable of processing 100G Ethernet and is now successfully marketed all cross the world as NFB-100G.

Several executives of technology institutions and high ranking government officials were present at the ceremony, including Jan Mládek, the Minister of Industry and Trade of Czech Republic.
