100G/40G/10G Ethernet

The speed of network links is ever increasing. It is relevant in all network-related environments including data centers, backbone, and core links. Widely deployed 10G Ethernet is being replaced with 40G and , or directly 100G Ethernet. It poses great challenge for network operators, as they need to upgrade the infrastructure together with all corresponding equipment including monitoring appliances, security solutions etc.


In 10G networks, solutions based on commodity hardware lack the performance necessary to perform non-trivial tasks. Since 100G networks operate with ten times the volume of traffic, 10G solutions are not feasible any more. Those who plan to work with 100G traffic need to use more powerful and more intelligent tools. Netcope offers performance through hardware acceleration and intelligence through firmware with advanced features for network data processing. In combination with FPGA technology, Netcope cards can be used in multiple configurations:

to process data from 100G or 40G Ethernet links or to process network traffic from several 10G network interfaces with a single card if deployed in a high-density configuration. In other words, Netcope cards can handle the latest technologies (100G Ethernet and 40G Ethernet) and they allow building of a high-density solution, aggregating multiple 10G links using optical breakout cable into a single network interface of the card. Single piece of hardware can be redeployed in each scenario just by reloading a different firmware. This feature significantly simplifies transition plan and provides future investment protection.

Netcope Success Stories


NSF-100G2-Picomass-Netcope Network Traffic Monitoring

Picomass uses Netcope Session Filter in the IPS200 DPI solution because NSF is capable of offloading traffic to hardware. This makes real-time DPI on 100G networks possible.

Flowmon Networks Network Traffic Monitoring

Flowmon Networks aims to develop a new generation of NetFlow/IPFIX probes that can monitor and process traffic of 100GE high-speed networks. Because of that, Flowmon Networks needs to find a network card that would be able of handling 100 GE monitoring requirements.
