ROMSEY, England, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Roke Manor Research today launches 'Aquila', the world's most advanced content inspection probe for lawful intercept and cyber defence.
Aquila is the first probe with a 100Gbps architecture, making it the only one to offer seamless scalability from 10Gbps to the latest 40Gbps and 100Gbps speeds. This gives law enforcement a cost-effective route to intercept standard 10Gbps internet links, as well as the ability to handle the very latest high-speed interfaces.
Aquila's patented search technology has the highest density data processing capability on the market, with less than half the footprint of comparable platforms. Increased processing density and built-in scalability up to 100Gbps reduces the whole life costs through times of uncertainty and expansion.
Aquila's technology firsts include:
Only probe designed to inspect 100 per cent of content 100 per cent of the time. Aquila ensures that no vital data patterns are missed. Only appliance scaling to meet future network speed and application processing demands, protecting investment as data speeds evolve. Aquila scales from 10Gbps to 100Gbps, while other comparable systems only provide 10Gbps.
Sophisticated filters to maximise search precision and data retrieval integrity. This allows items of interest to be identified which may have been missed previously due to data retrieval overload, making identification easier and faster.
Only telco grade intercept probe designed to NEBS Level 3. Most compact footprint and best power efficiency - at least half the size of other systems on the market (and ten times smaller than equivalent software solutions). This reduced footprint minimises hosting space in the data centre, as well as air conditioning requirements.
Alan Burnett, Product Manager, at Roke Manor Research, said: "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 revolutionise this as increased data volumes can be processed faster, more precisely and cost effectively."
