The Packet Company develops network applications and appliances for demanding networks requiring full line-rate recording, with concurrent recording and replay, without impacting performance. They needed a solution that was flexible and engineered to help offload processing that would otherwise need to be performed on the host server, thus enabling the support of higher signal speeds and the capability to capture traffic from non-ethernet signals.

Managers of government and critical infrastructure networks face the challenge of exponential growth in data volume and complexity, in addition to increased sophistication of cyber-attacks. The Packet Company’s recorders create the visibility needed to protect them; organizations can see and capture all the data running through their networks.

Napatech’s Link-Programmable solution is specifically engineered for high-performance computing solutions. It provides an industry-proven, ultra-reliable, FPGA-based SmartNIC platform for OEMs and end-users to deploy their own custom applications and software based on industry open and standard tools.

The Packet Company’s new product incorporating Napatech Link-Programmable SmartNICs will provide organizations with:
• Ease of use with excellent performance and reliability in network security applications and test labs
• Top-quality solutions to some of the common problems that network and test engineers encounter
• An extremely flexible platform for both lab and field use

Andrew Thomson, CEO, The Packet Company said: “Our products are open and flexible, which enables users to enhance and extend them, reconfigure them, and integrate them with other systems. Napatech brings the production-grade features we need to develop our next recorder product and best serve our customers.”
