Bivio Networks Announces High-Speed 8-Port Network Appliance Designed For Next-Generation Network Applications
Bivio 500 8-Port Expands Network Coverage Capacity for Security and Communications Network Applications to Manage Network Traffic at Multi-Gigabit Speeds
Pleasanton, Calif., November 21, 2005 – Bivio Networks, the leader in high-speed computing platforms for the Software-driven Network™, today introduced its new eight-port Bivio 500™ hardware appliance, further expanding and enhancing Bivio’s advanced network appliance family with a high port density product. The new product, base d on Bivio’s hardware platform that enables wire-speed execution of Linux-based network applications at multi-gigabit speeds, allows customers to extend the ability of their specialized appliances to monitor more sub-networks and provide greater deep-packet inspection capabilities.
“The Bivio 500 appliance series set a new standard for high-speed, deep-packet handling at an entry scale price,” said Elan Amir, president and CEO of Bivio Networks. “The new eight-port Bivio 500 adds the advantage of high port-density to monitor more sub-networks, reducing partner costs and the demand for valuable rack space. At the same time, the Bivio 500 series delivers the wire-speed performance our partners need to establish market leadership in their chosen application areas.”
Radically departing from traditional computing architectures, the Bivio platform enables network application developers to deliver products that perform at levels previously reserved to specialized hardware or ASIC-based designs. At the same time, Bivio’s Linux-based product line maintains the benefits of open, easily portable software development. Leveraging the architecture and technology found in the Bivio 2000 flagship product, the Bivio 500 delivers true Gigabit performance for any Linux-based networking applications at any packet size, vastly outperforming traditional appliance technologies.
Using the unique processing architecture as the foundation for their products, Bivio partners can dramatically lower product development costs and accelerate the delivery of next-generation network products. Network appliances based on Bivio’s unique processing architecture deliver unmatched wire-speed performance in the areas of security, traffic management, load balancing, performance monitoring, IPv6, VOIP, routing and communications infrastructure in a standard Linux execution environment.
