SAN FRANCISCO, LINUXWORLD CONFERENCE, Aug. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
Bivio Networks(TM), a leading supplier of next-generation application-oriented
networking platforms, today announced the launch of the Bivio 500(TM), a new
advanced network appliance designed from the ground up to enable wire-speed
execution of Linux network applications at multi-Gigabit speeds. With the
Bivio 500, Bivio continues to reshape the networking landscape by allowing
Linux network applications to entrench themselves in the emerging
multi-Gigabit network infrastructure as a de-facto standard, bringing the
benefits of open architectures to a market that has been traditionally
constricted by proprietary solutions.
Radically departing from traditional computing architectures, the Bivio
architecture enables packet handling application developers to deliver their
applications at performance levels previously reserved to specialized hardware
or ASIC-based designs, while maintaining 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.
By using the Bivio 2000 and Bivio 500 as a hardware foundation for their
own network appliance product offerings, Bivio OEM partners can dramatically
lower product development costs and accelerate the delivery of critical next
generation IP service applications in the areas of security, traffic
management, load balancing, performance monitoring, IPv6, VOIP, routing and
communications infrastructure in a standard Linux execution environment.
"Our partners find they can significantly accelerate their time to market
with Bivio architecture, and the Bivio 500 provides a high-performance,
entry-scale platform to get started," said Elan Amir, president and CEO of
Bivio Networks. "Our unique, innovative model provides a foundation that
allows our partners to establish market leadership in their chosen application
With a packet handling market expected to exceed $10 billion by 2007 and
increasing demands for intelligent deep-packet processing of multi-Gigabit
network traffic, Bivio Networks is ahead of the pack delivering state-of-the
art technology optimized for wire-speed execution of emerging network
"This announcement underscores our long-standing commitment to continually
develop and deliver next generation network appliances that enable innovative,
converged IP services running on open Linux solutions," said Amir.
The Bivio 500 is priced starting at $8,000 and is available immediately.
Bivio will showcase the Bivio 500 platform at the LinuxWorld 2005 Conference
and Expo in San Francisco on August 8-11 at booth #986.
