MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech today announces the
extension of the company's protocol and traffic analysis product line with the
immediate availability of the 1 x 10 Gb Programmable Protocol Analysis Network
The 1 x 10 Gb Protocol and Traffic analysis network adapter is the
natural extension of the existing 4/8 x 1 Gb Protocol Analysis product line
which already contains the most powerful and the only fully programmable
protocol analysis adapters available on the market today, allowing protocol
filtering at 8 Gbps. The network adapter is based on the industry standard
PCI-X interface and compliant with most platforms.
"The new 10 Gb Protocol Analysis network adapter includes our advanced
feature set and gives our OEM-customers a unique chance to introduce 10 Gb
products with a minimum of time-to-market. The Protocol Analysis products are
already deployed in production networks and have proven their worth. The
fully programmable platform provides both Napatech and our customers with the
ability to rapidly and continuously add features and update the solutions in
the field. Now we simply translate our success with a multiple gigabit
platform into the next level of technology," says Thomas Jorgensen, co-founder
and vice president of business development at Napatech.
"Our module-based architecture with well-defined interfaces has already
shown its strength to our customers, allowing them the potential of using
existing SW. This efficient process of implementation allows our customers to
quickly deliver extremely competitive solutions to market with minimal
The 1 x 10 Gb Protocol Analysis network adapter includes features such as
packet filtering, packet tracing and high-precision time-stamping all done in
hardware, allowing packet processing at up to 10 Gbps line speeds. Systems
with multiple cards will be able to support line speed on all cards and ports.
The feature set includes 64 fully programmable filters, Linux, FreeBSD and
Windows XP drivers, a programming interface and source code.
The network adapter is capable of making up to 1 billion filter lookups
per second. Because of the flexible and effective filtering, the host
application can concentrate on the specialized protocol analysis rather than
on filtering and discarding irrelevant data.
Availability & Configurations
The Napatech 1 x 10 Gb optical network adapter is launched on the 6th of
June 2005 during the SuperComm exhibition in Chicago. Pricing information can
be obtained directly from Napatech.

Napatech is focused on programmable and intelligent Ethernet adapters.
The core idea is off-loading real-time/streaming protocol and payload analysis
and control applications traditionally implemented in software or proprietary
hardware. Napatech expects a huge growth in the demand for intelligent and
programmable adapters as Ethernet speeds increase. The current PC
architecture limits the amount of bandwidth that can be handled by the PCI bus
and CPU/memory. Napatech offers its products to OEM customers. Napatech has
marketing and R&D offices in Mountain View, California, and Copenhagen,
