Choose your flavour : VNF or SDN accelerated VNF

Our classification solution is available either as a pure virtual solution (VNF) for lower scale requirements (10G) or as a combination of hardware (SDN switch) and the VNF for ultra high scales (100G+)

Virtual Solution : VNF

For up to 10Gbps (each direction) traffic rates, our VNF solution delivers high performance in just 8 cores. This is the perfect option for small scale telcos or enterprises whose traffic rates are in the order of 10-20 Gbps, and do not want to invest in buying any hardware. The solution works both on bare metal server, as well as in a virtualised environment such as Openstack.

SDN accelerated VNF

Leverage the unprecedented scale by combining SDN with NFV: Our SDN accelerated VNF solution scales up to 400Gbps in just 4RU. Our smart VNFs balance the processing of the traffic between hardware (Barefoot Tofino) and software (CPU) to achieve much higher scale than a virtual solution alone.

Our Differentiation

Compared to existing traditional solutions, Our technology provides unparalleled network insights at affordable costs

Analyse flows, not packets

Unlike traditional DPI technologies which rely on packet inspection, Canopus uses Machine Learning to profile data flows, allowing unprecedented network analytics at high data rates

Scalable to 400 Gbps

Canopus solution is highly scalable with current throughput capacity of up to 400Gbps in just 4RU

Future proof: works with encrypted traffic

CanopusAI allows network analytics to occur on encrypted data streams by utilising Canopus' patented FlowPulse technology.

Analytics separated from "In-line" action

Traditional DPI integrate both Analytics and Action "in-line" while Canopus decouples the two, allowing Analytics to occur out-of-line with zero risk. Action is provided in-line via off-the-shelf hardware, or is signalled into existing hardware through an API

Utilises low cost white box hardware

Canopus dramatically reduces the cost of deployment by utilising white box off-the-shelf hardware which can be acquired by the customers from a range of vendors.
