Shenick Receives 2008 Global Technology Innovation Award From Frost & Sullivan
Shenick Network Systems, provider of per-flow IP communication test and monitoring systems, has received Frost & Sullivan's 2008 Global Technology Innovation Award for its deep packet inspection (DPI) test equipment. The award honors companies that demonstrate outstanding DPI testing technology and market performance for Internet-based application traffic control, shaping, and network management.
DPI regularly filters, shapes, controls and manages network application traffic flows, such as voice, video and peer-to-peer (P2P), along with control and prevention of security attacks. DPI systems enable telecom service providers, network equipment manufacturers, and large enterprises to shape and manage traffic to relieve network congestion and guarantee that every user receives adequate bandwidth and an assured quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE). Shenick's diversifEye(TM) offers a unique per-flow architecture that enables DPI infrastructure vendors and the service providers who deploy such technology, to accurately test their DPI capabilities in a real-world test environment before it is used in a live environment. diversifEye creates a real-world test environment by emulating the equivalent of millions of Internet subscribers generating stateful, real-time application traffic and by analyzing each individual traffic flow. A variety of test application scenarios are supported, including IPTV, Video on Demand, triple play (video, voice, data), network security, P2P, traffic shaping, and also IPv4 and IPv6 Internet protocols.
"Shenick Network Systems has established itself as a key player within the DPI test equipment market," said Olga Yashkova, communication test sector analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "Due to Shenick's impressive growth, customer base, global presence, and most importantly, unique and innovative per-flow technology, Shenick is the worthy recipient of Frost & Sullivan's 2008 Global Technology Innovation Award in the DPI Test Equipment market."
"Getting DPI systems to function right at high performance levels is a challenge in any live network today," explained Robert Winters, chief marketing officer, Shenick Network Systems. "Stopping illegal P2P video downloads yet letting through legitimate P2P services such as voice and instant messaging, while at the same time trying to guarantee fair bandwidth allocation for all Internet users is a tall order for any provider. Shenick's diversifEye generates a myriad of application flows that enable DPI manufacturers to test and perfect their DPI systems right down to an individual user level in a lab environment before they move to a live environment. We are honored to receive Frost & Sullivan's DPI Test Equipment Technology Innovation Award 2008."
Shenick's diversifEye is the only test system in the market that can generate millions of subscribers' worth of network traffic and both emulate and analyze each and every application flow. This approach delivers a much greater degree of confidence, so that every customer can experience the highest quality service and controlled traffic scenario from service providers.
This is Shenick's fourth award from Frost & Sullivan, having previously received the European Product Line Strategy Award in 2005, the Worldwide Emerging Company of the Year Award in 2006, and the Product Innovation Award for IPTV and Triple Play Test Equipment in 2007.
