Content Inspection Director Features and Benefits

Carrier-Grade Visibility and Control

Subscriber / Content / Application Awareness (DPI/DFI)
  • Enable wire speed policy-based redirection of the traffic to the required service engines according to DPI/DFI
  • Gain deeper network intelligence visibility and control at the micro flow and transactional level
  • Allow differentiating services according to user/subscriber/content details
AAA Integration
Extract user information from the operator’s authentication, authorization and accounting (RADIUS) systems
Device Logging
  • Store session and additional user dynamic information carried out from RADIUS Start/Stop accounting messages
  • Increase operator visibility and network discovery

Value Added Services Application Delivery

Transparent application delivery
  • Define redirection and load-balancing policies based on real-time measurement
  • Support multi-vendor VAS environments
  • Support multiple access technologies
  • Sequentially redirect same session traffic across multiple VAS
Flexible Policy Enforcement Point (PEP)
  • Control user, service or application traffic flows for differentiated services (hair pinning)
  • Enforce multi-staged policies (by handset, user, network, MIME type, etc.)
Wire-Line Load Balancing
Load balance traffic to “MAC less” devices connected by a single or dual ports
Header Enrichment and Modification
  • Support various optimization models, e.g. effective bypass WAP gateway, etc.
  • Enrich and modify HTTP headers transparently
  • Modify Transparent / non transparent URL relative path
  • Prevent misuse of bandwidth by non-business critical applications (P2P, etc)
Bandwidth Management and Traffic shaping
  • Prevent uneven network utilization by limiting/guaranteeing bandwidth per class, user
  • User-defined and Predefined classes include over 40 common applications, ToS or Diffserv bits

Walled-Garden and VAS High Availability

Guaranty VAS high availability
  • Quickly identify and bypass failures at any point along the application or transaction path by automatically redirecting traffic to the best available servers
  • Allows redirection of users to remote servers based on server availability
  • Monitor the health of a wide range of applications including: VoIP, streaming media (RTSP), and more
Active/Passive Device Redundancy
  • Real-time management dashboard which continuously monitors and displays application delivery services & system status, network and application performance & faults and more – allowing fast, efficient incident resolution
  • Guarantee uptime, highest SLA and best QoE to users and customers
  • Reduce service interruptions in all cases
  • Full table synchronization
