Our products at a glance
An NPU is like the CPU in your computer fully programmable to what it does with the traffic and this is the secret to our products – software.
While many similar products are based on fixed function ASICs that does a number of things and often very well they are fixed and limited in their functionality. You need something new, you have to buy a new box. Software can be adapted, enhanced, updated or even replaced, to give you new tools and new functionality on the same platform.
This gives our customers a greater service flexibility meaning that they can adapt their service offering to market demands without having to change or add new equipment to their network. It also enables our customers to better meet and maximize the user experience.
With our products you stand a fighting chance that your network that you build today will last beyond tomorrow regardless of what.
Our software allows us to include powerful troubleshooting tools like one of our flagship features, the ability to measure quality for multicast TV. This gives network operators a tool to proactively monitor TV traffic and to detect and respond to issues even before customers start calling and complaining about pixilation or other service degradation. In seconds the source of the problem can be identified and resolved. That’s the power of software!
The fundament of our software is the operating system running on our products named iBOS. iBOS is based on reliable and well-proven open source combined with our own proprietary code base.
We have our own packet forwarding code which has been in deployment for almost 10 years (since 2007) in tens of thousands of units. The iBOS software platform enable us to deliver smart and innovative features and to enable functionality in products you would not expect to be possible.
