10Gb Ethernet
Monitoring Card
KEY FEATURES

Enables monitoring applications to connect to 10Gb optical
Ethernet networks, with integrated hardware acceleration
that offloads filtering and DPI functions from the host.

OVERVIEW

• Up to 16,000 onboard n-tuple filters
– IP address, TCP port, UDP port
• Libpcab BPF signature filters on board
• Programable text parsing
• Metadata for protocol layer identification
• 3 x 1Gb Ethernet outputs for packet
forwarding
• Half-length PCIe, 4-lane

KEY BENEFITS
• Usable with any PCIe compatible COTS
hardware platform
• Monitoring of line rate 10Gb Ethernet
• Option to reduce host CPU cost by direct
forwarding filtered traffic over GigE
• Integrated text filtering and packet
classification accelerates subsequent DPI
stages on host
• BPF filters programmable from
standard libpcab

The MPAC-IP 4975 Ethernet Monitoring Card is a network access, filtering and
monitoring board for high rate Ethernet data networks. The board provides a 10Gb
Ethernet monitoring input, three Gigabit Ethernet ports for the direct delivery of
filtered data and FPGA based layer 2-4 packet filtering.
Integrated filtering identifies each individual flow (n-tuple filtering) and discards unwanted
packets. Selected flows can be further filtered with libpcap based Berkley Packet Filters (BPF).
Classification functions provide the next stage of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) with instant
access to protocol layer boundaries and variable position text, accelerating the DPI function
and off-loading processing from the host.
Filtered frames being forwarded can either be copied directly to host memory or forwarded
to a remote server via the onboard dual Gigabit Ethernet ports. The line-speed filtering makes
the IPAC card suitable for real-time or post analysis packet processing applications.
Direct forwarding of filtered packets over Ethernet removes the need for host processing of
some (or even all) data. For example a voice over IP monitoring product may use the card to
deliver signalling protocols (such as SIP or H.323) over the PCIe bus, while delivering voice
content (such as RTP) directly over Ethernet to a recorder or playback system.
