The SS8 Xcipio probe accesses communications content from complex, load distributed network architectures, includes exceptional monitored-link density, application-aware heuristics, high-performance keyword search, network rewind, and security features and scales up to 160Gbps for today’s demanding network environments.
As law enforcement and national governments work quickly to keep up with criminals’ use of the internet and numerous applications and social media sites today, telecommunications providers need dependable capabilities to comply with law enforcement requests to do so. In many cases, network devices (SBCs, routers, switches, feature servers, gateways, etc.) cannot provide an active intercept capability or are not powerful enough to meet the needs of law enforcement today.
SS8’s Xcipio probe is perfectly suited to perform passive intercept for these scenarios. As a passive device, the probe is independent of the network, meaning no network performance impact. Unlike network taps that only replicate electrical currents or beams of light, the Xcipio probe actually performs intense computations to examine and assess each packet. By inspecting both the header and the payload of the packets, the Xcipio probe can examine the contents, perform string matches, take action on the contents and correlate additional intercepts - all in an effort to ensure governments and law enforcement get the information they need.
Our Xcipio probes have exceptional monitored-link density, application-aware heuristics, high-performance keyword search, network rewind, and security features necessary for today’s demanding network environments. Monitoring up to 40Gbps of traffic and up to 12 links in a compact, 2U form factor, the Xcipio probe has the ability to scale to 160Gbps and over 30 links.
