EcoTap provides pre-filtering, modification, distribution and transmission of traffic at terabit speeds.

Network Packet Brocker documentation

The solution on the “traffic copy” allows from one point of presence to carry out:

  • DPI analysis for the needs of operational-search measures;
  • URL filtering;
  • Provide opportunities for long-term storage of traffic metadata;
  • Provide opportunities for redirecting information flows regarding AntiDDoS solutions;
  • Any other traffic analysis with third-party services..

What is pre-filter for?

  • A passive optical splitter is installed on the link between two devices of the Operator, which transmits a copy of the traffic from this link to the analyzer;
  • Depending on the task being solved by the analyzer, only Upstream traffic, only Downstream traffic or traffic of two directions simultaneously can be transmitted to it;
  • The traffic analyzer should have sufficient performance in order to isolate from all traffic coming to it only one that requires further processing or analysis;
  • With increasing traffic, the Operator is forced to install more and more expensive analyzers to cope with the growing load..

Using pre-filtering

  • To reduce the load on the analyzer, it is necessary to install a filter in front of the analyzer, which will discard the traffic that is not interesting to it;
  • Routers are sometimes used as prefilters, comparable in performance with those whose traffic from the link is removed for analysis;
  • Sometimes, dedicated servers are placed in front of the analyzer that are comparable in performance with the analyzers themselves, but whose task is exclusively to filter out “excess” traffic;
  • EcoTap solution by RDP company allows you to effectively solve the problem of traffic prefiltration..

EcoFilter sharing option

  • Passive optical splitter removes all Upstream and Downstream traffic;
  • EcoTap performs pre-filtering;
  • EcoFilter analyzes the traffic coming to it to solve the following tasks:
    • URL-filtering of prohibited resources in the ILV registry;
    • Collection and uploading of Clickstream statistics;
    • Collection and upload of Quality of Experience (QoE) metrics.
