Classification as a Virtual Network Function Component (VNFC)

Qosmos technology as a Virtual Network Function Component (VNFC) complies with an official use case standardized by ETSI. This Qosmos concept runs in a virtual machine and uses optimized interface to feed application information and metadata to other integrated components, together forming virtual networking equipment (VNFs) such as Service Routers, GGSN, PGW, PCEF, BRAS, ADC/Load Balancers, Network Analytics, NG Firewalls, WAN optimization, etc.

Qosmos VNFC is based on Qosmos’ flagship product ixEngine®, which is already established as the de facto industry-standard classification and metadata engine for developers of telecoms and enterprise solutions. ixEngine identifies and extracts information traveling over networks in real time, providing a true picture of the traffic by identifying protocols, types of application, and extracting additional information in the form of metadata. Equipment makers, telco and enterprise software vendors, and cloud service providers use Qosmos to gain application awareness, accelerate time to market and benefit from continuous signature updates.



  • Short time-to-market for solution developers
  • Safe implementation: VNFCs de-correlated from engine software and signature updates
  • Improved flexibility (VM migration)
  • Elastic scalability (up & out)




“Qosmos has been the gold standard for embedded DPI and related applications. With their recent work in NFV, they’re leading the market into the critical area of DPI as a service, and facilitating the integration of SDN and NFV into a common and more compelling revolution in networking.”
