Qosmos ixEngine®

Qosmos ixEngine is a Software Development Kit (SDK) composed of software libraries and tools that are easily integrated into new or existing solutions. Developers benefit from market-leading IP flow parsing technology to accelerate the delivery of application aware solutions. Qosmos ixEngine can be used in all environments: physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures. - Identification of thousands of protocols and applications (learn more in protocol and metadata support section) - Extraction of 4300 application metadata - Optimized to analyse in real time traffic at 10, 40, 100 Gbps



  • C Libraries designed to be embedded into applications
  • 2600 protocol plugins, continuously supported and updated
  • 4300 application metadata extracted
  • Classification of networking protocols and applications based on flow pattern matching, bi-directional flow correlation heuristics and statistical analysis
  • High recognition rate: ability to identify all layers from layer 2 to 7 in the OSI model
  • Ability to develop custom application plugins based on description
  • Protocol plugin In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU)
  • Modular architecture (flow management, regular expression engine, http parsing, etc.)
