Advanced Cyber Security Application Platform

The Bivio 8000i Series is a family of carrier-grade, high-performance packet processing systems that are flexible, scalable and fully programmable. The platform combines an Intel® processor-based hardware architecture optimized for packet processing with a robust and secure Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® environment and a comprehensive set of networking features.

Designed specifically to provide wire speed deep packet and applications processing with uncompromising performance and unmatched flexibility, the Bivio 8000i Series architecture allows cyber security and network assurance professionals to rapidly deploy advanced network application solutions with extreme packet processing capability in a power-efficient platform with a lower total cost of ownership.


40 Gbps

State-of-the-art high-performance architecture ensures all deep packet handling services on all interfaces are processed and forwarded at up to 40 Gbps.


Optimized Linux Environment

Applications run on a secure, performance-optimized Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® distribution to deliver industry-leading throughput and agility.

Carrier-Grade Reliability

Hot swap blades, AC or DC rack power options, and redundant system configurations enable delivery of non-stop mission-critical services.

Scalable & Efficient

Up to five Application Processor blades with multi-core Intel® processors may be installed in the platform to provide unprecedented application performance, network throughput and power efficiency.

Bivio 8000i BiviOS Environment

Exclusive BiviOS™ Environment

The BiviOS™ Packet Acceleration and Application Environment is the foundation of Bivio 8000i Series Advanced Cyber Security Application Platforms. BiviOS™ enables cyber applications to achieve extremely high-speed network traffic processing and is fully integrated with the standard Linux libraries.

Using this implementation, the application does not need to be modified with any system details – it only needs to invoke the standard Linux network traffic and packet handling mechanisms. This compatibility delivers significant performance improvements over server-class appliances for open source Linux applications such as SNORT®, Suricata, Bro, Argus, YAF, nProbe, TCPdump, as well as other commercial and proprietary software.
