The Technology

Packet steering is a fundamental function in network devices such as SmartNICs, switches and routers. The number of steering rules is proportional to the number of users. But TECHNOLOGY LAGS BEHIND. The present packet steering technology powering network-packet-processors is incapable of sustaining the increase in both network speeds and steering rules!
Current potential solutions like “Throwing more hardware” are not feasible due to technology constraints. Thus, a new concept for packet-steering technology must be adopted.
ClassifAI IS THE SOLUTION. ClassifAI is a novel AI-based packet-steering technology fitted to next-gen cloud demands. ClassifAI can accommodate millions of steering rules, paving the way for the next 15 years of cloud data center expansion.
