Programmable Packet Engine  


The Programmable Packet Engine (PPE), is an advanced real-time network processing platform that enables users to take a radically different approach to network monitoring. The PPE provides the ability to programmatically search for, extract, and deliver detailed metadata in real-time, providing an unmatched level of situational awareness, traffic visibility, and control. The PPE enables organizations to:

  • Reduce the volume of data being sent to follow-on processors
  • Provide a scalable approach to adjunct descriptive and predictive network analytics
  • Turn unstructured network data into actionable intelligence

Key Features

  • Targets traffic of interest and generates metadata for any type of network, regardless of protocol
  • Extracts data into key, value pairs, reducing the total amount of data needed to be analyzed, stored or processed
  • Sends metadata out in JSON or any other data formats for use by stream processing, analytic platforms, and network monitoring devices

* In early 2018, MantisNet launched the Virtual Packet Programmable Engine (vPPE). While the vPPE accomplishes the same objectives as the standard PPE of taking the next step in continuously decoding, extracting, and converting unstructured network data into actional intelligence, the vPPE is specially designed for the cloud and virtualized or container-based use cases. 


Simplified Deployment and Pricing

MantisNet licensing is sized and scaled to meet the current and future demands of the enterprise:

  • Licensing is based on the specific cloud instance, and the type and number of total sensors required
  • Pricing scales with performance and processing demands.
  • Performance is based on the specific instance and availability of resources (network bandwidth, number of CPU cores/memory) allocated as well as the resource demands of the traffic of interest and the licensed protocol transcoders.
  • Provides predictable lifecycle upgrades by offering support for up to two major software releases*
