DiViNetworks’ compression mechanism eliminates repetitions at the IP payload level between a compressor function in the DiViCloud PoP and a de-compressor function in the DiViCloud Agent. The system identifies repeating bit-stream patterns, replaces them with a reduced-length signature at the PoP, which is replaced in turn with the original payload at the Agent.
Though most IP traffic flowing in the Internet is already compressed (e.g. video, audio, office, executables) there is a huge redundancy in the Internet, derived from the vast yet limited number of patterns, and the similar behavior demonstrated by different end-users.
This redundancy enables reduction traffic volumes without loss of information. DiViNetworks utilizes this data redundancy in a pragmatic communication system, operating at wire-speed.
The data compression technology holds some unique characteristics, derived from its operation at the bit-stream layer:
|Operates on 100% of traffic||Operating at bit-stream level, the compression technology is agnostic to protocol, application or content. It deals with traffic segments, which are not dealt by any optimization technology.|
|Future proof; Zero provisioning||As the Internet evolves – with new formats and protocols – the compression technology maintains its performance as is. No need to tailor the mechanisms or update the systems.|
|Functions on asymmetric links||Compression merely looks at the bit-stream. It does not need the ACKs and GETs. It therefore supports the downlink and uplink independently.|
