Header Editing

Use Tera-Pro™ to ensure forwarding traffic in the correct format to Monitoring and Cyber Security tools.

Header Editing

Header editing allows you to modify or manipulate the header information of a network packet. By adding, Removing, or changing fields of the packet header, CGS Tera-ProTM enables to customize the data based on the requirements of the specific applications and to apply enterprise-unique policies in order to comply with privacy standards, improve Tools’ efficiency and enable complex network topologies.

Use Tera-Pro™ to solve existing challenges:

Analysis encapsulated traffic degraded performance.

Achieve Tools efficiency, by eliminating unnecessary headers, and remove the burden of tunnel termination from the Tools .

High-volume encapsulated traffic should be processed by low-capacity Tools.

Enhanced decapsulation combined with advanced load-balancing techniques.

Advanced Tools analysis requires traffic/session identification.

Label your traffic to mark it for more detailed analysis.

Protect personal identity information (PII) required by privacy regulation compliance.

Mask or slice confidential data before sending them to the Tools.

Network troubleshooting.

High accuracy timestamping allows to measure latency and correlate events in data center in order to resolve network issues.

Solution using Tera-Pro™

Add Header

Header Adding is the process of adding additional information to the packet as it is being procced by the Tera-ProTM system. Tags such as VLAN or Header qualifier, are added to mark the packet and to provide additional context or instructions to the network tools. For example, an organization might add Time Stamping data to support monitoring applications or QoS specific Tags with priority instructions regarding the packet.

Remove Header

Header removal is the process of removing or striping parts of the packet header to eliminate unnecessary header information due to performance, compatibility, or security issues.  Header parts such as MPLS header, GRE encapsulation and other tunneling fields are being removed by the Tera-ProTM to enable smooth operation of Cyber Security and Monitoring tools.

Replace Header

Header replacing is the process of changing part of the packet’s header information. Header replacing can be done to modify the behavior of certain tool or application, to comply with privacy regulations or to improve network performance and efficiency.
