Cox Deploys Arbor’s ‘Peakflow’


Network-integrity-solutions provider Arbor Networks Inc. said Monday that Cox Communications Inc. has deployed its "Peakflow SP" traffic module to analyze its transit, peering and internal traffic.

"We first deployed Peakflow SP's DoS [denial-of-service] module to protect our network from DoS attacks," Cox manager of network engineering and architecture Randy Kinsey said in a prepared statement.

"We found that Peakflow gave us visibility into the behavior of our network," Kinsey added. "When we later decided to expand our traffic monitoring beyond peering to include internal traffic analysis, it made sense to evaluate Peakflow SP's traffic module. We are now using a single platform to address both security and operations."

Arbor said Peakflow SP is the most broadly deployed network-integrity solution in the world, with more than 40 customers including leading Internet-service providers and MSOs in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the U.S. Department of Defense.
