Irish QoS network firm raises 15 million funding

TIPPINST – The Irish times are reporting in the technology section of their newspaper about the 15 million euro funding round led by Apax Partners, one of the world’s biggest private equity firms. ACT Venture Capital and Cisco Systems are also investors in Corvil Networks.
Corvil is a recent startup who develop a number of products that analyse packet switched ip based networks so as to provide better levels of QoS. From talking to some of the people in Corvil last year I understand that they are in the process of developing a family of appliances for high speed links with additional functionality such as deep/stateful classification, content classification, shaping, policing etc. At the time they were considering using the Intel IXP2400/IXP2800 with classification and encryption processor support.
Some of the algorithms encompassed in the products were developed by the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) who had filed several patents in the area of QoS in particular how TCP is handled.
Forrester research highlighted Corvil last december as as leader in the area of QoS.
