Cisco SCE 8000 Series Service Control Engine

The Cisco SCE 8000 Series Service Control Engine is a network element specifically designed for carrier-grade deployments requiring high-capacity stateful application and session-based classification and control of application-level IP traffic per subscriber. The SCE 8000 Series offers:

  • Industry-leading performance: The SCE 8000 Series is the foundation for Cisco's industry-leading deep packet inspection solution for multigigabit and 10 gigabit speeds. Cisco leads the industry in implementing service control capability for fast network connections.
  • Stateful deep packet inspection: Instead of processing packets as individual events, the SCE 8000 Series fully reconstructs flows and the Layer 7 state of each application flow.
  • High availability: Deployments requiring high reliability are supported by using two engines in a cascading configuration. The primary engine processes the IP traffic of two links while sharing state information with the secondary engine, which takes over in case of primary unit failure.
  • Programmability: The SCE 8000 Series is programmable and extensible through the use of the Service Management Language (SML), providing extensible support for protocols and new network services.
