The Net Optics Director family of smart filtering appliances (Network Packet Brokers) directs traffic of interest to monitoring tools in order to relieve oversubscription, leverage tool investment across groups, and centralize monitoring in the NOC. These advanced network controller and data monitoring switches feature:

  • Tap, aggregation, regeneration, matrix switching, and smart filtering in a single device
  • Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), static and dynamic load balancing, and snapshot packet capture
  • Fast ProPush™ statistics for microburst detection
  • Low-latency, hardware-based TapFlow™ filtering engine
  • 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps operation
  • Inline and SPAN network modules
  • Dual, hot-swappable power supplies

Load Balancing
Load Balancers relieve overloaded monitoring tools by distributing traffic, by flow, to multiple replicated tools working in parallel. Tool replication enables customers to increase the throughput of their security and performance monitoring by factors of 2, 3, 4, or more without incurring the CAPEX, integration, and learning-curve costs of acquiring new, unfamiliar tools. The complete line of Net Optics devices with load balancing functionality encompass solutions for all topologies of monitoring load balancing including:

  • Out-of-band, as with traffic recorders and intrusion detection systems (IDS)
  • Inline, as with intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and next-generation firewalls
  • Tool sharing, where multiple independent links can share a load-balanced pool of inline tools

Media Converters
NetOptics media converters provide media conversion for security and network devices from all types of networks.

  • Converter Taps provide 100% visibility to link traffic for security and network monitoring tools
  • Able to convert copper to fiber, single mode to multimode
  • 1G and 10G media conversion capabilities
