For monitoring of traffic on 10G network links
Net Optics has unveiled new Xstream line of products for telecom and data centre networks. The new Net Optics Director Xstream and iLink Agg Xstream enable cost-effective monitoring of increasing volume of traffic on 10G network links. This enables customers to maintain the performance and security of applications and services while reducing Capex costs and improving operational efficiency.
The company said that the Director Xstream and iLink Agg Xstream enable the deployment of a monitoring access platform for 10G networks. They enable a pool of 10G and 1G tools to be deployed across a large number of 10G network links, with remote, centralised control of exactly which traffic streams are directed to each tool.
The Net Optics Xstream products enable organisations to see more traffic with fewer monitoring tools, relieve oversubscribed 10G monitoring tools, share tools and data access among groups without contention and centralise data monitoring in the network operations centre. The Director Xstream features a TapFlow filtering technology that enables organisations to select traffic of interest for each tool based on protocols, IP addresses, ports, and VLANs, the company said.
According to the Net Optics, some of the additional features include, 24 x10 Gigabit ports with fully configurable port mapping; aggregates 20 links to 4 tools; L2/4 filtering capabilities; remote access through management port / SNMP v3; device neutral that can be used with analysers or security tools; Dual power for redundancy; RMON statistics for each port; and available in 10/100/1000 copper or Gig SX and LX and 10G SR and LR.
Dennis Carpio, director of product innovation at Net Optics, said: “With our new Director and iLink Agg Xstream solutions, we’re providing a monitoring access bridge as our telecom and enterprise customers expand their 10G deployments. This will help them ensure the highest levels of performance for business-critical applications and services over their high-bandwidth networks while reducing Capex and Opex burdens from already taxed IT departments.”
