Data Capture Infrastructure Optimizes Network Monitoring and Increases Efficiency
Networks are growing more complex, carrying more services, higher volumes of multi-protocol network traffic, and requiring greater bandwidth. At the same time, network and security personnel are required to monitor and analyze more links in greater detail throughout the network in order to meet application performance demands, minimize security threats, and meet regulatory compliance. Higher speed networks are being deployed, fueling the need for higher speed monitoring tools. However, while networks are getting faster, many network and security professionals are also having to make do with the legacy monitoring tools they already have.
The Datacom Systems VS-2024-F helps solve many of today's most pressing tool deployment problems by allowing organizations to conveniently connect 10G and 1G test and monitoring tools to any traffic on the network. Network tools can be leveraged throughout the enterprise, allowing multiple departments with different needs to share tools and network access points with remote and centralized control.
Instead of tools attempting to keep up with high-speed aggregated traffic streams, the VS-2024-F can apply packet filters to the data to increase tool efficiency and eliminate port oversubscription. Line-rate hardware filtering on each port allows you to customize and streamline the amount and type of data each connected monitoring tool receives. Because they are receiving only traffic of interest, tools run faster, data is easier to work with, and issues are resolved quicker. Filters include IP and MAC ranges, VLAN, frame, port number, even customizable offsets in the packet header.
Load balancing can further reduce bottlenecks, port oversubscription, and ensure network resources are not under-utilized by distributing traffic from one source to multiple destinations.
Many-to-Any monitoring access aggregates network traffic and provides visibility for one or more monitoring tools into multiple network segments. Aggregate and reassemble full duplex conversations from one or more trunked links. Perfect for tools that don't support multiple monitoring interfaces or for redundant networks, EtherChannel, load balanced servers, and asymmetrically routed traffic.
Any-to-Many configurations replicate copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools monitoring access to the same links. In addition to eliminating contention for scarce SPAN ports and test access points, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.
Port Steering (Any-to-Any)
Any of the 24 ports can be configured as input (network) or output (monitoring) ports on the fly through an easy to use command line interface (CLI). Any monitoring port can receive traffic from any of the other ports, eliminating the need for network managers to change complex network configurations or move tools around their network.
