Ixia Control Tower

Network Visibility Architecture for centralised, intelligent monitoring.

Ixia ControlTower Network Visibility Architecture

Ixia ControlTower™ is a network visibility architecture for centralized, intelligent monitoring. It solves some of the biggest problems facing network administrators: increasing scale, flexible deployments, and the need to monitor the entire network. It helps you easily scale and rapidly deploy multiple segments for centralized, intelligent monitoring.

SOLUTION FEATURES

• Centralize management of your visibility network
• Improve network visibility across a data center or campus
• Free your network from the constraints of a single box that limits deployment options

SOLUTION BENEFITS

• Reduce the number of interconnect trunk links to an absolute minimum
• Monitor segments across the enterprise network for potential information theft and malware  transmission
• Deploy a centralized “farm” of cost effective, high-capacity security tools to monitor distributed buildings and segments monitored, collecting interesting traffic and bringing it back to the security tool farm for inspection
• Scale monitored segments and tools without increasing management overhead

Ixia ControlTower™ architecture delivers these major solutions:

Top-of-Rack Solution

 Ixia Anue Control Tower Top Rack Solution
Top-of-rack or end-of-row deployment in scalable, flexible data centers, such as cloud-hosting centers with their extreme need for flexibility and scalability. Ixia ControlTower™, like an airport control tower, gives you a total view from far above the traffic and enables you to maintain complete visibility of your network. Place a member at the top of each rack or end of each row, collect relevant traffic, and bring it back to the monitoring tool farm for inspection.

Campus Solution

 Ixia Anue Control Tower Campus Solution
In enterprise campus environments, IT needs to extend visibility into several buildings and not just be concerned with the perimeter of the central data center or internet access point. Advanced Persistent Threats may be deep inside the network, in any building, accessing corporate information such as product designs or pricing data. Ixia's ControlTower™ is the ideal cost-effective architecture to enable network-wide visibility. Its tool-farm approach maximizes monitored segments while minimizing the number of interconnect trunk links.

Traditional Data Center Solution

Ixia Anue Control Tower Traditional Data Center Solution
Ixia ControlTower™ architecture supports a centralized data center high-port-density solution: stack multiple members in a single location and treat the stack as a single, large chassis. This flexible solution offers the port density and ease of management of a single-chassis solution, but with no change in administrative overhead if needs change and some of the visibility ports must be deployed in a remote equipment rack or building.
