Talk to us about this

Description

Preventing failures is much more effective than repairing them, especially when it comes down to providing a reliable and secure data environment to customers. With proper visibility into your network, you can capture the data you need to prevent costly outages. Network packet brokers provide comprehensive network visibility solutions for monitoring networks. The final goal of a visibility architecture is to be able to capture data smartly at regular intervals for troubleshooting or any other monitoring needs.

The network packet broker EX6 is a flexible design for applications with mixed copper and fibre interfaces with 1 Gbit bandwidth. The EX6 allows you to filter and load-balance traffic from 10 Gbps link to multiple 1 Gbps monitoring tools or aggregate multiple 1 Gbps links to 10 Gbps monitoring tools. The EX6 also supports traffic modification as well as changing, removing and adding VLANs.
