The NetQuest I-8800 Interceptors deliver a network monitoring access platform including automated network traffic discovery and intercept capabilities for monitoring today's 10G and 2.5G optical transport networks.
Without any prior knowledge of the network provisioning, the I-8800 is capable of discovering and reporting the contents of a variety of packet or TDM service networks including OTN OTU2/2e/1e, LAN-PHY, and deeply channelized OC-192/STM-64/OC-48/STM-16. Subsequently, the I-8800 enables selective targeting of precise data traffic by removing framing/transport protocols and routing this traffic to specialized Ethernet-based tools for deeper level analysis.
Real-time optical network survey and content auto-discovery
Flexibility to monitor OTU2/2e/1e, OC-192/STM-64, OC-48/STM-16 and 10GbE inputs
Lossless interception of multi-protocol data
Aggregation and load balancing to optimize efficiency of downstream tools
