Protocol Header Stripping

Large data centers often carry a wide range of traffic types, including some traffic encapsulated for transport across the enterprise’s Ethernet network. However, some traffic analysis tools do not support all encapsulation types, or monitoring performance may be negatively affected when they do support broader types.

Protocol Stripping to Accommodate Diverse Traffic Types

Protocols such as VLAN, VLAN Q-in-Q, FabricPath, MPLS, VXLAN, GPRS, and GTP are used in various network configurations to encapsulate the Ethernet data to help build highly scalable multipath networks. Such networks are particularly suitable for large virtualized deployments, private clouds, and high-performance computing environments. IntellaFlex Multi Function blades, IntellaStore, and now HyperEngine include advanced protocol stripping features to ensure diagnostic tools have complete network visibility and operate at maximum efficiency.
