Service providers and large enterprises continue to experience significant traffic growth, driving the need for ever faster speeds in the core network and at critical hot spots. While the majority of the network may be 10G Ethernet speeds, now 100G Ethernet is being deployed to meet the needs of demanding network locations.
100G Network Visibility
The IntellaFlex 100G Blade provides high performance monitoring for 100G Ethernet networks. It’s part of the modular IntellaFlex XR family of monitoring systems, enabling enterprises to combine 1G, 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet blades to monitor high speed networks.
Use Existing Tools to Monitor High Speed Networks
IntellaFlex XR systems aggregate tap and SPAN ports from across the enterprise network and data center, including new 100G Ethernet ports, then filter traffic of interest compatible with existing 1G, 10G, and 40G security and performance monitoring tools.
Load Balance across 40G, 10G or 1G Tools
Most existing security and performance monitoring tools can’t support full 100 Gbps of traffic. Today the enterprise uses a mix of 1G, 10G and 40G tools. IntellaFlex XR supports load balancing and can aggregate traffic from the 100G blade, along with other traffic, then filter and load balance traffic of interest across multiple 1G, 10G or 40G tools.
