Provide real-time, end-to-end visibility, insight and security into physical, virtual, SDN and NFV networks.
Ixia Visibility Solutions provide real-time, end-to-end visibility, insight and security into physical, virtual, SDN and NFV networks, delivering the control, coverage and performance in a seamless fashion to protect and improve crucial networking, data center and cloud business assets.
Step 1: Capture all your network traffic by tapping every network link
Step 2: Through non-production links, traffic flows to one or more Vision network packet brokers where duplicate data is removed then filtered using NetStack, PacketStack, SecureStack and AppStack visibility intelligence capabilities
Step 3: Your security, performance and monitoring tools receive the most appropriate data stream, tailored specifically for that tool; your tools work more efficiently, and most effectively
TAPS, AGGREGATORS, REGENERATORS
The Ixia family of taps provides 100 percent visibility and permanent passive access points into the customer’s network. When a monitoring tool is needed, simply connect the device to the tap instead of taking down the link and interrupting traffic. Taps pass all network traffic—including Layers 1 and 2 errors—without introducing bottlenecks or points of failure. Regardless of interface or location in the network, we provide a tap solution, supporting copper, multimode and single mode fiber at speeds up to 400Gbps with media conversion models available.
VISION PORTFOLIO: NETWORK PACKET BROKERS
Data is routed to one or many network packet brokers; the fabric of packet brokers serves to organize and streamline data for specific monitoring, performance and security tools. Known for their easy-to-use web interface, Ixia’s packet brokers do all the heavy lifting when it comes to managing filter rules, making it easy to manage change while freeing up valuable time to focus on other things. Data is then sent to security, performance and analytics tools; these tools can perform at an optimal level because they receive the right data in the right format and at a manageable throughput. In the case of inline deployments, approved data is then sent back into your network. Ixia offers single pane of glass management and configuration options, which allows you to scale in both physical and virtual environments.
CLOUDLENS: PACKET-LEVEL VISIBILITY FOR PUBLIC, PRIVATE, & HYBRID CLOUD
Migrating mission-critical workloads to the cloud requires actionable intelligence for IT security and analytics tools — which are only as effective as the data they see. IT’s challenge is to ensure that the infrastructure delivers applications that are reliable, fast, and secure. Business changes are forcing IT to gain greater insight and understanding of the network to maximize performance. Ixia CloudLens™ delivers end-to-end visibility and provides context-aware data processing across all cloud environments — public, private and hybrid cloud — making applications stronger by providing a high level of network intelligence.
When a network monitoring device such as an IPS is deployed inline in a network, it is vital to ensure that traffic continues to flow in all circumstances, even if the IPS loses power, so that mission-critical business applications remain available. A bypass switch is an excellent solution that keeps traffic flowing, for failsafe implementation of inline security tools.
Stack up Ixia’s leading visibility intelligence features to optimize your traffic analysis and security tool performance. Used with a network packet broker, virtual or cloud platform, the extensive set of intelligent features allows you to modify, mold and transport traffic specific to tool needs. Each feature is executed with a purpose-built design to ensure you get the best performance whether in a physical data-center or in the cloud.
