NetScout Acquires ONPATH for Network Monitoring at 10/40/100G

NetScout Systems has acquired privately held ONPATH Technologies, a supplier of calable connectivity and monitoring solutions for an undisclosed sum.

ONPATH, which is based in Marlton, New Jersey, offers a Universal Connectivity System and HorizON Software platform that automates and secures data center and test infrastructure.  The tools help network managers to conserve time, increase utilization, and save money compared to manual patching, static TAPs, SPAN ports, or complex mesh switching architectures. ONPATH claims over one million installed ports throughout Fortune 1,000 and Government customers.

NetScout said the acquisition of ONPATH is a strategic move that expands its position in the network monitoring switch market. NetScout said it will leverage ONPATH’s next generation technology to deliver an extensible modular chassis-based switching product portfolio supporting more than 500 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) per chassis along with market-leading densities for 40 GbE, and future support for 100 GbE interfaces.

“As enterprise and service provider organizations continue to face the challenges of monitoring large, distributed and high volume IP network environments, they need greater density and flexibility to scale their access to packet-flow intelligence,” said Anil Singhal, president and CEO, NetScout.  “Our acquisition of ONPATH significantly extends NetScout’s network monitoring switch position and will enable us to establish ourselves as the technology leader in this segment. We intend to quickly integrate this technology into our packet flow switch product offering to deliver a comprehensive, ultra low latency switch portfolio with industry-leading performance and port densities that will be easier to integrate and simpler to manage. This will enable enterprise and service provider organizations to address a diverse range of deployment requirements to improve the efficiency, control and distribution of valuable network traffic flows and reduce the overall total cost of ownership for network-based monitoring deployments.”

NetScout acquired Simena in November 2011 for its low-latency IP packet flow-based network monitoring switching technology.
