Net Optics Launches Network Packet Broker for 40G

Net Optics introduced its xStream 40 Network Packet Broker (NPB) for 40G networks, providing advanced filtering, aggregation, load-balancing, time stamping, etc.


Net Optics said its new platform provides 30 percent improved latency over the previous latency record. xStream 40 also provides twenty percent more filters and 2.6X higher port density with the same form factor.

Key features include:

  • Delivery of up to 64 wire-speed 1 GbE and 10 GbE ports, or 48 wire-speed 1 GbE and 10 GbE ports and 4 40 GbE ports
  • Improved hardware includes support for IEEE 1588, Precision Time Protocol and time stamping on ingress
  • Time stamping of packets on the fly with nanosecond accuracy and packet manipulation options on all ports at line rate
  • Integrated capabilities for streamlining SDN migration supporting multiple management and integration protocols
  • Ability to leverage the supersized 1.28Tbps backplane to process more traffic at faster speeds while maximizing network performance and security
  • SPYKE 1.5 delivers AA-NPM supporting 10G networks and is designed to monitor applications and networks of companies from small branch sites to 10G Enterprise-wide networks. New support for 10G traffic monitoring allows Enterprise customers to deploy a plug-and-play, cost effective solution to complement current monitoring infrastructure. AA-NPM demands deep diving into packet payloads to identify the underlying application and extract relevant performance indicators. Spyke 1.5's DPI engine adds coverage for hundreds of applications, letting customers examine and extract application meta-data for fast troubleshooting and problem resolution.

Availability for xStream 40 and Spyke 1.5 are expected early Q3.

"Most monitoring tools see packet headers and provide flow information only," says Dave Britt, Net Optics Director of APM Technologies, "whereas DPI is like opening a letter to see the content."
