Net Optics Introduces 10 Gbps Aggregation Switch

Net Optics introduced its Phantom HD high-throughput aggregation appliance for network monitoring. It supports 10 Gbps tunnel for aggregating traffic to monitoring tools.

The Phantom HD eliminates the need for a physical, wired connection between the monitoring and access layers and the instrumentation layer. This removes the physical proximity requirement for monitoring tools. Visibility into the virtual network allows raw network traffic to be transported from several remote locations to one central control site, then inspected and stored.

Net Optics said its Phantom HD can aggregate traffic of interest from multiple Phantom Virtual Taps (software Tap) at one location. Network managers can then view and inspect any traffic of interest (wired or virtual) from several remote offices in one central point.
