Managing & Optimizing Data Flow

Profitap Academy

To get a complete overview of the network, there are many points in the architecture where the traffic needs to be accessed. This is where Network Packet Brokers provide an extra layer to the monitoring platform, which helps aggregate and distribute the right traffic to the right tools efficiently. Network Packet Brokers orchestrate traffic coming from TAPs and SPAN/mirror ports across the network and perform advanced, intelligent traffic management to ensure that monitoring tools receive the appropriate packet data. Maximize the utilization of your toolset and leverage a Network Packet Broker to optimize the end-to-end traffic flow.
