Network Packet Brokers

Optimize the performance of network analysis and security tools

What is a Network Packet Broker?

 

Network Packet Broker (NPB) is a device that optimizes the flow of traffic between TAP and SPAN connections and network monitoring, security and acceleration tools. By maintaining a many-to-many (M:M) port mapping of network ports to monitoring ports, they can then direct network traffic more efficiently and filters can be applied to optimize bandwidth usage on the network. This also means the performance of out of band tools will increase as they receive only actionable data.

 

Why do you need a Network Packet Broker?

Network architectures are constantly becoming more complex and distributed, so are the network speeds, volume of data and traffic. Network Packet Brokers help you optimize the performance of your monitoring and security tools across the entire network by giving each tool the right packet data, which result in an increase of network efficiency while reducing your costs.

The Profitap XX-Series and X2-Series Network Packet Brokers are high-end versatile solutions, bringing you the power and flexibility of network traffic management. All Profitap’s Network Packet Brokers are designed for aggregation, filtering and routing of multiple 10G/25G/40G/100G inputs, used in very high sustained bandwidth port monitoring and analysis scenarios.

Network Packet Brokers enhance the performance of network analysis and security tools, helping you solve application performance bottlenecks and troubleshoot problems on the network. This way you can benefit from greater monitoring and an improved return on investment.
