Products

 

nGenius Packet Flow Switch Family by NetScout

NetScout provides a total solution for network, application and service performance management. The families of TAPs and packet flow switches complement the nGenius Service Assurance Solution, providing superior packet flow access, and seamlessly integrating into the networking infrastructure. This integrated solution enables wireline and wireless service providers to streamline their operations, reduce monitoring infrastructure complexity and maintenance, and ultimately lower their overall cost of ownership in deploying performance management solutions.

The nGenius packet flow switches enable the IT organization to better capture monitored traffic with high-density packet aggregation and intelligent filtering capabilities to enable a more flexible and comprehensive approach to capturing, collecting and leveraging important packet flows. Complementary to the widely deployed nGenius InfiniStream appliance, the nGenius packet flow switches are a cost-effective way to further strengthen a pervasive visibility strategy by providing the granular control of packet flows needed for performance management, security monitoring, compliance monitoring, management, UC monitoring, and other similar types of applications.

The NetScout TAP family provides the nGenius InfiniStream appliances and nGenius packet flow switches with full access to network traffic while remaining transparent to the networking infrastructure, and hence causing no disruption to data flows or protocol transactions. The family includes multiple options for link types and speeds to support versatile packet flow capturing at a wide variety of locations in the network hierarchy.

 

NetScout nGeniusONE Platform by NetScout

nGeniusONE Platform

The nGeniusONE Unified Performance Management Platform converges network and application performance management to deliver holistic service visibility across application tiers, end-to-end networks, and diverse user devices. Providing one cohesive, consistent set of analytics and views, based on one common database of metadata, nGeniusONE platform improves communication and collaboration across the different functional IT groups to enable unified service delivery management for complex, distributed IT services.

  • Service Dashboard  provides real-time, at a glance, holistic status visibility of all services and their network and application components. The dashboard also delivers alarms and analytics-based, intelligent early warnings to enable the network operations team to proactively and predictively protect service availability and performance.
  • Performance Analysis enables comprehensive, multi-dimensional analysis of application and network performance in context with the performance of all dependencies. The nGeniusONE platform includes pre-defined Service Monitors for common service provider services, a customizable Service Monitor to support user-defined service environments, and a Traffic Monitor for network performance management.
  • Session Analysis  enables session-level analysis with hop-by-hop transaction analysis.
  • Packet Analysis enables deep-dive, protocol-level analysis and forensic evidence collection.
