Product Description

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.
