We offer an extensive library of collateral and videos to help a range of viewers - from those new to Ixia products, though actual users of our products - to understand how we can help you solve various testing and network visibility challenges.
Ixia Portfolio Ixia Portfolio NTO Network Packet Brokers: Better Data for Better Decisions With networks and data centers becoming more complex and application-aware, maintaining performance and security requires 100% visibility into the network. Ixia's Net Tool Optimizer® (NTO) network packet brokers (NPBs) revolutionize traditional monitoring by adding intelligence and delivering complete visibility into physical and virtual networks. NTO intelligently connects data centers and service provider networks with monitoring tools and improves ROI by extending the value of lower-speed tools to high-speed environments Advanced features such as aggregation, filtering, and load balancing deliver precisely the right traffic to each monitoring and security device with industry-best ease of use and drag-and-drop operation. Patented filtering and de-duplication technology ensures each monitoring tool gets exactly the right data needed for analysis that improves delivery of applications to end-users, saving valuable IT time. Phantom vTaps: Virtual Visibility Eliminates Blind Spots Extend Visibility to Your Virtual Environments Virtualization brings a host of operational and economic benefits, but migration can bring new challenges for deployment and security. Complete visibility must be extended to virtualized environments to ensure application performance, prevent dangerous blind spots between Virtual Machines (VMs), and keep networks in compliance with industry regulations. Ixia's Net Optics Phantom Virtualization Taps™ (vTaps) bridge the gap between physical and virtual networks and visibility infrastructures so that you can monitor the virtualized network with your existing set of tools. Residing within hypervisors, these versatile software devices deliver complete visibility into east-west traffic passing between VMs within hypervisors, sending traffic of interest to the tools that are already monitoring your physical network. Optimize Performance & Security with Real-time App & Threat Intelligence Improve Performance and Decrypt Dangerous Threats Ixia’s The Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) Processor delivers real-time application data to monitoring tools to empower IT to make better decisions based on better data. ATI provides rich information on user behavior and location to help identify unknown applications, flag suspicious traffic, and leverage usage trends to improve performance. ATI extends visibility beyond layer 4 data for deep knowledge of your network, including application bandwidth and geo-location of traffic. With Gartner predicting some 50% of threats will leverage SSL encryption by 2017, Ixia’s Application & Threat Intelligence (ATI) Processor also delivers a powerful security advantage through industry-first stateful SSL decryption. The solution can be deployed as a 48 x 10GE interface card standalone in a compact 1-rack-unit chassis (the NTO 6212), or within a Ixia Net Tool Optimizer (NTO) 7300 network packet broker (NPB) to achieve higher densities. Ixia NTO 5288 Keep pace with the exploding volumes of data and traffic on your network. Ixia's Net Tool Optimizer® (NTO) 5288 offers high-density 10G / 40G / 100G network packet brokering for large, complex data centers, enabling monitoring of 1GE, 10GE, 40GE, and 100GE ports using your existing monitoring tools. Aggregating data from multiple visibility points in the network, the 5288 ensures delivery of critical network traffic to the appropriate monitoring and security tools, enhancing performance to improve network performance, increase productivity, and reduce the risk of network outages. An ideal solution for enterprise data centers with increased bandwidth requirements, NTO 5288 provides up to 64 10GE ports, 16 40GE ports, or 4 100GE port, NTO 5288 enables monitoring of virtual and private cloud infrastructures at full line rate while reducing downtime and troubleshooting efforts. Ixia Net Tool Optimizer 7300 A New Perspective on Network Visibility The Network Tool Optimizer (NTO) 7300 delivers a new perspective on network visibility delivering the right data to the right tools at the right time—without the need for crash carts or change requests. This versatile solution and Ixia’s Visibility Architecture provide the most scalable framework along with expandability, management flexibility, control and simplicity. The NTO 7300 combines disparate solutions into a smaller data center footprint, saving power and rack space while improving ROI. Designed for large enterprises and service providers, this NEBS 3 Certified 7303 chassis enables centralized control of your network monitoring system in a single, simple, rack-mountable unit. NTO 7300 improves the usefulness of existing IT tools across both physical and virtual networks while delivering high density, performance, and availability. Ixia ControlTower™ Network Visibility Architecture Complete Visibility Into Your Network Ixia ControlTower™ helps enterprises and service providers achieve end-to-end visibility within their physical, virtual, and SDN networks. An advanced, distributed network visibility architecture for centralized, intelligent monitoring, ControlTower provides IT with access to monitoring and diagnostic tools from any point within the network. The ControlTower solution enables smooth and rapid scaling, flexible deployment, and the ability to implement multiple segments and centralized, intelligent monitoring.
