Expand Your Visibility Fabric with Advanced Packet Broker Functionality
The nGenius Packet Flow Switch (PFS) 7000 series models operate at speeds from 1Gbps to 100Gbps. In addition to core packet broker functionality, such as filtering, load balancing, aggregation and replication, they provide advanced capabilities including header stripping, L2GRE tunnel origination and termination, time stamping (PFS 7120 model) and external PowerSafe TAP integration. Enabled with self-organizing mesh technology, the nGenius PFS 7000 series easily scales for massive network monitoring needs.
Simplify Your Visibility Architecture
Simplify and grow your visibility architecture on demand, with up to 3.2 Tbps throughput for 10/25/40/50/100 deployments
Easily Scale Deployments
Easily scale deployments with intelligent, self-organizing and self-healing mesh technology
De-risk Security Installs
De-risk security deployment with active inline traffic forwarding, security service chaining, health checks and external PowerSafe bypass TAPs
High-port Count for 10/25/40/100GbE Deployments
The nGenius PFS 7000 packs a lot of interfaces into a compact form factor and is suitable for branch or data center deployments. Connect HD Fiber TAPs and any number of tools, including the NETSCOUT InfiniStream® platform, to the nGenius PFS 7000, and easily manage a diverse and complex monitoring network. Flow-aware load balancing enables intelligent control of traffic distribution to the monitoring tools, increasing output capacity while maintaining session integrity. For example, a 100GbE tap from the network can be captured and automatically balanced across multiple 10GbE or 40GbE monitoring tool ports based on user-defined session criteria.
PFS Monitor provides end-to-end visibility into the health and amount of traffic coming in and out of the Packet Flow Switch (PFS) fabric.
The External PowerSafe TAP (EPT) 3296 is a low-cost, flexible solution to provide active inline security, with bypass protection to guard against power failure.
