Simple and ultra-efficient, aggregators provide access to full-duplex links using just asingle NIC on the monitoring or analyzer tool. Products combine each side of a networklink and copy aggregated data to one or more monitoring ports. Net Optics offers twofamilies of aggregator taps to fit your specific needs:

Port Aggregator Taps

Combine traffic from one network link and copy to either one or two monitoring tools

Link Aggregator Taps

Combine traffic from 1 to 24 network links for up to 24 monitoring tools.

The Ixia Net Optics family of Bypass™ Switches offers you trouble-free access ports to support your inline network security and monitoring devices.

Because the Bypass is a passive appliance, link traffic continues to flow even if the Bypass itself loses power.

A “Heartbeat” packet ensures that a monitoring appliance is actually passing traffic: If this packet doesn’t return to the Bypass Switch, the switch instantly goes into bypass mode and takes that appliance out of the traffic path.

Bypass Switches provide fail-safe Inline tool protection for your security and monitoring devices. The Bypass Switch utilizes a heartbeat packet to protect the network link from application, link or power failure on the attached monitoring device.

  • Bypass Switches provide automated failover protection
  • Available in single segment or eight segment (high density) models
  • Support for 10Mbps to 40Gbps connectivity

Ixia's Net Optics has intelligent bypass switches that provide protection on the full duplex traffic streams connected to the monitoring tools. The Bypass augments network-monitoring capability through the use of microsecond resolution heartbeat packets, SNMP Traps, field upgradable software, and an easy-to-use Web UI.

Inline traffic aggregation, filtering, deduplication and load balancing

Network Packet Broker (NPB) is category of compact, hardware-based, rack-mounted devices that offer a new approach for handling and manipulating network packets. NPBs optimize the access and visibility of traffic from one or many network links to monitoring, security and acceleration tools. NPB capabilities include:

Out-of-band traffic aggregation, filtering, deduplication and load balancing

Ixia's Net Tool Optimizer® (NTO) portfolio of network visibility solutions will revolutionize the way you monitor your network. The Ixia portfolio of NTO network monitoring switches, also known as network packet brokers, provides complete visibility into physical and virtual networks, improves network security and optimizes monitoring tool performance.
