Ixia's Network Access Solutions

NetworkVisibility

IXIA Visibility Network Packet Broker

Ixia Visibility Solutions provide real-time, end-to-end visibility, insight and security into physical, virtual, SDN and NFV networks, delivering the control, coverage and performance in a seamless fashion to protect and improve crucial networking, data center and cloud business assets. 

Step 1: Capture all your network traffic by tapping every network link 

Step 2: Through non-production links, traffic flows to one or more Vision network packet brokers where duplicate data is removed then filtered using NetStack, PacketStack, SecureStack  and AppStack visibility intelligence capabilities

Step 3: Your security, performance and monitoring tools receive the most appropriate data stream, tailored specifically for that tool; your tools work more efficiently, and most effectively

 

Network Access Solutions from IXIA

Public and Private Cloud Visibility 

 NMSaaS Cloud

 Migrating mission-critical workloads to the cloud requires actionable intelligence for IT security and analytics tools—which are only as good as the data they see. IT’s challenge is to ensure that the infrastructure delivers applications that are reliable, fast, and secure. Business changes are forcing IT to gain greater insight and understanding of the network to maximize performance. Ixia’s CloudLens™ delivers end-to-end visibility and provides context-aware data processing across all cloud environments — public, private and hybrid cloud — making applications stronger by providing a high level of network intelligence.

 

Network Packet Broker (NPB) Solutions

 VE401

Data is routed to one or many network packet brokers; the fabric of packet brokers serves to organize and streamline data for specific monitoring, performance and security tools. Known for their easy-to-use web interface, Ixia's packet brokers do all the heavy lifting when it comes to managing filter rules, making it easy to manage change while freeing up valuable time to focus on other things. Data is then sent to security, performance and analytics tools; these tools can perform at an optimal level because they receive the right data in the right format and at a manageable throughput. In the case of in-line deployments, approved data is then sent back into your network. Ixia offers single pane of glass management and configuration options, which allows you to scale in both physical and virtual environments.

 

Network Taps, Aggregators and Regenerators

 Main Tap Black

 The Ixia family of taps provides 100 percent visibility and permanent passive access points into the customer’s network. When a monitoring tool is needed, simply connect the device to the tap instead of taking down the link and interrupting traffic. Taps pass all network traffic—including Layers 1 and 2 errors—without introducing bottlenecks or points of failure. Regardless of interface or location in the network, we provide a tap solution, supporting copper, multimode and single mode fiber at speeds up to 100Gbps with media conversion models available.

 

 Bypass Switches

 BypassFamilyBlack

 When a network monitoring device such as an IPS is deployed inline in a network, it is vital to ensure that traffic continues to flow in all circumstances, even if the IPS loses power, so that mission-critical business applications remain available. A bypass switch is an excellent solution that keeps traffic flowing, for failsafe implementation of inline security tools.

 

Visibility Management -Ixia Fabric Controller

 Visibility Management

 Ixia offers an easy-to-use, intuitive click-and-drop NPB interface to allow operators to make connections from taps or SPAN ports to their connected tools. The configuration of filters is streamlined and easy, with overall setup requiring minimal time and effort, even for large shops and complicated networks. No professional services or expensive training is required to learn and implement the Ixia visibility solutions. This eliminates the need to use time-consuming command line interface (CLI) or web user interface (WebUI) dialogs, or invest hours or days designing complex logic. 

Ixia Fabric Controller (IFC) is a SDN controller for visibility that is allows multiple network packet brokers to work collectively within a single plan of glass. IFC extends a full set of API controls and integrates with Cisco ACI, as well as other SDN architectures. 

 

Threat Intelligence Gateway-ThreatARMOR

 ThreatInt

 Block connections from known malicious IP addresses and untrusted countries while preventing phishing replies and botnet connections. Reduce ‘alert fatigue’ by stemming the flood of alerts from SIEMs and security tools. ThreatARMOR blocks known bad traffic to identify breaches faster.
