Scale your monitoring solutions like never before

Securing and monitoring your network has never been more important. Visibility and data capture infrastructure play a critical role by providing access and management of network traffic from multiple points and allowing you to optimize the performance of monitoring, security and analysis tools.

Advanced visibility solutions from Datacom Systems help you take control of your network, eliminate blind spots, and reduce network downtime.

The SINGLEstream High Density Aggregation TAP system provides a purpose-built high density solution for data aggregation, replication, filtering and load balancing to streamline critical data functions while optimizing existing infrastructure and port utilization.

Highlights

  • Consolidate monitoring tools to reduce management expenses and lower tool costs
  • Monitor multiple links simultaneously for more efficient use of monitoring tools
  • Flexible, scalable solution – deploy what you need, when you need it
  • Compact design helps save space
  • Fault tolerant, passive bypass ensures network integrity
  • SFP+ ports support a wide range of speeds and DAC
  • SNMP, SYSLOG and email notification mechanisms
  • Radius, TACACS+ authentications
  • Redundant power sources and fans
  • Self-discovery mesh network capable for single control and data plane
  • sFlow and IPFIX capable

Many-to-Any monitoring access aggregates network traffic and provides visibility for one or more monitoring tools. Aggregate and reassemble full duplex conversations from one or more trunked links. Perfect for tools that don’t support multiple monitoring interfaces or for redundant networks, EtherChannel, load balanced servers, and asymmetrically routed traffic.

Any-to-Many configurations replicate copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools with monitoring access to the same links. In addition to eliminating contention for scarce SPAN ports and test access points, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.

Balance traffic across multiple ports to allow growth as the volume of data increases.  Load balancing helps prevent loss of data by enabling deployment of redundant security tools that can back each other up, in the event of failure or during while their software updates. As links get faster, you need to be able to distribute traffic across lower speed analysis tools. Load balancing allows you to extend the life of existing lower speed devices as your network traffic increases.

Instead of tools attempting to keep up with high-speed aggregates traffic streams, the VERSAstream can apply packet filters to the data to increase tool efficiency and eliminate port oversubscription. Line-rate hardware filtering on each port allows you to customize and streamline the amount and type of data each connected monitoring tool receives. Because they are receiving only traffic of interest, tools run faster, data is more manageable, and issues are resolved quicker. Filter on – Ipv4 Src/Dst Address; MAC Address; Protocol, Port, and Ethertypes (e.g. MPLS, VLAN, IPv6 Src/Dst Address)
