Sharpen your accuracy! Traffic aggregated from different links can look like a single, indistinguishable data stream to your monitoring tools. By tagging each packet with the port it arrived on, a tool simply looks at the tag and sorts it out into separate streams. In addition, multiple options to manage egress and ingress tagging were added, supporting your uniqe use case.
Description fields added for filters and for Tx and Rx of each port. Now you can document the configuration in the device itself instead of needing a bunch of spreadsheets to keep track of everything.
Increase tool-sharing capability of our innovative xBalancer™. Multiple links can share the same inline tool—usually an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). Port tags identify which link the packets belong to: After they go through the IPS, Director xStream / iLinkAgg xStream disaggregates the traffic and sends it along to the correct link.
Boost Network Intelligence with increased statistics counters from 6 to 62 stats! Plus—most importantly—new stats show packet size distribution, priority level distribution, and protocols of unicast, broadcast, multicast, IPv4, and IPv6. Wonder how much IPv6 traffic you have on your network? Just check the IPv6 statistics counters! This is really important for managing your overall network configuration.
Increased Filters—4000 Plus!
Perform interception on 4000 targets at a time—ideal for Lawful Intercept, 4G/LTE and HPC! (Director xStream™ only)
Streamline management of your overall network configuration with the ability to import/export configuration—an ideal way to ease network management.
