Indigo Pro

Centralized Network Management for Visibility Solutions

Problem: More devices, more monitoring headaches

The more devices on a network, the harder it is to configure and manage an entire platform. Separately monitoring network controller switches, network packet brokers, physical and virtual network taps, and third-party devices places an enormous burden on IT, and can negatively impact a technology’s return on investment. Today’s organizations need a single management console to centrally monitor multiple devices and reduce administrative complexity.

Ixia Indigo Pro

Solution: An all-in-one platform for device discovery

Ixia Indigo Pro is a unified network management system for centrally monitoring and configuring multiple devices, including network controller switches, network packet brokers, and third-party devices. Rather than manage each device separately, the platform discovers, configures, and monitors all the visibility solutions deployed on a network.

The platform’s standard interfaces allow for easy-to-understand configuration, statistics collection, and health monitoring. By automating processes such as software upgrades and configuration backups, Ixia Indigo Pro simplifies IT administrative tasks that would otherwise take days or weeks to complete. With its dramatic time and cost savings, Ixia Indigo Pro offers both greater network availability and higher ROI.
