A Flexible and Powerful Approach to Network Visibility

Problem: Cost-effective scalability

New applications, an upgraded network with a need to extend the life of expensive tools, the fear of looming security threats—these are just a few of the reasons why organizations seek complete and powerful network visibility. But as networks and their monitoring systems grow, so do data center–related expenses such as power and rack space. What’s more, adding disparate solutions to boost visibility can lead to a decentralized network monitoring system and prevent you from making the most of your investments in existing technologies.

NetTool Optimizer

Solution: Centralized control for improved ROI

The Ixia Vision 7300 chassis, part of the Vision family of Ixia's network packet brokers (NPBs), provides end-to-end network visibility to the tools that manage, analyze, and secure your physical and virtual networks. The Vision 7300 provides flexible and powerful functionality including traffic aggregation, filtering, secure socket layer (SSL) decryption with data masking, deduplication, and intelligent packet management with line-rate, zero-loss packet processing on networks up to 100 GE for both Layer 2–4 traffic, and Layer 7 application-level data. One of the most scalable network visibility frameworks in the industry, the Vision 7300 is able to expand as your network monitoring needs grow, and adapt as new applications are added or new security threats arise.

Because of this flexibility, the Vision 7300 integrates easily into any network or data-center environment, giving you centralized control of your network monitoring system in one simple, rack-mountable unit. Such control and simplicity deliver significant bottom-line benefits as well: the smaller data-center footprint consumes less rack space and reduces energy costs, and you realize a greater return on your investment in existing technologies. 

Visibility Intelligence

Stack up Ixia’s leading visibility intelligence features to optimize your traffic analysis and security tool performance. Used with a network packet broker, virtual or cloud platform, the extensive set of intelligent features allows you to modify, mold and transport traffic specific to tool needs. Moreover, we provide industry-specific, specialized capabilities. Each feature is executed with a purpose-built design to ensure you get the best performance whether in a physical data-center or in the cloud. To learn more, click on each stack.
