Net Optics Director xStream
Advanced Port Aggregation/Regeneration, Packet Filtering, and Static Load Balancing Capabilities to Optimize 10 Gigabit Network Monitoring
In addition to high performance link aggregation, fully configurable port mapping, remote monitoring and management and advanced SMMP support, Director xStream offers advanced Network Packet Broker capabilities including NETCONF support for SDN integration, high availability across multiple xStream devices, packet slicing, a visual filter management tool, MPLS traffic filtering, port rate limitation and selectable port modes.
With twenty-four 10G/1G network/monitor ports all connected with SFP+ interfaces and a non-blocking ultra low latency architecture, Director xStream allows to perform various tasks such as sharing a pool of monitoring tools across a large number of network links, send traffic to multiple tools, change VLAN settings or strip packets. By leveraging Net Optics ‘double your ports’ capability with the flexible architecture and management, any port can be used for either network or monitor, supporting 480G with 24 full duplex or 48 simplex links.
Director xStream provides significant cost savings as it allows network managers to apply tools to links with dissimilar media rather than purchasing new tools. For example, traffic from a 10-Gbps fiber link can be filtered or load balanced to multiple 1-Gbps copper-interface monitoring tools; and multiple 1-Gbps links can be aggregated to a 10-Gbps monitoring tool.
