APCON unveiled the new IntellaFlex 100G Ethernet monitoring solution.

“Enterprises and service providers are increasing bandwidth and capabilities at critical network hot spots. This is great for users, but there is a risk of less visibility for security monitoring,” said Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON. “The new IntellaFlex 100G solution is shipping now and is compatible with all existing IntellaFlex XR monitoring systems, ensuring an easy migration path.”

“The need for tools that require packet data shows no slowdown in growth, as network bandwidth and capabilities continue to grow faster than processing and storage technologies,” writes Vivek Bhalla, Principal Research Analyst, and Danilo Ciscato, Research Director, at Gartner, in the January 2016 Market Guide for Network Packet Brokers (NPB). “NPBs help solve this problem by massaging data before handing it off to tools, and these mediators are becoming critical to build-out and upgrade projects.”

With the new 100G monitoring solution, APCON’s IntellaFlex XR family provides complete network visibility and a wide range of features for traffic optimization to match the capacity of security and performance monitoring tools. An integrated IntellaFlex XR system offers:

- Monitoring of multiple ports for 1G, 10G, 40G and 100G traffic

- The ability to select traffic of interest with aggregation and Multi-Stage Filtering

- Load balance traffic to 10G and 1G network and security tools

- 100G trunking of multiple monitoring systems across campus locations

- Best-in-class WebXR GUI, TitanXR switch management and Mobile App

APCON’s IntellaFlex 100G solution is available immediately for purchase.
