APCON’s IntellaFlex 3288-XR, with 2.88 Terabits per second throughput, is a new high port density switch for enterprise data centers
Wilsonville, Ore., March 26, 2014 – APCON, the most comprehensive intelligent network monitoring solution for Fortune 1000 companies and service providers, will debut its IntellaFlex 3288-XR network monitoring switch at Interop Las Vegas, April 1-4 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. APCON will host IntellaFlex 3288-XR switch demonstrations with media at booth 627 throughout the event.
Released on March 26, 2014, the IntellaFlex 3288-XR switch offers non-blocking connectivity of 288 10G signals for a total throughput of 2.88 Terabits per second. The new switch assures 100-percent network visibility, and is designed to save data center space, preserve existing tool investments and reduce costs on new tool purchases. With redundancy, high availability and a new extensible backplane, the IntellaFlex 3288-XR is a high-bandwidth intelligent network monitoring solution designed for large data centers requiring a highly scalable monitoring switch to meet the demands of increased traffic analysis.
“APCON’s new IntellaFlex 3288-XR switch provides a rock-solid foundation for future network traffic expansion. Coupled with advances in monitoring services such as time stamping, packet slicing and multi stage filtering, this IntellaFlex switch caters to the increasing demand for large capacity switches within enterprise networks,” said Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON. “We’re excited to bring this next-generation monitoring switch to the industry, providing the stability, security and scalability crucial in today’s network environment.”
APCON Products on Display at Interop Las Vegas
In addition to its IntellaFlex 3288-XR switch, APCON will display the following products:
IntellaFlex 36-Port 10G Time Stamping and Packet Slicing Blade is a Best of INTEROP – Performance finalist, recognizing APCON’s innovation and technology advancements. It has the best precision time stamping available at sub 10nS resolution, supports the most accurate timing sources in the industry and provides the highest port density for time stamping on the market. The same blade offers packet slicing to remove confidential information such as credit card numbers or healthcare information, allowing organizations to meet compliancy regulations. Packet slicing can remove un-wanted payloads, relieving tools from processing un-analyzed data and increasing network monitoring and security tool performance.
Multi Stage Filtering (MSF) is APCON’s new industry-unique ingress filtering technique. MSF is managed within a graphical user interface and offers limitless flexibility in filtering rules. Providing pinpoint accuracy, APCON’s MSF stacks allow users to specify exactly the packets to be delivered through the switching fabric to each egress port on the switch. This eliminates the threat of oversubscribing tool ports and dropped packets, and maximizes switch and tool utilization and efficiency.
TITAN provides a single, centralized point of switch management for network monitoring in a multi-switch environment. TITAN can easily help share expensive network performance and security analysis devices throughout the network.
Leading up to Interop, APCON released a free downloadable eBook titled “Challenges in Today’s Enterprise Network Operations” to inform engineers on how modern network monitoring tools can significantly impact stability in the high-pressure, high-stakes world of the Network Operations Center.
