WESTFORD, Mass. -- NetScout® Systems, Inc. today announced the nGenius® 3900 series packet flow switch, a highly extensible chassis-based, data center-class network monitoring switch that expands upon NetScout’s initial entry into the market with the nGenius 1500 series packet flow switch. The nGenius 3900 series packet flow switch enables scalable, highly available access to network traffic across distributed networks for use by the nGenius Service Assurance Solution or any network monitoring, performance management or security system. Based upon technology from the acquisition of ONPATH Technologies, the nGenius 3900 series packet flow switch delivers market-leading advances in performance and capacity with the highest 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port densities per rack unit, and per chassis, with an architecture ready to support 100 GbE interfaces. The nGenius 3900 series switch delivers intelligent traffic conditioning features on every port with sustained line rate performance and ultra-low latency. NetScout also announced availability of the nGenius PFS Management software, providing unified management and provisioning for the 3900 series switch that simplifies and automates manageability for large-scale, multi-location network monitoring deployments. With the continued high growth in complex service traffic flowing across enterprise, service provider and cloud-networks, the challenge of monitoring large, distributed IP service delivery networks continues to mount. The proliferation of high-speed 10 GbE network links coupled with the increasing number of management and security devices that require access to packet-flow traffic is driving the need for a higher capacity, more flexible and automated network monitoring fabric to facilitate ubiquitous traffic access. To achieve pervasive visibility, organizations need a higher density, seamless monitoring fabric that can provide the scale, capacity and flexibility needed to efficiently manage the distribution of critical traffic flows for monitoring and security applications. “As data centers consolidate and IP networks begin the next wave of transformation to support cloud deployments, the migration from one Gigabit to 10 Gigabit links is further adding to the challenges faced by IT teams tasked with monitoring and securing the network. IDC research shows that shipments of 10 Gigabit ports in 2012 have grown at more than 70 percent year over year, and we forecast the adoption of 40 Gigabit to accelerate at even a faster rate starting in 2013,” said Rohit Mehra, vice president, network infrastructure at IDC. “Many organizations are now building a monitoring fabric to simplify and streamline the distribution of traffic flows to extend the life of existing management tools. NetScout has leveraged its technology leadership position in the performance management market to deliver a powerful, differentiated network monitoring platform. With this announcement, IDC believes NetScout is well positioned to address the needs of the growing network monitoring switch market.” NetScout Systems Inc.
