SAN FRANCISCO -- Today at Cisco Live, Cisco's annual IT and communications conference, VSS Monitoring, a leading provider of network packet brokers (NPBs), announced the addition of two groundbreaking products in its vBroker(TM) Series offering. The new products are the vBroker 6000 and the vBroker 520. At 6-terabit-per-second performance, the VB6000 offers the highest density, most scalable blade-in-chassis NPB solution in the industry. The VB520 supports 100G networks and provides 400Gbps of line rate packet brokering in a fixed-configuration, 2U appliance, making it the most cost-effective and flexible 100G/40G network visibility solution on the market. Both products support the company's Unified Visibility Plane and vMesh Architecture, which optimizes network infrastructure for high performance monitoring in high-speed physical, virtual and software-defined networks.

The VSS Monitoring Unified Visibility Plane, powered by the VSS vMesh Architecture, protects investments in and optimizes the use of network and application performance tools and security systems that are widely deployed by carriers, service providers, cloud operators and large enterprises. This distributed architecture adds the critical missing element to existing data and control plane models driving next-generation high-speed networks, enhancing network visibility by providing a line rate "true copy" of network traffic to passive tools and by supporting dynamic service chains for in-line security systems that are connected to the VSS vMesh.

The VB6000 and VB520 are fully compatible with the vMesh Architecture, ensuring unprecedented network visibility, scale capacity, and traffic optimization. Adding high-density chassis and 100G appliances to the Unified Visibility Plane enables operators, security analysts and network engineers to access and see everything in a local network or high-speed wide area network. The VSS vMesh Architecture enables the VB6000 and VB520 to interconnect with other vBroker systems and with other systems as well, including the vProtector Series, Distributed Series, and Finder Series models, in a high performance, auto discovering, and self configuring visibility network: the Unified Visibility Plane.
