Lumacron Launches Athena 100G Transport Recorder
EDINBURGH -- Lumacron has announced availability of the world's fastest portable network recorders. The Athena series includes the flagship Athena 100G Transport Recorder, which combines sustained traffic capture at 100Gbps with Lumacron's unique signal auto-discovery capabilities. Also available are a 100GbE-optimised recorder for Metro and Enterprise Networks, and a 20G Transport version for legacy connectivity - all in a truly portable form factor.
“Lossless traffic capture is becoming an integral part of lawful intercept, SIGINT, data analytics and network performance monitoring” noted Alan McDade, CEO Lumacron Technology. “Understanding emerging threat signatures and network resilience around intrusion detection events relies not only on transient analysis of the traffic but also on storage of the data itself. Lumacron offers the most compelling portable offering in this space, with sustained 100Gbps packet capture to an encrypted disk array”.
Athena allows the user to capture up to 26 minutes of simplex 100Gbps data from the line, or to utilise stream-targeting and session-filtering capabilities to direct full-duplex traffic to an encrypted disk. Recorded data can be played back over flexible line interfaces in true full-duplex format with accurate timestamping or offloaded via PCAP for further analysis.
