SANTA ROSA, CA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company delivering advanced solutions to accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced the new Vision 400 Series Network Packet Brokers, to deliver advanced visibility in high-speed 400G hybrid networks.
Networks are increasing in speed and complexity to support hybrid IT networks and multi-cloud business deployments for applications such as 5G, remote working, artificial intelligence (AI), video streaming, and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR). Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) recently released a Network Visibility report examining this trend, finding that 96% of organizations consider packet analysis to be critical to cybersecurity operations, but only 34% are successful with their network visibility architecture. The report further confirmed that network (or packet) data is critical to improving the customer experience, as well as understanding and securing those networks.
To address this growing challenge, Keysight has released new, full-featured 400G-capable network packet brokers for enterprise and service providers to improve application delivery experience and security posture against advanced persistent threats:
- Vision Edge 400S provides fast and scalable rack and edge traffic aggregation – Featuring a variety of port configurations and advanced tunneling, IP header filtering, load balancing, and time stamping capabilities that ensure organizations are prepared for demanding performance.
- sight 400 provides advanced capabilities for demanding core network security monitoring environments – Supports sophisticated packet processing for complex overlay networks, including deduplication, header stripping, packet trimming, and a deep understanding of the applications running on the networks with application identification, geolocation, and decryption.
“The new 400 Series Network Packet Brokers are a strong addition to the Keysight visibility solutions we already use to secure and monitor our environment across the state of Texas,” said Cam Beasley, chief information security officer at the University of Texas flexible support for network speeds from 10G to 400G and advanced packet grooming capabilities allow us to scale to accommodate new campus needs, such as MPLS and SDN.”
New features offer new levels of performance
Benefits of the new Vision 400 platforms include:
A highly scalable all-in-one solution based on Keysight’s hardware-based no-packet-loss architecture that enables customers to monitor and secure their business applications.
Advanced packet grooming capabilities that remove and terminate 20 different tunnel headers to eliminate blind spots in complex software-defined networks used for application delivery.
Multiple port configurations to support current network performance while ensuring networks can be upgraded with 10G/25G/40G/50G/100G/200G/400G offerings.
Support for NRZ and PAM4 standards for maximum port density and flexibility.
“Given the complexity and data demands of today’s networks, Keysight understands that IT and SecOps teams need scalable, powerful and highly flexible network monitoring solutions that provide complete visibility into everything happening on their network,” said Recep Ozdag, General Manager and Vice President by Keysight Network Visibility Solutions. “We are pleased to announce the Vision 400 Series Packet Brokers, which customers can use to support and secure applications as they transition to high-speed 400G networks.”
