Ixia has expanded its Ixia Anue Net Tool Optimizer (NTO) solutions, which the company says substantially extends actionable insight into complex, high-speed service provider and enterprise data center networks. The Anue NTO provides complete network visibility into physical and virtual networks and allows large enterprises and mobile carriers to monitor the increasing number of 100GbE network ports with existing 1, 10 and 40GbE monitoring tools. Ixia says the NTO 100GbE provides investment protection by ensuring that lower bandwidth monitoring tools can connect to higher-speed backbones. The release of the Network Visibility Operating System (NVOS) v3.8 and the 100GbE Interface Module supports new capabilities that improve forensic analysis capabilities, advance application performance monitoring and simplify security monitoring of 100GbE networks. This multi-speed monitoring capability helps companies preserve their previous investments in network visibility tools.
