Net Optics Provides New Link Aggregator Solutions for Converged Networks

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - August 27, 2007) - Net Optics, Inc. continues its dedication to providing increased network monitoring efficiency by announcing a newly released family of Link Aggregator products. We've achieved a new level of visibility for monitoring network performance and security threats by providing four separate monitoring ports in a single device. Each port is capable of seeing 100 percent of your networks data, voice and video traffic from up to four network or eight Span ports.

New features include support for 10/100 Zero Delay™ technology, interfaces for 10/100/1000 (Triple-speed) Span or in-line and Gigabit fiber network speeds. Additionally, the use of small-form factor pluggable (SFP) monitor port interfaces gives the option to utilize existing equipment, regardless of its NIC type. For example, the increased flexibility allows Gigabit copper, fiber transceivers or a combination of both to be deployed in any of the four monitoring ports.

"This new family of Link Aggregators addresses our customers needs to consolidate their monitoring requirements into a single 1U-high device," said Trent Fierro, Marketing Manager at Net Optics. "We've also delivered on our promise to provide a variety of interface types that our customers need for today's networks, while delivering future flexibility."

As with all Net Optics Products, Link Aggregators are reliable, passive, in-line devices that do not introduce a point of failure. Full-duplex traffic, including layer 1 and 2 errors is forwarded to monitoring tools for comprehensive performance and security analysis.

Combined with monitoring tools, this family of 100% passive Link Aggregators create a versatile test system for improved network visibility, and network performance management. Dedicated access to network links also eliminates the downtime required to relocate or deploy required monitoring tools specific to data, voice or video traffic analysis. IT staff can now share a common access point that enables a collaborative approach to monitoring converged networks.
