Ixia Advanced Feature Module (AFM)
SKU: Ixia AFM
The Ixia NTO family of Advanced Feature Modules (AFM) helps network engineers to improve monitoring tool performance by optimizing the monitored network traffic to include only the essential information needed for analysis.
Network monitoring is critical to network visibility in enterprise data centers and the IP-based segments of telecommunication service provider networks. The importance of monitoring is reflected in the large investments large enterprises and service providers make in monitoring tools and the staff to manage them. However, demand for higher data rates outpaces gains in monitoring tool performance. With networks growing in speed and little budget to upgrade tools, network engineers need ways to get better performance from their existing monitoring tools.
