Description: Ixia Net Optics iTap 10GbE Fiber Port Aggregator - Network monitoring device - 10 GigE - 10GBase-SR - 850 nm
Mfr Part #: IPA-50SR5-XFP
The Ixia Net Optics iTap 10GbE Fiber Port Aggregator makes network monitoring dramatically easier. The combination of a permanent, passive access point and remote monitoring of key traffic indicators increases management options and expedites your response to troubled links.
When an iTap Port Aggregator detects high utilization, it warns you with LEDs on the unit and notifications to monitoring software. You have no need for other time-consuming tools to see these trouble spots.
- Convenient, browser-based web manager
- Intuitive management information base (MIB) for third-party SNMP tools
- Platform-based system manager
- Centralized, single point control and visibility
- Simplified, at-a-glance monitoring from front panel
- Completely passive and device neutral
- Front panel display and LEDs
Real-time utilization and peak traffic information displayed on the front panel saves you time and money spent using other tools to get basic information. Alarm LEDs indicate if traffic levels have exceeded a set threshold, allowing you to respond quickly to changing traffic conditions.
- Web manager
Without any specialized software, you can access the traffic information monitored by any iTap Port Aggregator. All you need is a computer with a browser and access to the IP address of the iTap Port Aggregator. No matter where you are, you can control your iTap Port Aggregator and monitor traffic information.
- System manager
This function uses SNMP to give you single-point control and visibility into any link in the network with an iTap Port Aggregator, anywhere in the world. When distributed on strategic links, iTap Port Aggregators provide baseline information and early warning alarms to help you deploy your security and monitoring devices more effectively over more links.
- Command line interface
The password-protected command line interface gives you complete access to all of the iTap Port Aggregator's functionality via an RS232 port. Most importantly, you can use the CLI to disable the management port and prevent the front panel display from showing traffic information.
- Management information base (MIB)
Use the iTap Port Aggregator with your current SNMP management tool. MIB and SNMP traps are completely compatible with popular SNMP tools such as OpenView and Tivoli.
Ixia's proven port aggregation technology allows you to monitor traffic using a single NIC on your monitoring device. Unlike any other port aggregator tap, the iTap Port Aggregator monitors utilization levels of both sides of the full-duplex link so this information is not lost.
- Half-duplex mode
With the ability to configure the iTap Port Aggregator as a standard network tap, you can satisfy two different types of monitoring requirements with a single device. Half-duplex mode enables monitoring tools to see all network traffic even when the aggregated full-duplex throughput exceeds 10 Gbps.
- Timestamping and packet slicing
Selectable using the CLI or remote interfaces, add new dimensions to your monitoring solution. Timestamping appends precise timing information to each packet sent to the monitor tools. With packet slicing, monitoring tool bandwidth and processing requirements are reduced because the monitoring ports receive only a user-selectable number of bytes from the front of each packet, for example, just the packet headers.
