Niagara Packet Brokers – MODULAR NPB


Niagara Network’s modular 2847 family of Network Packet Brokers provide the ultimate in configuration flexibility. Providing multiple 100 Gigabit capable bays, a few simple steps provide literally hundreds of combinations of network connectivity and unique Bypass and TAP functionality:

1) Select one of four 2U chassis configurations based on your connectivity requirements.
2) Choose from a wide selection of network I/O modules, Copper or Fiber Network TAP modules or Bypass modules to match your topology.
3) Add or swap modules when your needs change and as your network evolves.

Niagara packet processing technology includes dedicated hardware support for Layer 2 through Layer 4 filtering, load balancing and acceleration for network tunneling protocols. Our non-blocking architecture, extremely low latency, packet manipulation capability and highly granular statistics create the baseline for dynamic visibility and end-to-end transparency in your network.

All Niagara 2847 Network Packet Broker chassis support NOSE, Niagara’s advanced Network Visibility Operating System. NOSE provides powerful Layer 2-4 packet filtering functionality and load balancing for connected network tools. This combination of modular build-as-you-grow hardware and powerful, intuitive software provides the perfect Network Visibility platform to support:

Enabling high reliability for inline network security appliances
Passive network monitoring tools
Network performance analysis
High speed Network TAPs and TAP aggregation
The Niagara 2847 includes redundant hot-swappable power supplies, hot-swap fans and dedicated management interfaces. All of our Network Packet Broker systems have been rigorously tested to meet the requirements of Service Providers and Enterprise Data Centers
