Niagara Packet Brokers – Fixed-configuration NPB

Niagara Network’s family
Fixed-configuration Network Packet Brokers

Niagara Network’s family of Fixed-configuration Network Packet Brokers are designed to optimize throughput, performance and network port density.

Niagara Networks’ Fixed-configuration NPB systems are ideal when the network topology is well-defined, when rack space is at a premium and when external passive taps, span ports and appliances are aggregated at the Packet Broker. Niagara’s Modular NPB solutions address more specialized needs by offering complete front panel flexibility of TAP, Bypass and network ports.

Niagara’s purpose-built Fixed-configuration Network Packet Brokers provide 1, 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit connectivity and enable complete Network Visibility by optimizing traffic flows for Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention, Analytics, and other network tools.

Niagara packet processing technology includes dedicated hardware support for Layer 1 through Layer 4 filtering, and acceleration for network tunneling protocols. The benefits include lossless forwarding, extremely low latency and highly granular statistics.
