nGenius 3900 series packet flow switch meets the challenge of providing targeted packet-flow access to an increasing number of network monitoring systems including the nGeniusONE unified performance management platform as well as other monitoring and security systems. nGenius 3900 series switch is an intelligent, modular, highly scalable network monitoring switch capable of line rate packet-flow aggregation, replication, load balancing, and filtering.
The distributed cut-through switching architecture delivers performance at scale and supports up to 8.6 Tbps full-duplex (17.2 Tbps aggregate) throughput to address the most demanding, high traffic volume environments. The nGenius 3900 series packet flow switch supports up to 576 ports of 1/10 GbE or 48 ports of 40 GbE in a single chassis with intelligent traffic conditioning features on every port with sustained line rate performance, and ultra-low sustained latency port-to-port and across the switch fabric. These high-scale capacities enable network architects to consolidate the network monitoring fabric into fewer switches with less complexity. This reduces undesirable bandwidth bottlenecks and the unnecessary consumption of ports for inter-switch links, simplifies the monitoring architecture, and eases manageability and provisioning.
Leveraging a common interface module, nGenius 3900 series switches supports 1/10/40 GbE connectivity to enable flexible deployment from the network edge to core as well as the attachment of diverse monitoring tools. A highly resilient switch architecture enables reliable operation in face of component failure, and facilitates hot swapping of modules. In addition, the switches are manageable via nGenius PFS Management software which enables streamlined, unified management of multi-switch deployments as well as secure, multi-team administration.
