Network Security for Service Providers

We Have Your Back
 


Service Providers often experience complex and intricate challenges that are unique to their industry. Our ability to develop innovative and intelligent systems that serve our customers their every need, to face these challenges, has been highly beneficial for all of our customers.

 

 

Like you, we are constantly striving to improve our technology to best suit your service. 

The Challenge

Raising
Traffic
Volumes

  • Want access to large amounts of data with existing tools

  • Downtime becomes a greater risk and need for quality TAPs and Packet Brokers increases

Increased

Network
Complexity

  • Increased expenditure in network infrastructure

  • Managing both network and security teams increases in difficulty

  • Less effective network visibility

Failure
To
Optimize

  • Uncompetitive latency and bandwidth damages quality.

  • The user experience, operational efficiency and security suffers

The Solution

Raising Traffic Volumes:

Increased Network Complexity:

Failure to Optimize:

Many service providers want to increase their data monitoring without buying new tools. Network Critical provides an intelligent aggregation solution that allows for users to keep their existing tools. This method is highly cost effective and equally, if not more, high in quality.

With access to large amounts of data, 100G/400G networks and present that traffic to your existing monitoring platforms. Manipulation of traffic : slice, dice, filter

By implementing a network packet broker platform the user benefits from 100% network visibility. This ensures that both network and security teams have access to traffic when required, without any internal disputes. It is vital to increase and maximize your network visibility in order to gain the truest information and make well-judged decisions. Plus, you can gain a significant cost saving on your monitoring solutions. Clever aggregating and filtering allows you to send only the required information to the tooling.

Network Critical's tools are extremely precise in network performance, allowing the customer to meet external SLAs and gain the most out of their network. Only top-of-the-range products such as the products you see in the Product Comparison Chart (below) will allow for excellent network performance.

Vodafone Networks

'Developing and monitoring Key Performance Indicators is all about accuracy of information. The Network Critical products are providing 100% accurate traffic visibility on the key links, which is vital for us'

- Network Performance Monitoring Engineer

Vodafone needed to connect tools to diverse links at varying speeds through often incompatible physical media. They used the hybrid ethernet SmartNA-XL™ TAP/Packet Broker with copper TAP modules to safely connect to copper links and aggregate the copy of traffic through their system to higher speed optical monitoring tool ports.

  • 1Gbps to 400Gbps in 1RU chassis

  • 100% monitoring accuracy

  • Zero impact on live traffic
