The Upcoming Era of Packet Brokers

Network Packet Broker Evolution:

The birth of the internet brought along with it a rapid need for innovation as users shift more of their lives online. Demand for bandwidth has exponentially increased as the shift occurs. Moreover, with more and more people working remotely, the demand for network monitoring and management has surged with no signs of slowing. Network Packet Brokers are a relatively new tool that gains access to and analyses traffic on a network. Once analysed, it is sent to the correct tool by the network packet broker.

Rapid evolution has seen network packet broker speeds grow from 1GB to the modern-day standard of 100GB in the blink of an eye. One might wonder how organizations can future-proof themselves if speeds are constantly evolving. Network Critical has thought of this and they now offer nonblocking speeds of 400GB. This giant leap ensures current tools are fully utilised whilst leaving enough room for any future tools required down the line.
