SmartNA-X HD™

1G/10G Network Packet Broker

Overview

Network Critical’s SmartNA-X HD™ Packet Broker provides flexible, high density, high speed visibility to tools that monitor network traffic and secure confidential information vital to the success of the organization.

 

The innovative design provides up to 48 ports that are auto-configurable for speeds from 1Gbps to 10Gbps. The ports are designed to accept SFP and SFP+ transceivers enabling connection to copper links as well as single mode and multi-mode fiber media. Externally tapped network packets can be sent to the SmartNA-X HD™ for additional processing including aggregation, filtering and load balancing, and can then be forwarded to connected network monitoring and security tools, for further analysis, archiving, or reporting

AGGREGATION

Aggregate SPAN/TAP traffic feeds across multiple network links, filtering, optimizing and feeding the combined traffic to connected security and monitoring tools for further analysis

FILTERING

Identify traffic based on signature or patterns across any part of the packet - or corresponding to application sessions - and forward to security appliances, increasing their efficacy and performance.

LOAD-BALANCING

Distribute traffic among multiple ports based on a variety of options: hashing, bandwidth, cumulative traffic, packet rate, connections, and more.
