Democratize Observability with Software Defined
Packet Brokers


Network packets are the best source of truth for network and security operations, but packets are difficult to capture and analyze. To get a full picture of the network, you need to mirror traffic to multiple network segments and you need to analyze massive volumes of data. Network packet brokers (NPBs) can solve both these problems by aggregating, optimizing and load balancing mirrored traffic. Unfortunately, traditional NPB appliances are expensive.  

A disaggregated NPB solution democratizes network data by allowing you to analyze all the packets you need without busting your budget. Furthermore, approaches based on SDN-automated fabric architectures can enable significant scale inside a single data center or across multiple geographically distributed data centers while maintaining simplified operations. By deploying innovative NPB software on commodity switching hardware, you can affordably collect traffic from more network segments while filtering and load balancing that traffic across your network monitoring and security tools. 

Join Shamus McGillicuddy, VP of Research at leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates, and Alessandro Barbieri, VP Product Management at Pluribus Networks, for a webinar that explores how software defined packet brokers can close the visibility gap on your network.  

You will learn:

  • Trends in Network Packet Brokers
  • Pros and cons of traditional NPBs
  • The advantages of using disaggregated SDPBs
  • Best practices for maximizing the value of SDPBs
