COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech, the world's leading supplier of network analysis adapters, today released the latest whitepaper in its "Time to ReThink" series of insights with regards to crucial issues facing network equipment manufacturers (NEMs). In "Time to ReThink Appliance Portfolio Development," Napatech focuses on how NEMs can streamline portfolio development by incorporating a universal appliance that minimizes the number of components and vendors, while maximizing deployment options.
- A universal appliance has the capability to implement any appliance or probe with the installation of the appropriate analysis software. As such, these appliances also allow deployment of multiple analysis applications on the same server, each sharing the same data.
- The key components of a universal appliance include:
- Commercial off-the-shelf server
- Network analysis adapter
- Hardware abstraction layer
- Appropriate analysis software
- Napatech adapters provide the essential features for real-time analysis:
- 100 percent packet capture
- Nanosecond time-stamping precision
- Application off-load
- Flow identification
- Intelligent distribution of network traffic
Erik Norup, president and CMO, Napatech, said:
"The explosive growth in data traffic is increasing the size, scope and complexity of portfolio development, challenging NEMs to deliver value, on budget, with quick time to market. With a universal appliance, it is possible to streamline the development of several products into one release, simplifying the support of key technologies while saving time and money."
