It is a challenge to monitor today's converging networks with high-speed links. It means capturing of gigabytes of traffic and then analyzing and storing terabytes of data each day. This task requires carefully designed data capture hardware to avoid PC saturation and monitoring application failure. Any work around solutions that rely on slowing down the traffic don't work -- dropped packets, missed information -- and they fail to monitor the fastest, most utilized network links.   

NetHawk iPro works in common Ethernet based networks such as enterprise and campus LAN's, metro and core networks and in different Radio Access Networks such as 2G/3G, IP-RAN, WiMAX, LTE, and more. NetHawk iPro simply captures all data that users are interested about. Network operators and managers can use the product for several different scenarios.

It is available with multiple 1Gb and 10Gb interfaces and iPro's capabilities are setting a new standard with up to 10 Gbps packet processing and 11.5 Gbps write to disk speed. The iPro network appliance is suited for clients requiring to process, capture and record large amounts of data for specialized applications, like network security, latency measurements, network analysis, network forensics and troubleshooting.

"NetHawk is the trusted partner of network operators with large, multifaceted infrastructures, requiring extremely high operational availability," explained Timo Ainali, executive vice president, NetHawk IP Products, in a release. "Backed by NetHawk's superior customer service, iPro delivers a complete solution for enterprise customers that need to run specialized applications on complex networks with the highest performance available."
