Gain extensive visibility for high-density data center switches with speeds up to 100/400G and analytics for increasing traffic volumes and highly complex multipath networks.
Scale out network monitoring independent of the number of ports, switches, or taps.
Reduce network monitoring expenses with simple, cost-effective standard Cisco Nexus switches.
“The greatest benefit for us was that we no longer had to think where are we going to cable those taps and everything. This was because the number of ports was no longer a limitation, and the number of switches was no longer a limitation. We could scale out with everything.”Thomas Muehlemann, Network Monitoring and Assurance, Swisscom
“The key benefits of Cisco Nexus Data Broker are both technical and financial. I can achieve the packet monitoring and analysis needs at a pretty inexpensive cost-per-port as opposed to needing to budget for expensive enterprise purpose-built matrix devices.”Nick Wade, Network Engineer, Salt River Project
