Take a software-defined approach to packet broker solutions.
Using Cisco Nexus Data Broker, you can replace traditional, purpose-built matrix switches with Cisco Nexus switches. Interconnect the switches to build scalable network taps and SPAN aggregation infrastructures. You can also distribute the tap and SPAN sources across multiple switches.
You can distribute traffic monitoring and analysis tools, either physical appliance- or virtual machine (VM)-based, across multiple switches as well.
Data Broker also offers advanced functions such as dot1q encapsulation support for source port tagging, symmetric load balancing, packet timestamping and packet truncation.
Nexus Data Broker with Cisco ACI works better than traditional aggregation solutions.
