sponsored by Ixia

While SPAN ports are critical for connecting monitoring tools to the network, they often create duplicate copies of each and every packet going in and out of the switch, which is detrimental as it:

  • Diminishes monitoring port bandwidth
  • Reduces packet capture storage capability
  • Decreases processing power of analyzer tools, and
  • Interferes with network analysis and troubleshooting.

Inside, uncover the best solution for solving the duplicate packet dilemma: A network monitoring switch.

Learn more about these issues SPAN ports cause and uncover why the network monitoring switch is critical for not only packet deduplication by also load balancing, centralized control of traffic, data filtering, and more.
