A network packet broker is a solution used to improve network intelligence optimization that drives the overall increased use of analytics, security and WAN acceleration tools. When deployed strategically across the network, this solution allows for much more economical tool investment, effective performance, and an insightful monitoring infrastructure to keep up with rapidly growing network traffic.
To help organizations better understand the virtually unlimited benefits of network packet brokers, VSS Monitoring has just released “Network Packet Brokers for Dummies,” the latest in the popular reference series For Dummies.
The free book targets service providers and enterprise readers, helping to guide organizations on how they can save money and best leverage their network monitoring and security tool investments. Service providers can also learn how the use of network packet brokers ensures a smoother customer experience in addition to understanding how when deploying these offerings, they will see no network downtime and minimize the problems caused by changes being made to an all IP network.
Further, a network packet broker helps enterprises deploy passive or active security tools with ease, extend tool life when migrating to a 10G network, and filter traffic to increase tool efficiency.
“Network packet brokers provide unmatched optimization and ROI of network monitoring and security tools in today’s complex networks for service providers and enterprises alike,” said Rob Markovich (News - Alert), VSS Monitoring SVP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, in a statement.
“As a leader in this rapidly growing space, we are pleased to work with For Dummies and make this valuable resource available for free in the marketplace,” Markovich added. “Readers will understand the benefits of network packet brokers, and can best determine if NPBs are right for their environments.”
