The “latest and greatest” in network management seems to be SDN. Yet, many network engineers are still unfamiliar with what software-defined networking really is and how it drastically changes their network design. For many, the exploration of SDN is the result of looking for ways to cut down on budgetary expenses and streamline management. Whether you fall into this category or not, SDN is an approach to computer networking that you must consider. Learn how to reap the benefits of an SDN solution while implementing a visibility plane in parallel.
There are a number of products or solutions that benefit from leveraging a TAP, and it’s not uncommon that a TAP is the final missing piece that connects a product to a network. A TAP guarantees that your network tools receive a complete copy of all live network traffic. Below are the seven products that most commonly leverage network TAPs. Whether you’re building your own network or connecting other network tools, network TAPs enable you to link such tools while maximizing your network’s security and efficiency. Discover an easy and affordable way to get all of the data and information you need without the dangers of over-subscribing or downtime inefficiencies.
