APCON Promotes Availability, Scalability of its Network Monitoring, Traffic Analysis Tools

By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, TMC

APCON (News - Alert) Inc. was at Cisco Live earlier this week talking about how customers can use its highly available and scalable network monitoring and traffic analysis tools in their data centers to reduce costs.

Mark Holmes, APCON’s domestic sales director, tells TMCnet that the tools are targeted at Fortune 500-1000 customers. The fact that the company delivers the hardware and software – and does in-house manufacturing of the solution down to the circuit board level – means APCON customers get better quality solutions and faster innovation, Holmes adds.  

The company has a broad portfolio of products. That consists of packet aggregation solutions known as the IntellaFlex and IntellaFlex-LE; data capture solutions marketed under the name IntellaStore; managed tapping solutions called IntellaTap; a time stamping solution called the IntellaFlex; switching solutions known as the IntellaPatch series; and a video routing product called IntellaPort. The company also offers management software, including TITAN EnterPoint, which provides a single, centralized solution through which to monitor enterprise networks.

This year, APCON introduced new products in the areas of on-board storage and analysis, 10G and 40G Ethernet blades, and specialized blades with features such as time stamping. Holmes says that APCON offers the best scalability for 10G in the most compact footprint. And he adds that although its switching product is available in four different chassis versions, the line cards, power supplies and other released gear can work with any of the four platforms.

In introducing the 10G solution last month, Richard Rauch, president and CEO of APCON, commented "Driven by an explosion of mobile, video and data content, the need for high-density 10G network monitoring switches has become essential. We're delighted to offer the industry's highest density of 144 10G ports in a single 4-rack unit chassis.”
