Advanced Visibility from 10G to 400G – for Today and Tomorrow

IoT network and system testing

Increasingly large, fast and complex hybrid software defined networks can overwhelm security and monitoring tools and create blind spots. Keysight’s two new 400 Series Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) superscale tools by intelligently providing them all the data they need, even at 400G speeds.

Vision 400 for full featured visibility

Supports all visibility intelligence features to optimize your tools performance including PacketStack, AppStack, Decryption, and MobileStack (coming soon).

Vision Edge 400S for advanced edge aggregation

With traffic grooming features not available on standard top of rack aggregation NPBs.

Series Highlights

  • Scalable visibility for today and tomorrow in 10/25/40/50/100/200/400G speeds
  • High density flexibility up to 152x10G/25G/50G, 32x40G, 64x100G, 32x200G, 16x400G (including fan outs)
  • Resilient, active-active inline and out-of-band capabilities
  • Built-in line-rate filtering and lossless processing capabilities
  • Packet transformation features on every port: header stripping, timestamping, tunneled IP filtering, data masking and tunnel creation/termination
  • Accurate timestamping with sources from: NTP, 1588 PTP, or 1PPS+ToD (G.8271) with two independent 1PPS
  • Supports both NRZ and PAM4 standards for maximum port density and flexibility
  • Easy-to-use web interface with point-and-click functionality

Vision Edge 400S – Next Generation Edge Aggregator

Vision Edge 400S

Unlike standard edge aggregation products, the Vision Edge 400S can perform many features that normally are only found on full featured network packet brokers such as: header stripping, timestamping, tunneled IP filtering, data masking and tunnel creation/termination.

These PacketStack Plus features are available on every port at full line rate to help your visibility scale as your network grows.

The Vision Edge 400S can be used for top-of-the rack visibility for a single rack or scaled to thousands of racks into a visibility solution with the Vision 400 solution.

Vision 400 – Future Proof Visibility

Ensure full visibility as your network’s size and speed increase to 25G, 40G, 50G, 100G, 200G or 400G. And save money by supercharging your existing security and monitoring tools to keep up with increased traffic volumes.

The Vision 400’s visibility intelligence modules can reduce traffic volumes with de-duplication, packet trimming, layer 7 filtering and netflow generation. And blind spots can be eliminated with SSL decryption and tunnel header stripping. All at full line rate without drops.

Functionality and speeds can be licensed as needed as your tools and networks evolve.

Networks are gaining speed and complexity to support hybrid IT networks, multi-cloud business deployments for applications such as 5G, remote work, artificial intelligence (AI), video streaming and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR).

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) explored this trend in a new report, discovering that 96% of organizations find packet analysis critical to cybersecurity operations, which amplifies the need for network visibility solutions like the new Vision 400 series.

Leverage Existing 10G/25G Tools to Improve ROI

Read the eBook to learn how NPBs drive ROI.

It is vital to include an NPB like the 400 series in your visibility architecture. One major benefit an NPB brings is an increase in return on investment (ROI) of your network infrastructure.
