Edge Computing is Driving Change in The Network

Devices and applications at the edge are flooding our networks with data — yet users are still unsatisfied.

They want more bandwidth and quicker connections.

The surge of data creates new demands that must be met with upgrades, updates, and changes to your network. Keysight's Vision X network packet broker is designed for growth and flexibility to meet your network requirements now and in the future. Maintain visibility and security at scale with Vision X.

What is a Network Packet Broker?

A network packet broker (NPB) is a device that aggregates data flows from across the network, manipulates the data as configured by the user, and delivers it to security and monitoring tools. It acts as an abstraction layer, extracting data from the network, and as a “broker”, or “dealer”, distributing the relevant data to the relevant tools.

NPBs give visibility and security coverage to businesses assets. With NPBs, your IT team gains an improved understanding of the network and data center to:

  • Improve data center automation
  • Execute better business decisions
  • Quickly troubleshoot network issues
  • Resolve application performance complications
  • Efficiently use network analysis and security tools

Built For Your Next-Generation Network

Maintain visibility as your data center evolves with the Vision X network packet broker. Next-generation technology upgrades are simple without replacing your existing security and monitoring tools.

Vision X enables you to see the data on your network. This gives you the information you need to make better business decisions and keep your network running smoothly today, tomorrow, and in the future.
