PRODUCT FEATURES:

4 port 10 Gbps network analysis adapter provides full 40 Gbps analysis with guaranteed data delivery to applications.

Napatech Software Suite provides hardware abstraction that allows up to eight network adapters in an appliance to appear as one, enabling up to 320 Gbps of throughput per appliance.

Real-time data from multiple points in the network can be collected and merged into a single analysis stream, allowing for easier correlation of analysis data.

Precise merging is made possible by nanosecond precision time-stamping of every Ethernet frame, based on flexible support of multiple time synchronization schemes including IEEE1588-2008 Precision Time Protocol (PTP).

State-of-the-art monitoring of air temperature, voltage and power consumption.

Heat exhausts on the front of the adapter, double cooling and a unique housing ensure a consistent temperature in the most demanding environments.

Napatech will debut the new product at both Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from Feb. 24-27 and the RSA Conference in San Francisco, USA from Feb. 24-28.
