Interface Masters Announces Industry-First High Port Density 40G PacketMaster For Network Monitoring

Niagara 4330-8X Provides a 30 Port 40-Gigabit and 8 Port 10-Gigabit Fabric for Packet Filtering, Packet Mirroring, Session Based Traffic Distribution, Load Balancing, and Traffic Aggregation

San Jose, CA, May 27th, 2013 – Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader and innovator in networking solutions, announced a new product to the PacketMasters line that supports high port density 40Gb interfaces enabling sophisticated PacketMaster and Hardware-based Load Balancing functionality. The Niagara 4330-8X system, which currently holds the highest 40G port density in the Network Monitoring Switch market today, is built with 30 ports of 40-Gigabit Fiber (QSFP) and 8 ports of 10-Gigabit Fiber (SFP+, SFP) and complements the PacketMaster family, enabling filtering, mirroring, sophisticated session-based traffic distribution and aggregation. The combination of 40Gb and 10Gb ports enables datacenters, telcos and MSOs smoother transition to 40Gb networks while preserving existing 10Gb or 1Gb monitoring tools such as IPS, IDS, Wan Acceleration Systems, DPI systems and Data Loss Prevention among others. Niagara 4330-8X possesses a full-featured software suite that can be managed remotely and a sophisticated WEB GUI to enable easy and full control, intuitive “point and click” and “drag and drop” port and filter configuration and statistics retrieval.

“As networks continue expanding to 40Gb speeds, Interface Masters continues to release innovative PacketMaster products such as Niagara 4330-8X to ensure that 10 Gigabit and 1 Gigabit legacy monitoring tools are able to monitor 40G network streams in order to preserve existing monitoring infrastructure in a cost effective manner,” states Ben Askarinam, founder and CEO of Interface Masters. “With the highest 40Gb port density in the network monitoring switch market, the 40Gb PacketMaster, Niagara 4330-8X, will enable enterprises and datacenters to make the leap to 40G network speeds cost effectively, responsibly and securely.”

Niagara 4330-8X provides 1.2 Tbs real traffic processing supporting essential features:

  • 30 x 40Gb QSFP ports and 8 x 10Gb/1Gb SFP+ ports
  • Mirroring (One to many and many to many)
  • Session Based Loadbalancing/Distribution (One to Many)
  • Aggregation (Many to One)
  • Extensive Layer 2-4 Filtering – 2000+ filtering and redirection rules
  • Packet Slicing
  • IPv6 support
  • MPLS, Q in Q support
  • Port Failover Mechanism
  • Advanced Management – Syslog, TACACS+, RMON, secure WEB, CLI, SSH, counters
  • Web GUI – intuitive “drag and drop” & “point & click” configuration of input ports, output ports and filters
