E.C.I. NETWORKS PacketMaestro

E.C.I. NETWORKS PacketMaestro Open Packet Broker 

Much like the switches and routers from which they collect traffic, network packet brokers have traditionally been locked-in systems. However, the networking industry is evolving, and the network packet broker industry is, too. The new Disaggregated Open Packet Brokers are intended to accelerate the deployment of management, monitoring, and security tools, eliminate blind spots in conventional architectures, and provide high-scale, multi-speed support, a comprehensive feature set, and a competitive total cost of ownership (TCO).

E.C.I. NETWORKS offers disaggregated and open network packet broker NOS that runs on off-the-shelf, open network hardware, offering you flexibility and affordability.
