Monitoring and analyzing 200G of communication brings certain challenges. A common approach is to combine 100G upstream and downstream links via devices such as smart taps, but this typically requires a comprehensive system of numerous 10G lines connected to a range of appliances. This escalates both complexity and cost.

In partnership with Fujitsu, Napatech have innovated a solution able to analyze network and application quality in real-time while monitoring communication packets at 200G.

It can instantly detect any deterioration of network quality and accurately identify a problem area. By analyzing the communication behaviour without dropping a single packet, it is possible to determine whether a degradation in service quality, such as a response delay, is caused by the network or an issue in the application

Optimised memory performance, reduced CPU load and full-line rate packet capture are benefits of this solution.
