Products Overview - Protector Series - Protector 2020 |
The 10G/1G Protector 2020 is VSS's low-density 10G network packet broker for inline & passive monitoring applications. Four (x4) active bypass 10G/1G fixed media ports access & redirect traffic from up to two (x2) inline network links to multiple inline & passive monitoring and security tools.
Inline tools and networks have extra security protection with VSS's PowerSafe technology. PowerSafe provides loss of power protection with user selectable port settings for auto-fail-open or fail-closed. The twenty (x20) 10G/1G SFP+ ports connect to inline & passive monitoring and security tools, and can be used for additional traffic capture.
Users have complete control over how Protector, operating fully at layers 1 and 2, refines and delivers traffic to their selected inline & passive monitoring tools with VSS' Base, Packet Optimization, Specific Application, and Protector feature sets.
Secure: Local and remote manageability with user-specific access restrictions, AAA user authentication, and traffic ports without an IP address on the network combine to safeguard your security and performance monitoring tools and access to the Protector units.
Flexible: Dynamic port type (input, output, or stack) and setting configurability, with pluggable ports, provide adaptable solutions to meet your specific deployment needs. Bypass and I/O ports support both active and passive network monitoring.
High Performance: Full line rate throughput, all layer 1 and 2 functionality, and low latency throughput to monitor output guarantee full visibility at line speed. Positive health check packets test the health and state of the monitoring appliance while Negative health check packets verify software state of the active tool.
Reliable: Redundant power supplies, user defined trigger policies, and policy-based load balancing provide active options for defining monitoring tool failure scenarios, in addition to traffic re-distribution to active and standby tools.
Scalable: Up to 63 Protector and other DTCS devices can be stacked to form a network intelligence optimization layer on one unified platform.
