Unified Visibility Plane

When you can see your whole network, the picture changes

Most organizations with networks like yours understand the need for network packet brokers (NPBs). NPBs allow you to make the most of your monitoring and security tools by solving port contention issues, grooming traffic for specific tools, and changing speeds without dropping a single packet. But NPBs from VSS Monitoring give you more — the ability to literally decouple your network traffic from physical ports, server location, tool location, and even time.

Monitor, analyze and defend the dynamic network

As the network becomes increasingly agile, you need a software-defined system that enables the monitoring and security infrastructure to have access to traffic from across the network, globally, without physical reconfiguration.

The VSS Monitoring Unified Visibility Plane is a global network view more advanced than device-focused packet brokering. It offers a visibility architecture that enables tools to be physically anywhere, but logically everywhere, so the network and security tools can monitor, analyze, and defend the network in real time.

Central control for any tool, anytime, anywhere

The VSS Unified Visibility Plane is powered by vMesh, a self-configuring fabric that allows all VSS Monitoring devices to interconnect and communicate. The result is a cost-effective, infinitely flexible architecture that gives you central control over global visibility that spans the LAN and the WAN. The Unified Visibility Plane behaves as a software-defined networking platform, delivering total visibility to your network and application monitoring tools, as well as all of your security devices. If you already own VSS gear, you can get the benefits of the Unified Visibility Plane today, because holistic network visibility – using vMesh – is built into the foundation of every product that we make.
