Net Optics iLink Agg is the industry's highest port density 1G link aggregator designed for monitoring applications, with 24 ports in a 1U form-factor. It enables a pool of up to 8 monitoring appliances to be connected to as many as 8 network links using integrated in-line Taps, or as many as 16 Span ports. The iLink Agg is a key component for building a comprehensive, consolidated monitoring infrastructure in order to manage the performance and security of your network.
Fully Configurable Port Mapping
Net Optics iLink Agg combines selected traffic from up to 16 Span ports and directs traffic to the SFP monitor ports. You can monitor as many as 16 links or switches at one time with up to eight monitoring appliances. For additional flexibility, monitor ports can also be used as additional network ports and Span network ports can be used as additional monitor ports. The iLink Agg supports fully configurable port mapping, enabling aggregation, regeneration, and matrix switching in a single device. Any-to-any and many-to-many port mappings are supported, and any port can be used as an input, an output, or both at the same time.
Easy to Configure, Secure and Manage
You can configure the iLink Agg through a command line interface (CLI), GUI and SNMP v3. TACACS+ and RADIUS perform authentication and authorization. RMON traffic statistics are available through the management interface and the SNMP MIBs.
No Dropped Packets
The iLink Agg scans incoming traffic from the network ports on a first-in-first-out basis. The scan rate is optimized to ensure that no packets are dropped, as long as the sum of data rates on the network ports does not exceed the monitoring port capacity of 1 Gbps.
The Net Optics iLink Agg provides connectivity to network links, Span ports, and monitoring tools with dissimilar media interfaces; simply plug the appropriate SFP transceivers into the iLink Agg. You can populate only those ports you need in order to control capital expenses, or provision extra ports to ensure uptime and port availability.
Intuitive and simple web based user interface enables quick grpahical device configuration, monioring and management.
The iLink Agg has no IP address on the network, so it is immune to viruses or other attacks. The addressable management port is totally isolated from the network data path, and can be connected to a dedicated management subnet for increased security.
