Ixia's Anue Net Tool Optimizer™ (NTO) 5204 network monitoring switch provides a cost-effective entry-level solution for copper networks that predominantly require 1Gbps visibility for network monitoring tools. An ideal solution in the lower speed portions of the network such as the access layers, or where a large number of 1Gbps monitoring tools need access to network traffic, the 5204 aggregates, replicates, and filters network traffic using the industry's most advanced, easy to use, drag-and-drop Control Panel.
The Ixia Anue NTO 5204 includes two module slots on the rear of the unit where up to four 10 Gb ports can be added that are available as expansion modules. Expansion modules are available to support CX4, XFP, and SFP+ interfaces.
The Ixia Anue NTO 5204 network monitoring switch uses an intuitive CLI-Free Control Panel that allows complete configuration of the system. Software updates and licensing can be performed quickly and efficiently through the same industry leading GUI.
