Fluke Networks announces first auto multi-segment analysis capability for both portable and rack mount 40 Gbps stream-to-disk solutions – speeds troubleshooting by factor of five

Fn-ntmPortable1a_02a_hAugust 17, 2012Fluke Networks has announced a new version of Network Time Machine™ (NTM), the first packet analysis appliance that provides automated multi-segment analysis (Auto MSA) capability for both portable and rack mount solutions for up to 40 Gbps network traffic.

Network professionals now have the flexibility to use both rack mount and portable versions, or even the Fluke Networks OptiView® XG Network Analysis Tablet, to gather packet information across multiple tiers within the data centre or a distributed network. This delivers a complete view of the transaction process and isolates points of failure nearly five times faster than competing solutions.1

By 2015, server unit growth with 40 Gbps Ethernet interface is expected to grow by more than 40 per cent, which represents new challenges isolating packet delays and losses across different network segments.2

Wayne Allen, program manager, Fluke Networks, said, “The investments customers are making in 40 Gbps pipelines are tremendous, and they need to ensure they’re maximising the investment.

“The newest version of Network Time Machine demonstrates Fluke Networks’ continued commitment to keeping pace with the technologies its customers are using and helping them drive value and performance from their infrastructure.”

The new version of Network Time Machine can capture 20 Gbps stream-to-disk (Tolly Group Certified3). The portable version can capture 10 Gbps stream-to-disk, and will be available in September. For more information, please visit Fluke Networks.
