Leading the Way in Network Technology

Capture 100% Full Duplex Traffic with RegenTAPs

With the rise in the number of monitoring tools enterprises are using to analyze their network traffic, a new problem has arisen; how will you get network traffic to multiple out-of-band monitoring tools? Garland Technology recognized the need for a Network TAP that would allow traffic from a single network link to be sent to multiple monitoring appliances to analyze the network.

Securing the Edge in Cisco ACI with Garland Technology's EdgeLens

I’ve previously provided an introduction to Cisco ACI in terms of facilitating a next-generation data center by taking advanced of software defined networking. So if you haven’t read that post, it’s a great place to start. Abstraction is Key:  End Point Groups, Contracts and Service Graphs Abstraction is a key concept in administration, scaling, and deployment automation within Cisco ACI.  This is accomplished by defining endpoints and policies that determine how data flows through the ACI fabric.

Unleash the Power of Packet Slicing and Time Stamping in your Network

In today’s environments with significant investment in security and monitoring tools, Garland Technology recognizes the need for a cost-effective solution that provides the flexibility and performance that networks today require. We have chosen to take the approach to deconstruct our packet broker solutions. Through the use of separate and dedicated hardware appliances to perform specific tasks, there is no degradation of overall performance while performing CPU intensive tasks or additional licence fees. This ensures that our customers have solutions that are flexible and scalable for future on-demand growth, while ensuring excellent ROI today. To build on our current PacketMAX™ packet broker solutions, consisting of our Advanced Aggregators, and Advanced Features Dedup, Garland is excited to announce the launch of our new PacketMAX™: Advanced Features appliance, that adds time stamping and packet slicing capabilities to your network.

The Battle Of The Bandwidth

After an epic 15 year reign at number one, 10G tools begin their descent down the charts of network infrastructure, making way for the rise of “hot” 100G technology.  Iconic sensations like big data infrastructure and the explosion of bandwidth-intensive applications in large enterprises dropped the bass for 10G networking tools. Cisco, a preferred partner of Garland technology, released the Bidirectional 40G Fiber Connectivity, a real crowd-pleaser to help bandwidth accessibility.

The Role of Bypass Solutions in a Network Visibility Fabric

Designing complete network visibility solutions takes more than just Network TAPs and Network Packet Brokers at key points in the access and aggregation layers of the network. With network security being more important than ever before, today’s network visibility fabrics also must supply traffic to inline security tools such as a next-gen firewall, WAF, or IPS to protect critical parts of the network.

How to Make 40G Fiber More Accessible—A Primer on Cisco BiDi Technology

Just as large enterprises settle into 10G networking, bandwidth intensive applications and big data demands are forcing companies to adopt 40G network speeds. However, the shift from 10G to 40G requires a major investment in a new cabling infrastructure, leaving architects in a difficult position when trying to make upgrades. To make 40G more accessible, Cisco, a Garland Technology partner, created bidirectional (BiDi) 40G fiber connectivity. But the technology is not without its challenges.
