JDSU launches GigaStor Portable 10 Gb Wire Speed RNA appliance

Network Instruments, a JDSU Performance Management Solution, has launched its new GigaStor Portable 10 Gb Wire Speed retrospective network analysis (RNA) appliance.

The new portable configuration utilizes solid state drive (SSD) technology to stream traffic to disk at full line rate on full-duplex 10 Gb links without dropping packets, said JDSU.

The main benefits of new GigaStor Portable to enterprises and service providers are faster links to resolve issues by having all the packets available for immediate analysis. Telecom engineers can save time and money by minimizing repeat offsite visits and remotely accessing the appliance.

“For network engineers, remotely troubleshooting high-speed networks used to mean leaving powerful RNA tools behind, and relying on a software sniffer and laptop to capture and diagnose problems,” said Charles Thompson, chief technology officer for Network Instruments.

Without GigaStor Portable’s insight, engineers may spend hours replicating a network error before they can diagnose its cause. Engineers can deploy GigaStor Portable to any remote location to collect and save weeks of packet-level data to decode, analyze, and display. JDSU said the appliance sifts through data, isolates incidents, and provides extensive expert analysis to resolve issues.

JDSU said the GigaStor Portable 10 Gb Wire Speed with SSD provides 6 TB of raw storage capacity, and includes the cabling and nTAP needed to install the appliance on any 10 Gb network and start recording traffic.
