ALAXALA Networks Selectes InMon Corp's sFlow Traffic Analysis Solutions
San Francisco, California — Apr. 16, 2007 — InMon Corporation, the leading supplier of traffic monitoring solutions for high-speed switched networks, announced that its sFlow® network traffic analysis software has been selected by ALAXALA Networks to provide detailed flow monitoring for its family of sFlow enabled switches and routers. ALAXALA Networks is a joint venture of the switching and routing divisions of Hitachi Ltd. and NEC Corporation, and is a leading provider of routers/switches for telecom carriers, government, public sectors, and corporate networks.
"The combination of ALAXALA’s embedded sFlow capability and InMon's traffic monitoring solutions gives customers complete visibility of network traffic which is essential for deploying mission critical, multi-service IP networks," said Hiroyuki Wada, President of ALAXALA Networks Corp. "We have verified that sFlow, as implemented in the AX2400S, AX3600S, AX5400S, AX6300S, AX6700S, AX7700R and AX7800R/S, interoperates with InMon’s Traffic Sentinel and sFlowTrend-Pro software. This solution is especially important in the transition to IPv6, where sFlow is the first monitoring technology that is proven to work in mixed IPv4 and IPv6 networks."
"The support of sFlow in ALAXALA’s switches and routers, together with InMon’s sFlow analysis software will ensure the integrity and reliability of today’s high-speed switched networks providing integrated network services," commented Peter Phaal, President of InMon Corp.
InMon Traffic Sentinel is an enterprise class solution that fully exploits the sFlow standard for monitoring layer 2-7 switches/routers and gives complete end-to-end network visibility. Traffic Sentinel provides real-time and historical reports of all traffic flows in the network. This enables rapid identification of causes of congestion, effective allocation of network resources to ensure that SLAs are met for all classes of traffic, protection against security threats, accurate accounting for usage, and optimization of peering relationships.
InMon sFlowTrend-Pro is a new application tailored to the needs of small and medium sized networks. It continuously monitors all switches and routers in the network using sFlow. It summarizes network health, highlighting issues and anomalous behavior, and providing automatic root cause analysis and intuitive drill down for rapid identification of the source of any problem.
