Net Tool Optimizers

Out-of-band traffic aggregation, filtering, deduplication and load balancing

Ixia's Net Tool Optimizer® (NTO) portfolio of network visibility solutions will revolutionize the way you monitor your network. The Ixia portfolio of NTO network monitoring switches, also known as network packet brokers, provides complete visibility into physical and virtual networks, improves network security and optimizes monitoring tool performance.

The Ixia NTO solutions provide complete visibility by intelligently connecting your data center or service provider network with monitoring tools to aggregate, filter, load balance and de-duplicate network traffic. Unlike other network packet brokers, the Ixia NTO network visibility products' patented filtering and de-duplication technology ensures each monitoring tool gets exactly the right data needed for analysis and it's powered by the easiest to use, drag-and-drop management interface in the industry. This improves the way you manage delivery of application services to your end users, saves valuable IT time and maximizes return on investment.
