Comguard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT products and part of the Spectrum group, announced that it has partnered with Ixia to offer network visibility solutions that will revolutionise the way Middle Eastern enterprises and service providers monitor their networks.
Comguard will offer Ixia’s portfolio of network visibility solutions including the Anue Net Tool Optimizer® (NTO) and GTP Session Controller (GSC) to their customers in the region. The NTO portfolio of network monitoring switches, also known as network packet brokers, provides complete visibility into physical and virtual networks, improves network security monitoring and optimizes monitoring tool performance. The GSC enables mobile carriers to gain better insight and control over individual user sessions in order to increase customers’ quality of experience.
The Ixia Anue NTO solutions provide complete visibility by intelligently connecting your data center or service provider network with performance monitoring tools to aggregate, filter, load balance and de-duplicate network traffic. Unlike other network packet brokers, the NTO’s patented filtering and de-duplication technology ensures each monitoring tool gets exactly the right data needed for analysis. Powered by an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop management interface, Ixia’s NTO improves the way organizations manage the delivery of application services to end users, saves valuable IT time and maximizes return on investment.
The Ixia Anue GSC helps mobile carriers optimize the performance of their network monitoring solutions. With the current rates of data growth and the ever-increasing mobility of users, mobile carriers require increased visibility into their networks as well as a way to view and piece together data coming from multiple towers. The GSC provides mobile network optimization with unprecedented scalability and network visibility into 4G LTE networks providing GTP-session awareness, scalable load balancing and carrier-grade robustness.
Jayadevan K., Senior Vice President-Value Business, Comguard, said, “This partnership with Ixia will enable us to further expand our market base with innovations for equipment manufacturers, service providers, enterprises, and government agencies. These solutions provide leading network visibility platforms that offer clarity into physical and virtual production networks for improved performance, security, resiliency, and application delivery of cloud, data center, and service provider networks.”
“Increased visibility into the network has become critical for IT organizations. Corporate IT teams need comprehensive and flexible access to network data if they are to effectively monitor, manage and maximize their network resources,” said Paul O’Reilly, Director of Sales for Ixia’s Network Visibility Solutions. “Ixia is dedicated to working with the best channel partners to deliver and support our network visibility solutions in local markets in The Middle East.
