Next-Gen Packet Capture Cards Infiltrate Enterprise Networks

Endace’s DAG 9.5G4 and 9.5G4F next generation four-port packet capture cards operate in 10/100/1000Base-T environments. The new quad port DAG 9.5G4 and 9.5G4F models are successors to the company’s DAG 7.5G4 model, adding features at less than half the cost of the previous generation DAG 7.5G4.

 

DAG Cards natively support a wide range of open-source applications including Wireshark, Bro, SNORT, Suricata, and any libpcap application through DAG-enabled libraries. According to Endace, system integrators realize substantial boosts to application performance along with low software integration and maintenance costs over the life of their project.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

 

The DAG 9.5G4F introduces a unique built-in failover mode for tapping network links or deploying inline applications. Failover enables direct network access without expensive external copper taps or bypass switches. The Failover feature allows the card to be used for in-line applications as well as for passive monitoring, making it ideal for OEMs building in-line solutions.

 

Both the 9.5G4 and 9.5G4F feature standard DAG Card functionality such as interrupt free, zero copy, packet capture direct-to-memory and onboard, hardware-based, filtering, duplication and steering. They also provide on-board processing for a host of enterprise and encapsulation protocols, such as MPLS and VLAN for load balancing, classification and filtering. For more details, peruse the DAG datasheet.
