Anue Systems’ Advanced Feature Module Achieves NEBS Level 3 Certification

Anue Systems announced the NEBS Level 3 certification of its Advanced Feature Module (AFM) for its 5273 and 5236 Net Tool Optimizer (NTO) products in order to meet the most stringent requirements of the telecommunication industry.

Anue Systems, an industry leader in network monitoring switches, introduced its advanced packet processing features in July 2011 to help network engineers significantly improve monitoring tool performance. With the NEBS certification of the AFM, telecommunication, service providers and large enterprise customers are assured the features will operate under extreme conditions.

The advanced packet processing features were tested and certified by MET Laboratories, a leading NEBS test lab. “NEBS-3 is a very strict test regimen for the most demanding telecom environments,” said Troy Franklin, MET’s Director of Environmental & Energy Laboratory. “For example, the test environment includes failover and partial operational requirements, RF emissions and tolerances and the testing of airflow patterns.”

With the challenge of maintaining the robustness and security of their networks, telecommunication companies are deploying an increasing number of network monitoring tools, including network analyzers and network recorders. Each monitoring tool requires access to the data traversing the network, which is typically achieved by connecting the tools via a TAP or SPAN port. However, many monitoring tools only need specific portions of the data for analysis. Indiscriminately sending the complete data stream to each monitoring tool effectively lowers their performance.

“When it comes to monitoring LTE networks, packet trimming delivers two key benefits,” said Rudy Millian, product manager at Anue Systems. “First, it enables our customers to comply with customer privacy policies by removing sensitive data from network packets before they reach the monitoring tools. Second, by removing non-essential data, packet trimming effectively boosts monitoring tool capacity and efficiency.”

The Anue AFM provides four advanced packet processing features to help telecommunication companies improve network monitoring tool performance.

  • Packet Trimming improves monitoring tool bandwidth by trimming packets before they are delivered to the monitoring tool
  • Packet De-Duplication improves tool bandwidth by eliminating duplicate data packets generated from redundant SPAN ports before those packets reach monitoring tools
  • MPLS Stripping enables non-MPLS capable monitoring tools to monitor data by removing MPLS labels directly from the packet stream and restoring packets to standard IPv4/6 packets
  • Extended Burst Protection ensures complete packet delivery to tools by preventing dropped packets when aggregating multiple network streams into a single 1G stream

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
