The Niagara 2845 family of Flexible Configuration Network Packet Brokers provides all the features and benefits of Niagara’s flagship Modular Network Packet Brokers in a high-density 1U form factor. Designed for installation where space is at a premium, the 2845 can be factory configured to include any of I/O modules supported by its larger siblings. By selecting your choice of Network Packet Broker, Bypass or TAP modules you create a customized solution that meets your specific Network Visibility needs. This unrivaled flexibility allows network designers to configure packet brokers that meet their specific connectivity needs without wasting space or money.

Niagara packet processing technology includes dedicated hardware support for Layer 2 through Layer 4 filtering, load balancing and acceleration for network tunneling protocols. Our non-blocking architecture, extremely low latency, packet manipulation capability and highly granular statistics create the baseline for dynamic visibility and end-to-end transparency in your network.  

The Niagara 2845 includes redundant hot-swappable power supplies, hot-swap fans and dedicated management interfaces. All of our Network Packet Broker systems have been rigorously tested to meet the requirements of Service Providers and Enterprise Data Centers.

The Niagara 2845 Network Packet Broker supports NOSE, Niagara’s advanced Network Visibility Operating System. NOSE provides powerful Layer 2-4 packet filtering functionality and load balancing for connected network tools. This combination of customized, configuration-specific hardware, and powerful, intuitive software provides the perfect Network Visibility platform to support
