27/09/16

Press Release, Prague (CZ)/Zürich (CH) - SWITCH, the Swiss National Research and Education Network, manages its high-speed network with Flowmon Probe, the world’s first device capable of monitoring 100G networks.

Introduced as the most powerful NetFlow/IPFIX exporter last year, the Flowmon 100G Probe is now being implemented by backbone network operators from across the globe.

„When upgrading to 100G technology we were looking for a new flow-based monitoring technology to enable backbone-level network visibility. The number of vendors providing such a technology is very limited. Flowmon Networks is an experienced vendor of network monitoring solutions and its Probe provides us with superb performance and reliability,” says Daniel Bertolo, Team Leader Global LAN at SWITCH.

As a long-standing pioneer in the development of new technologies, SWITCH works on further enhancing of Internet technology and increasing the security of the Internet in Switzerland. To fulfil this mission, SWITCH has implemented wire-speed Flowmon Probe to perform effective management and troubleshooting of its 100G network infrastructure.

“When designing our products, we always look several years ahead to meet the future demand. This is why we are ready to fulfil the most demanding needs of internet service providers and backbone operators who turn to the 100G network technology,” says Petr Springl, Product Director at Flowmon Networks. “Introduction of the world’s first 100G network probe and its successful implementation in multiple backbone networks have solidified Flowmon’s position of a leader on the network traffic monitoring market.”

Flowmon Probes are high-performance devices that monitor network traffic delivering detailed statistics on network communication. This information is crucial for network and security engineers which must take decisive actions to ensure reliability and fast service delivery. Especially in large-scale environments where the amounts of data are growing exponentially as well as the customer requirements on security and quality of a service.

The project was designed and implemented by the EMITEC company, the Swiss specialist in network testing, monitoring and measurement and partner of Flowmon Networks.
