What is Fixed Configuration NPB

Niagara Network’s family of Fixed Configuration Network Packet Brokers are designed to optimize throughput, performance and network port density in a small form factor.

Niagara Networks' Fixed Configuration Network Packet Brocker systems are ideal when the network topology is well-defined, when rack space is at a premium, and when external passive Taps, span ports, and appliances are aggregated at the Packet Broker.

Niagara’s purpose-built Fixed-configuration Network Packet Brokers provide 1, 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit connectivity and enable complete Network Visibility by optimizing traffic flows for Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention, Analytics, and other network tools.
