Virtual Advanced Network Packet Brokers

Network visibility across Distributed Virtual Environments

CGS addresses the visibility challenges of virtual networks by offering a pure software and complete visibility solution for virtual environments. CGS Tower Networks Virtual Advanced Network Packet Broker (vANPB) is a fully functional ANPB, deployed on VM or a container.

The growing deployments of virtual environments along with the shifts of monitoring and security tools from dedicated custom build machines to the virtual world, limit the capabilities of existing physical network visibility solutions. On top of that, the challenge of overloaded tools grows as well, all resulting in overwhelming amounts of data that floods analysis and security tools, hindering their performance and increasing security risks.

The desirable solution, presented by CGS Tower Networks vANPB, is a unified and optimized mechanism that resides in the virtual environment, eliminates blind spots and bottlenecks to provide full visibility into the cloud, while reducing the cost and complexity of network components.

Virtual Advanced Network Packet Broker Connectivity Example

Virtual schem

The vANPB maintains full visibility of the virtual environment by performing layer 2-7 filtering, header stripping, load balancing (between containers and multiple instances in the same container), data delivery sampling and much more.

CGS Virtual ANPB Unique Advantages

Complete deployment of network visibility on virtual environments ranging from vTAPs to the most advanced features of CPU based NPB

Supported virtual environments: ESXI, OpenStack, Docker Container, Kubernetes

Processed traffic can be forwarded to both physical and virtual machines

CGS Tower Networks virtual visibility solutions can be managed separately or by CGS Device Manager

vANPB orchestration support which enables on-demand cluster scaling based on configurable triggers such as bandwidth requirements
