Napatech NT20E Network Adapter Offers Full 10G-BPS Throughput
Napatech is demonstrating its NT20E In-Line Adapter that officials say gives users full 10G-bps in-line analysis and transmission of network traffic throughput with no packet loss, an important capability for enterprise networks that are under pressure to offer 10G-bps throughput due to increased user demand for such applications as video, voice and Web 2.0 workloads. Napatech officials demonstrating the NT20E at Interop said there are other network adapters offering 10G-bps ports, but they work most effectively with traffic that comes in at less than 5G bps.Napatech is unveiling an in-line network adapter that it says will let users better monitor and analyze the increasingly important 10G-bps traffic running over the network. Napatech is demonstrating the NT20E In-Line Adapter at the Interop show in Las Vegas, which is running May 17 to 21.
According to officials with Napatech, the NT20E, a PCI Express network adapter, provides genuine 10G-bps in-line analysis and transmission of network traffic with no packet loss. Napatech already offers products that enable full line-rate capture and real-time analysis at 10G bps, said Napatech President Erik Norup.
