Vision E40 is versatile because it can be used as a standalone unit or as a software defined visibility solution in a software defined network (SDN) within a security architecture. With Ixia Fabric Controller (IFC), multiple Vision E40 and/or other Vision network packet brokers can be managed through a single pane of glass in the topology you need to optimize your tool deployment. With IFC, you get unified management of distributed architectures, role-based access and controls, and oversight of all ports from all Vision network packet brokers at once, allowing you to configure an efficient, scalable visibility solution.
As part of your overall security architecture, Vision E40 also provides the ability to leverage Ixia’s turnkey Vision ONE and massively scalable Vision 7300, when your deployment is ready. With these network packet brokers and the visibility intelligence capabilities of PacketStack, SecureStack and AppStack, you can manipulate and mold traffic so your tools always get the right data. With Vision ONE, you can also monitor virtual traffic with Ixia’s CloudLens platform for public, private and hybrid cloud visibility.
