Network packet filtering enables you to delay or even eliminate additional monitoring tool investments while delivering 100 percent visibility into your network. Increasing efficiency in both staff time and tool usage saves you money on software purchases and operational IT costs.
Fast & accurate data for your tools
APCON's unique network packet filtering provides pinpoint accuracy in delivering data to your network monitoring and network security tools. Our customizable filter stacks allow you to specify with precision which network packets are delivered to each egress port on the aggregation switch. This technology means that oversubscribed ports and dropped packets are a thing of the past. Network packet filtering technology is native to IntellaView blades and IntellaFlex XR chassis and blades at no extra charge.
In contrast to competing network packet brokers that enforce a primitive, text-based approach, APCON's Network Packet Filtering is implemented through our convenient, sixth-generation IntellaView management interface. This graphical interface now includes dynamic updating of filter rules and allows you to quickly and easily create filter stacks using your existing filter library and visualize the processing and distribution of data to your network performance monitoring and network security tools.

Packet filtering hardware
Packet filtering makes your network performance monitoring system more efficient and extends the working life of legacy 1G and 10G monitoring tools. It allows you to manage higher-speed network traffic at rates such as 40G / 100G where your legacy tools may have limitations.
Ultra-high performance network visibility
Network Packet Filters can reduce 40G and 100G packet streams or aggregations of multiple inputs as they enter the network packet broker, separating different types of packets for distribution to a selection of egress ports. With this technology, each tool receives every relevant packet. This extends the life of legacy 1G and 10G network performance monitoring tools and security tools to monitor high-speed 40G or 100G links.
1G / 10G / 40G legacy platform
The APCON IntellaFlex XR series blades provide the aggregation and filtering technology necessary to monitor high-speed networks. With the broadest range of advanced features, network engineers can be confident the right traffic is delivered to the right applications 100% of the time.
