Enabling Network Monitoring at 40Gbps and 100Gbps with Flow Mapping® Technology Historically network monitoring and analysis has been an afterthought in the design of networks and networking equipment. In today’s data economy, this is a growing issue as organizations race to ever-faster network speeds, security threats are on the rise, and regulatory compliance requirements have become more complex and stringent. As a result, monitoring next generation networks is a topic that has become central to protecting the enterprise.

Network speeds have begun the transition from 1Gbps to 10Gbps, and are quickly moving toward 40Gbps and 100Gbps. Accurate monitoring of these higher traffic, higher speed networks becomes equally critical and challenging, because the network is the lifeblood of modern enterprises. Failure to analyze, monitor and secure will result in network downtime, which can quickly cost organizations millions of dollars in lost revenue. For example, monitoring directly impacts Service Providers’ revenue, since it ensures accurate and verifiable billing, roaming charge backs, and advertisement data tracking.
