XENON Packet Capture appliance

XENON’s new Packet Capture appliance is a zero packet loss real-time capture and storage solution for trading, MiFID II compliance, big data analysis, network performance monitoring, and data retention. With standard NICs, servers have trouble keeping up with 10GbE and 40GbE networks. Packets are inevitably lost making it impossible to conduct 100% accurate analysis and time-stamped storage.

100% Lossless Packet Capture Up to 40GbE

XENON Packet Capture integrates both hardware and software for reliable time-stamped capture and storage of data from a variety of high-speed networks. Applications include troubleshooting, regulatory compliance, monitoring service level agreements, security analytics, network forensics, record keeping, performance monitoring and tuning.

XENON Packet Capture provides 100% lossless capture up to 40GbE coupled with an open architecture for third party applications and export to on-premise and cloud storage systems.
