sinks), embedded in packet headers, to allow the receiver to decide the most excellent way to forward the multicast traffic.
Now, at rates up to OC-12, we can reliably monitor Layer 2 encapsulations, as well as Layer 3 and up packet headers and contents.
These optimizations enable existing architectures to more intelligently process packet headers at wire-speed even for the wider and more complex IPv6 addresses.
For example, StealthWatch can collect flow data from packet headers between two hosts or Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to verify that monitored flows are valid connections.
SPAUI is ideal for dense 10GE Ethernet solutions as it incorporates several extensions that focus on providing 10Gbps applications with speedup for packet headers, full rate 12GE, channelization, packet interleaving, and refined flow control.
It incorporates several extensions focused on providing 10Gbps applications with speedup (for packet headers, full rate 12GE), channelization, packet interleaving, and refined flow control.
errors including packet loss, sequence errors and jitter as well as the ability to edit IP packet headers to simulate different IPTV environments.
