I-9196 DWDM WAVELENGTH INTERCEPTOR

Gain access to all 96 wavelengths within DWDM C-Band

Interceptor

DWDM technology is enabling exponential growth in transport bandwidth across Metro and Long-haul fiber networks. Despite the fact that these networks represent a tremendous opportunity for cyber intelligence gathering, monitoring access to DWDM networks can be extremely expensive and very complex to manage. Traditionally, determining the network content of all 96 wavelengths within the DWDM C-Band grid required many pieces of equipment and could be a lengthy trial and error process.

Scalable Network Visibility and Cyber Security Solutions for 100G and 10G networks

The NetQuest I-9196 is the first purpose-built full-duplex DWDM Wavelength Monitoring solution capable of discovering which DWDM C-Band wavelengths are in use and reporting the details of the traffic carried over each of these wavelengths.  This includes identification of signaling speeds from 2.5G to 100G and transport technologies including OTN, SONET/SDH and native Ethernet.  The details of the discovered DWDM network can be used to direct individual wavelengths to the desired network monitoring tool(s).   The colorless wavelength switching fabric within the I-9196 is protocol and speed agnostic making it the perfect choice for intercept and performance management applications.

Features

  • Access to all 96 wavelengths within DWDM C-Band
  • Auto Discover traffic content on each individual wavelength
  • 2.5G, 10G, 40G and 100G including coherent signaling
  • Supports ITU Grid spacing for 50 & 100 Ghz
  • Report optical power on each wavelength
  • Target up to 8 wavelengths per monitored input port
  • Eliminate ROADM’s use for monitoring DWDM C-Band wavelengths

The I-9196 provides a cost-effective method to quickly discover the contents of a DWDM network and provide instantaneous access to the individual wavelengths of interest without any previous knowledge of the network’s provisioning.

This state-of-the-art network monitoring access platform includes comprehensive traffic identification and intercept capabilities for monitoring today’s global packet optical transport networks.

I-9010 10G INTERCEPTOR

The NetQuest I-9010 Interceptor delivers a comprehensive 10G network monitoring access platform including automated network traffic discovery and intercept capabilities for monitoring today’s optical transport networks. Without any prior knowledge of the network provisioning, the I-9010 is capable of discovering and reporting the contents of a variety of packet or TDM service networks including OTN OTU2/OTU2e/OTU1e, LAN-PHY, and deeply channelized SONET/SDH OC-192/STM-64. Subsequently, the I-9010 enables selective targeting of precise data traffic by removing framing/transport protocols and routing this traffic to specialized Ethernet-based tools for deeper level analysis.

I-2400 SONET/SDH INTERCEPTOR

The NetQuest I-2400 SONET/SDH Interceptor provides non-intrusive, out-of-band, selective access to packet streams on concatenated or channelized SONET/SDH broadband links and backbones ranging from high speed OC-48/STM-16 to low speed E1/T1, fractional E1/T1, and DS0. In doing so, the Interceptor I-2400 enables Ethernet-based tools to gain access to packet data traffic independent of TDM transport network or protocol type.
