Our devices in overview
The Allegro 200 is our entry-level device. It's barely any bigger than a smartphone and weighs just 260g. This ultraportable solution is particularly suitable for small offices. The Allegro 200 can analyze the data traffic of up to 50 PCs or servers and data rates of up to 1 GBit/s full duplex immediately after start-up inline or on the mirror port.
The Allegro 200 is available as a portable version with a 2GB in-memory database.
Connections: It has 2x 1 GBit/s ports for analyzing one link inline or on a TAP or for up to two mirror ports.
Management is possible via an USB Ethernet adapter or USB wireless LAN adapter (provided).
An external hard disk or SSD can be connected via USB 3 as a packet ring buffer, enabling continuous recording of up to 2 GBit/s.
Allegro 1000 Series
Allegro 1000 Series devices are low-cost entry-level versions for the 1G and 10G analysis of up to 10,000 servers. They allow an exact analysis of an entire corporate site. Depending on the network traffic, this is sufficient for a complete analysis of all data from the past few days, which can be retrieved in real time from the in-memory database. All devices can be upgraded with SFP+ ports, packet ring buffer, and additional in-memory database storage. The SFP+ ports allow an analysis of short- and long-range fiber connections. The Allegro 1000 series can also be installed transparently inline in the spanning tree or LACP trunks to analyze errors.
The Allegro 1000 Series comprises two versions: the portable Allegro 1000 and the 1U rack-mounted Allegro 1200. They both have the same processing power. The Allegro 1000 is designed as a portable system and therefore has only one expansion slot. The Allegro 1200 comes with two slots: one for extended network ports and the other for a large internal hard drive. Both devices can also be fitted with a fast NVMe SSD.
In their basic versions, the Allegro 1000 and 1200 have 2 x SFP+ for 1G and 10G SFP modules, 5 x 1G-Base-T for analysis and 1 x 1G-Base-T as a management port. In addition, there are expansion cards for up to 4 x SFP+ ports, 2 x 10G-Base-T ports, 4 x 1G-Base-T ports, 2 x SFP28, 2 x QSFP28 or 2 x SFP+ with GPS connection for precise timestamps in the nanosecond range. The basic version is equipped with a 16 GB in-memory database, which can be expanded to 64 GB or 128 GB.
An internal hard disk or NVMe SSD can be installed as a ring buffer. The NVMe SSD enables a continuous write speed of up to 10 GBit/s. Just like the Allegro 200, external USB 3 HDDs or SSDs can also be connected.
Allegro 3000 Series
The Allegro 3000 Series fronts the high-end Allegro devices. They are suitable for ISPs, large data centers and large enterprise networks for link analysis on nodes with a high load exceeding 10 GBit/s. The 3000 Series has a packet processing rate four times higher than the 1000 Series, enabling real-time and historical analysis for up to 40 GBit/s. The optional 25G (2x SFP28) and 40G/100G (2x QSFP28) expansions make the Allegro 3000 Series the analyzer to use on networks with 25, 40 or 100G connections.
Like the 1000 Series, the Allegro 3000 Series comprises both 1U devices (Allegro 3200) and portable versions (Allegro 3000). They also have the same connections as the 1000 Series. All the expansion options for the 1000 Series are also available for the Allegro 3000 and 3200.
The basic version of the Allegro 3000 Series has a 64GB in-memory database for large network analysis, which can be expanded to 128GB.
As with the Allegro 1000, an internal hard disk, NVMe SSD or external USB 3 HDD/SSD can be used as a ring buffer.
Allegro 3500 / 5500 Series
The 3500 / 5500 series of Allegro Network Multimeters are optimized for analysis, monitoring, verification and troubleshooting of 1Gbps to 100 Gbps network connections. The systems are designed for extremely high recording, analysis and storage rates and provide retroactive verification of up to 800,000 IP addresses and up to 256 million connections.
Allegro Network Multimeter appliances are ideal for use in large data centers, core networks and ISP infrastructures. The Allegro 3500 / 5500 is equipped with a back-in-time function and enables precise selection of the recorded information. These data can be extracted as Pcaps via a browser download with a single click. In addition, selected data can be individually imported back into the network to recreate specific events or security incidents.
The 3500 / 5500 series has several extensions for additional connections and memory options. The dual QSFP28 option allows up to 60 Gbps of real-time traffic to be checked in 100 Gbps environments. Alternatively, the number of ports can be increased up to 20, selectable from 1, 2.5, 5, 10, 25 or 40 GB Ethernet Cu / SFP+ / QSFP ports. The memory size for processing historical data in the in-memory database is 96 GB or 192 GB in the basic version and can be expanded up to 1536 GB. The ring buffer for recording the traffic of a link or the selected data traffic enables the extraction of historical packets. The ring buffer can be dynamically expanded up to 360 TB.
