Allegro Packets announces new 3500 / 5500 product family

Leipzig, Nuremberg 04 October 2018 - Allegro Packets proudly announces new releases of their 3500 /5500 series of Allegro Network Multimeters. The new hardware platforms 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.

Allegro Network Multimeters are among the most advanced tools for troubleshooting and network analysis. The 3500 /5500 series provide statistics, selective packet and history mode filtering across Layers 2 - 7 in real-time. The web interface offers both comprehensive overviews and detailed statistics (e.g. IP, MAC addresses, VLANs, QoS, L7 protocols and Video over IP). The hardware platform enables the acquisition of all data with millisecond accurate time stamps.


The Back-in-Time Packet Broker

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.


German Quality

The Allegro 3500/5500 series was developed in Leipzig. Purchase of the Allegro Network Multimeter includes direct support from our highly qualified team in Germany.

The new release of the 3500 /5500 series will be presented to the public for the first time at the IT security trade fair it-sa, taking place in Nuremberg from 9th to 11th October 2018 in Hall 9, Stand 120.
