Product Launch of the Allegro x400 Series
Product Highlight 2021: Introduction of the Allegro x400 Series
Leipzig, Germany, 08.06.2021 - Network analysis specialist Allegro Packets is expanding its product family with high-end appliances featuring 192 TB of storage on a 2U chassis: the Allegro Network Multimeter 1400, 3400 and 5400.
The Allegro Network Multimeters from Allegro Packets are measurement instruments for detailed analysis of network traffic of all sizes. The Allegro x400 series is positioned between the Allegro x300 1U series and the Allegro x500 4U series. The new series complements the powerful family of the Allegro Network Multimeters and reinforces Allegro Packets' technological leadership in network measurement and analysis.
The Allegro x400 series consists of three appliances: Allegro 1400, Allegro 3400 and Allegro 5400. Just 2U high, the new appliances have 192 TB of storage for recording capture rates of up to 10 GBit/s for 3.5" HDDs or up to 80 GBit/s for SSDs in 10G / 40G / 100G / 200G network traffic. The analysis and monitoring tools in this series are equipped with 12 x 3.5" HDD slots. Up to seven measurement cards with 1G to 200G ports are supported. These can be equipped with up to four additional ports each, for a total of up to 28 ports. The In-memory database can be expanded up to 4TB and the integrated packet ring buffer can be expanded by petabytes with the Allegro JBODs. The devices in the series differ only in memory and performance. The software is identical for all Allegro Packets appliances. The x400 series is designed for very high capture recording, analysis and storage rates and can therefore be optimally deployed in ISPs, data centers and core networks.
"After the product launch of the Allegro x300 series in 2020, we are already following up with the next product highlight," said Klaus Degner, Managing Director and Product Manager of Allegro Packets. "We are proud to continuously evolve our powerful network analyzers to meet new market demands and customer needs alike."
Like all the other Allegro Network Multimeters, the x400 series provides real-time statistics and selective packet filtering over Layers 2 - 7 of the OSI model in real-time and history mode. The web interface provides both comprehensive overviews and detailed statistics (e.g. IP, MAC addresses, VLANs, QoS, L7 protocols and Voice over IP). Unlike other debuggers, Allegro Network Multimeters are actual real-time measurement tools that monitor up to 200G links in real-time and detect errors in seconds.
