3Com Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Network Traffic Analyzer (NTA) is a graphical network monitoring tool that utilizes industry-supported flow standards to provide real-time information about the top users and applications consuming network bandwidth.
A reliable solution for enterprise and campus network traffic analysis, IMC NTA statistics help network administrators better understand how network bandwidth and resources are being used, as well as which source hosts carry the heaviest traffic. This information is invaluable in network planning, monitoring, optimization and troubleshooting - IMC NTA identifies network bottlenecks and applies corrective measures to ensure optimal throughput.
IMC NTA utilizes instruments embedded in switches and routers to collect its data. Support for most standard traffic monitoring protocols - sFlow, Netflow and Netstream - eliminates the need for expensive probes and reduces the cost of network monitoring to deliver the promise of low TCO by design.
Determining which traffic is genuine is one of the key issues in network management, because increasing network capacity is an investment that affects policies, network usage and your entire enterprise. Eliminating conspicuous bandwidth consumption increases the ROI you extract from your network, as well as employee productivity. IMC NTA's NetFlow analyzer provides detailed information on bandwidth usage patterns to facilitate traffic analysis, capacity planning and making policy decisions. Granular insight of specific applications, users and ports enables network managers to determine the exact source of traffic spikes and bursts. With this information, they can proactively monitor, control and make informed decisions about how to best allocate bandwidth.Product Highlights
