Network and Application Analysis and Performance Management is one of PlexNet's speciality and is an important part of securing the network environment and ensuring business continuity through operability.

Once infrastructure and/or applications are deployed network and performance analysis tools should be part of an everyday management strategy to ensure that the environment is still performing as it did when first deployed. In addition ensuring that patching and upgrades don't cause ongoing issues is important to monitor pre and post upgrade windows. 

Many solutions can be a drain on productivity and profits, as they may be expensive to purchase, cumbersome to maintain, and time-consuming to execute within the application development security life cycle. At PlexNet we understand this and constantly work with our clients to ensure that an optimum solution is always provided in concert with budgetary guidelines.

PlexNet's solution set covers both wired and wireless as well as applications traversing that infrastructure. Additionally analysis the impact to security across both wired and wireless is also covered within our Analysis portfolio.

PlexNet's range of network, application and security analysis and performance tools include the following leading edge solutions:

Infrastructure Overview

Network Taps
Tapping networks provides far better visibility to spanning or mirroring switches and routers. Taps allow all traffic, even illegal or corrupted packets to ensure full visibility of a network's performance and health can be understood. Port Mirroring or Spanning can be unreliable at times and in some cases put undue stress on the switch doing the spanning. Taps can be used as portable troubleshooting devices or be part of a larger environment feeding multiple tap points back to a distributed tap, Packet Broker or Packet Flow Switch.
PacketBrokers / Packet Flow Switches
Packet broking and tapping is a key part of providing visibility to network, application and security analysis tools. In environments where only spanning is available or a mix of spanning and tapping is available packet brokers and distributed aggregators can be deployed to combine traffic from multiple networks into a single analyser or to multiple toolsets or departments looking at different metrics. Being able to also provide a single bump in the wire to forward traffic to IPS/IDS or firewalls means that the multiple serial placement of devices can be alleviated. Additionally having the ability to shut down a link because of an attack or failure provides a high level of security confidence. Solutions are:
Optics & Patching
A number of our higher technical solutions require SFP/SFP+ modules and so PlexNet is able to offer the industry leading Finisar brand SFP covering 1Gbps up to 100Gbps. With a strong reliance on data integrity PlexNet only supplies Finisar because of it's superior chipset, thermal degradation and performance. Along with SFPs deploying analysis or tapping equipment also means that various lengths of fibre patch cables can be required. Being able to offer quality fibre optic cable from FSquared, which has been rigorously tested locally, means that PlexNet can offer a true turnkey solution. Completing this solution set our our break fix kits to help the datacenter or network engineer keep their physical environment operational:
