SYNESIS to Help Fermilab to Monitor and Control High-Bandwidth Data Flows
TOYO Corporation, the leading test and measurement company, today announced that Fermilab, a United States Department of Energy national laboratory, has selected 100G SYNESIS to be part of their set of network visibility and security tools.
With the ever-increasing speeds of today’s network infrastructures, the performance of the typical 100G network capture appliance is not adequate for Fermilab’s needs of troubleshooting, security and maintenance. Fermilab plans to use the SYNESIS 100G capture appliance to develop algorithms to monitor and secure deployments over high-bandwidth connections. In addition to packet capture without loss, SYNESIS provides the added feature to replay recorded network traffic up to 100G. This makes it possible to pre-test any planned high-speed network infrastructure designs with real-world data.
Having a product that can capture all network traffic up to 100G without any packet loss is critical. Security threats have become increasingly complex and can remain undetected by traditional security appliances, which can be oversubscribed, until damage is evident. To gain the ability to observe the entire network, every data frame must be captured and recorded at any traffic speed. With complete historical packet data, it becomes possible to investigate those previously undetected malicious data that traversed the network, and to fix the issue to solve the security threats. Therefore, it is important to capture 100% of all packets when it comes to security and to have a reliable tool to be the foundation for these security tests.
TOYO Corporation’s SYNESIS is able to capture 100G without any packet loss and is able to replay captured data back at a 100G wire rate speed, providing a possible solution to the difficult problem of securing high-bandwidth data transfers.
“TOYO’s SYNESIS network capture appliances are the choices for many different types of organizations around the world because of their powerful feature set and their ability to record every single packet without any single packet loss,” said Masaru Gomi, CEO and President at TOYO Corporation. “TOYO values the partnership with Fermilab. The customer also is aware that we recently added 200G support to SYNESIS allowing them and other customers to future-proof their investment as networks transition to that higher speed.”
The use of 100Gbps packet analyzer tools is not just for the Telecom world anymore, as these high-speed analyzers are also increasingly being used for security purposes.
TOYO has four years of experience engineering 100G packet capture appliances and over 30 years of experience in supplying high-speed capture and network management solutions. With many years of experience exceeding customer requirements in the Telecom, Financial, and Government industries throughout Asia, TOYO continues to expand further by supplying 100G capture appliances for use in security and to increase adoption in North America and European markets.
