Increasing Network Visibility

Network Monitoring Solution.png


From software to hardware, OptiX   provides a comprehensive approach to

monitoring your applications and network. Get a complete analytical view
of what is running over your network devices, including IoT devices,
with Viewtimon and Viewtisight software.

Gain more visibility and control over your network with the
Viewtimon Probe and the maXtap™ Network Packet Broker
(NPB),which can be offered as a standalone hardware appliance,
a hybrid appliance (white box with maXtap™ software), or as a
cloud-based function.


All network monitoring starts with the ability to easily and

reliably collect network traffic without impacting network

operations. Our maXtap™ product line of Bypass Switches

and Network Taps ensures that you receive all traffic for

monitoring without compromising performance. And don’t

forget our maXpatch™ cables and network monitoring line
of maXoptix™ Optical Transceivers both of which have

customized options just for network monitoring

Network Monitoring Architecture

  1. Application & Network Monitoring Software
    Provides you with a complete view of the devices
    and applicationson your network.

  2. maXtap™ Bypass Switch
    Actively monitors inline devices to ensure a failed
    device does not take down the network while
    alerting system administrators of any device failures.

  3. maXoptix™ Optical Transceivers
    Available from 1-100Gbps for all active maXtap™

  4. maXtap™ Ultra High-Density Shelf
    Holds 1-16 modules in 1U for a total of 96/192 duplex/
    simplex taps.

  5. maXtap™ Passive Optical Tap Modules
    "Taps" network links to "copy" traffic without impacting network
    performance. Available with 1-6 network taps using LC adapters,
    MPO/MTP adapters, or a combination of both. Modules can be
    ordered for MMF, SMF or a combination of both with either 1x2
    or 1x3 taps.

  6. maXtap™ Network Packet Broker (NPB)
    Filters the desired traffic type and aggregates it onto a port connected to an analyzer. Additional intelligent functions such as time stamping, packet slicing, data deduplication, and data desensitization (masking) are also supported.

  7. maXoptix™ Monitoring Transceivers
    Provides two options: monitor only or transmit only depending on the functionality required to reduce the high cost of standard 40/100G transceivers. 

  8. maXpatch™ Fiber Optic Patch Cables
    Uses uniboot, push-pull connectors to simplify the insertion and removal of patch cables in the maXpatch products.

Delivering Existing & Next-Generation PON Services

Passive Optical Networks (PONs) have been deployed throughout the world for well over a decade now. Around 2000-2010, early versions of PON gave way to Gigabit PON or GPON. As IoT devices, online gaming, streaming, cloud applications and other services have risen in popularity, bandwidth needs have exponentially increased. Since then, higher data rates have been introduced to deal with the increase in bandwidth; however, this posed a problem for many service providers. Access services are extremely price sensitive, so if higher speed PONs were to be rolled out, they would have to take advantage of the existing infrastructure.


With OptiX  's Co-Existence (CEx) multiplexer, GPON and XGS-PON services can coexist on the same infrastructure. Additionally, new point-to-point or NG-PON2 services can also co-exist when used in conjunction with our OmniPON NG-PON2 mux or our maXimux DWDM multiplexer. Not only can they use the same infrastructure, but once you put our CEx in place, upgrade nightmares become a thing of the past. Now, when your customer needs more, you can just change their ONT from one PON type to the next without creating a service outage for their neighbors.

So, no matter what phase of PON evolution you are in now or moving to later, we have a solution!
