As a network grows and an enterprise needs to monitor either a large number of network segments, or a large, distributed network, the need for aggregation arises. Securing and monitoring the network is the ultimate goal. Through the aggregation layer, you can utilize more of your network resources and reduce the number of ports necessary to provide total visibility to your tools. Maintaining visibility of all traffic is essential to seeing return on investment, but doing so is easier said than done with modern data center designs.
This white paper will explore:
- Where aggregation fits in your network
- The four tiers of network visibility
- How to leverage your tapped links with aggregation
- Creating an Effective Aggregation Layer
- Aggregation at the Core
