The Cascade Gateway is designed to collect flow data (NetFlow, sFlow, J-Flow, IPFIX and other popular flow statistics) from existing network infrastructure devices and send it to Cascade Profiler for analysis and reporting. Together the solution provides cost-effective, enterprise-wide network visibility into network performance, enabling organizations to solve performance problems faster and improve network and application performance.
Cascade Gateway collects flow data from across the enterprise, aggregates it, compresses it, encrypts it, and then transmits it to Cascade Profiler for automated analysis, alerting, and reporting. It provides network administrators with real-time visibility and historical insight into network metrics such as peak usage, QoS levels, and IP conversations, enabling them to make cost-effective decisions for optimizing network service delivery.
Cascade Gateway is designed to track 100% of all flow traffic to provide an enterprise-wide view of network traffic and performance, enabling IT managers to make network decisions with all the data - not just a subset. Cascade Gateway can be deployed with Cascade Profiler in the data center or multiple Gateways can deployed regionally with all reporting to a centrally located Cascade Profiler for additional scalability and performance.
