Stephen Collins, network prominence and analytics researcher during ACG Research, pronounced that Netscout is “embracing disruption” with a new products. “The value in networking is relocating from specialised, purpose-built hardware to software-driven open discriminate platforms that scale simply while ensuring coherence and lively for craving and use provider network operators, and Netscout is assisting a business realize this value.”

The PFS 5000 products are being treated as a initial step towards a finish disaggregation of network parcel attorney functionality. By regulating a controller-less open discriminate approach, a association says that a business benefit ‘significant flexibility.’ Scalability is programmed and network prominence is ‘more agile’.

Customers can use a software-driven models in stand-alone deployments or with other PFS products, all of that use Netscout’s Packet Flow Operation System.
