AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND: Endace Ltd, a leader in high speed, packet capture networking technology, and Vixtel, specialists in network monitoring, lawful intercept and mobile network analysis and optimisation, have entered into a technology partnership agreement.
Based in Hong Kong, with offices in China and Taiwan, Vixtel develops network monitoring software for mobile and fixed-line network operators, large enterprise corporations and national security departments with a strong focus on mobile network operators. Vixtel customers include Alcatel, China Mobile, SmarTone and i-Cable in China and Hong Kong, and CHT (Chunghwa Telecom) and Siemens in Taiwan.
Under the terms of the agreement, Vixtel will deploy software-based network monitoring and management solutions powered by Endace's DAG cards and Ninjabox platform.
Endace's unique packet capture technology enables guaranteed capture and sub-millisecond accurate time-stamping of all network packets, of any size, on any network interface, up to speeds of 40Gb/s.
"The collaboration with Endace enables us to leverage Endace's proven expertise in high-speed packet capture," says Michael Sie, Sales and Marketing Director of Vixtel. "We tested hardware from a number of companies, and Endace's DAG technology was the only solution that provided us with the accuracy and performance we needed for our real-time, high-speed, packet capture solutions."
"Our customers operate some of the fastest and most technically advanced networks in the world and require network monitoring and management solutions that can scale to meet their needs. Endace's technology provides us with an edge-to-core solution that will enable us to deliver faster, more scalable solutions," Sie says.

"Vixtel has tremendous expertise in working with large network operators –- particularly mobile operators –- to provide them with sophisticated monitoring solutions, and brings a great deal of experience to this partnership," Stone says.
"We look forward to working closely with them to help them leverage Endace's high-speed, packet-capture technology in their V1000 NetVista, V2000 NetInsight and V3000 NetGuard solutions."
