The nGenius® 6000 series packet flow switch (PFS) is a large-scale, high-performance, highdensity blade and chassis system that bridges the gap between 1G, 10G, 40G, and 100G
Ethernet networks and tools.
The nGenius 6010 packet flow switch model is designed for NEBS level III compliance, and
consists of a 15RU chassis that supports up to ten line cards, with each line card supporting
up to 600 Gbps throughout – for a chassis total throughput of 6 Tbps and up to 600 ports. All
ports on each line card are enabled by default, with each port configurable as an input port,
intermediate (service) port, or output port.
With the NETSCOUT® pfsMesh, a self-organizing architecture, traffic capture devices can be
deployed in a redundant, low-latency meshed architecture for dynamic and fault-tolerant
visibility that can scale to over 40001 ports across LAN and WAN environments.
Delivery Optimization
Beyond large scale aggregation and speed conversion, nGenius 6010 packet flow switch
supports line rate hardware-based packet filtering and session-based load balancing of
packets to tools.
Hardware-based, user-independent filtering allows traffic to be distinguished according to
source and/or destination MAC address, VLAN inner/outer ID, IP address, SCTP/TCP/UDP
port, as well as by specific protocols, such as HTTP, VoIP ( SIP, RTP), and others. A custom filter
enables more granular specification, specifically within the payload of a packet. Filters can be
ingress, egress, and overlapping.
Flow-aware load balancing provides control of traffic distribution to monitoring tools, increasing
output capacity while maintaining session integrity. For example, a 100G network can be
captured and automatically balanced across multiple 10G monitoring tool ports based on userdefined session criteria. Flow-aware load balancing can operate in tandem with hardware-based
filtering or independently.
Total number of ports in a single pfsMesh is dependent on quantity and complexity of filtering.

Security Optimization
To take action as offenders and bad actors are detected, the active inline security tools need to see
and handle all the traffic that needs to be inspected.
nGenius packet flow switches with inline tool chaining allow aggregation, filtering, and loadbalancing of actual network traffic toward multiple inline security applications whilst maintaining
only a single intrusion into each network link, and provide application-specific health checks
(not just heartbeats) to ensure the active security tools are connected and functioning properly.
External bypass TAPs can be used to ensure that the security policies are adhered to during
power failure.
Management
nGenius 6010 packet flow switch can be locally managed via a serial console and remotely
managed via a Web GUI, CLI, and NETCONF XML API using HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, or Telnet. The system
can be monitored via Syslog and SNMP.
The devices support field software updates for maintenance and feature or performance
enhancements. nGenius 6010 packet flow switch can be centrally managed and configured.
nGenius 6010 packet flow switch also provides automated event driven monitor output traffic
direction and responses (Syslog messages, SNMP traps, light front LED, deactivate ports).
Virtual Access
For accessing traffic that is completely virtualized and never makes it onto a physical network,
traffic can be mirrored and forwarded from the virtual network to the physical network using
tunneling protocols such as NVGRE (L2GRE) or ERSPAN, which encapsulate the traffic of interest.
The nGenius 6010 packet flow switch can be the destination of these tunnels and terminate
the tunnel, and the traffic can then be forwarded on to monitoring applications either as is or
de‑encapsulated.
Power and Compliance
Designed for NEBS III compliance, nGenius 6010 packet flow switch supports hot-swappable
power entry, fans, air filters, and line cards. Redundant power allows seamless transitions between
power systems to ensure uptime. The fabric plane also has redundancy and the management
plane is redundancy-ready.
