Savvius is launching a new model of its Insight packet capture devices. These tabletop appliances are designed for branch and small office locations and can capture packets at up to 1Gbps.
The newest addition is the Insight Plus, which includes a 1Tbyte SSD drive and 16Gbytes of RAM. The Insight Plus model includes VoIP analysis. It can report on jitter and latency for voice traffic, and provide MOS ratings on specific calls.
Savvius has also updated its base Insight appliance to include a 256Gbyte SSD drive and 8GB of RAM.
Both devices include three 1Gbps ports, two bridge ports, and a management port. Customers that buy the Insight appliance also get a copy of Savvius’s Omnipeek software for reporting, analysis, and packet decodes.
Customers typically run the Omnipeek software on a laptop and then log into Insight devices for analysis. Customers can use their single copy of Omnipeek to access multiple Insight devices, but they’ll have to examine data on each box individually. Packets captured in Insight can also be exported to other tools, such as Wireshark.
Customers can also use a Web browser for dashboard views such as top application use, performance, bandwidth utilization, packet sizes, response times, and other information.
Savvius is positioning Insight for use cases such as retail and banking where IT departments want visibility into traffic at remote and branch locations. It’s also positioning it as a tool for consultants and MSPs that can either deploy and operate Insights on behalf of customers, or bring them onsite for troubleshooting.
The Insight Plus and the upgraded Insight model will be available in June. Insight Plus is $4,395 per device. The upgraded Insight is $1,995.
