Skylight Flow Broker Feature

Diversity of capture points enables segmentation of the application chain, delivering critical insight for fault domain isolation (FDI). However, capturing wire data close to end-users is not always practical, especially at remote branches lacking onsite IT resources.

Accedian’s Skylight™ employs flow broker technology to remotely capture and deliver wire data to a centralized Skylight datastore. Lossless, secure delivery ensures every packet is delivered and analyzed. Lightweight capture modules require no local configuration, making install as simple as Plug & Go.

With Skylight’s flow broker feature, enterprises can now monitor their entire IT infrastructure without gaps, achieving a complete view of every business-critical application, end-to-end.

Enterprise use cases for flow broker:

  • NAPM using Skylight performance sensors
  • VoIP, video, and teleconferencing quality of experience
  • Security and IDS – extending visibility, increasing detection surface area
