Garland Technology and Accolade Technology Announce Technology Partnership

Share Article

Garland Technology today announced a technology partnership with Accolade Technology, the technology leader in high performance packet capture and application acceleration adapters/NICs. Garland Technology and Accolade began a technology partnership in June 2015 through collaborative testing, measurement and validation of Garland’s 10G, 40G and 100G passive fiber network TAPs with Accolade’s ANIC adapters which are widely deployed within global OEM tier 1 network monitoring, security and OEM customer appliances.

Joint Solution for Garland Technology and Big Switch Networks

Garland’s TAPs exceeded the demanding benchmarks and high performance requirements of our mission critical testing protocol

Leading TAP Manufacturer, Garland Technology, joins forces with Accolade Technology to provide 100% data access for 100% packet capture.

Accolade’s ANIC products assure 100% packet capture, enabling real-time network monitoring and analysis. The combination of Garland Technology’s 10G, 40G and 100G passive fiber network TAPs and Accolade’s ANIC adapters provides a compelling high-performance network monitoring solution featuring:

Lossless packet capture
Hardware time stamping
Real-time network analysis
Packet filtering
Network management

“We partnered with Accolade to test and validate our new 10G, 40G and 100G passive fiber TAPs with Accolade’s market leading ANIC-40K3 and ANIC-200K4 application acceleration adapters.” explains Chris Bihary, CEO and Co-Founder of Garland Technology. “This is a prime example of how the network visibility community works together on joint solutions to ensure 100% packet capture in network monitoring and analysis appliances.”

Network traffic demands are exploding out of control as users demand greater access to data at faster speeds. Network architectures are sprawling as a result, leaving companies to search for more effective network monitoring and analysis solutions for both security and performance purposes.

“We have rigorously tested our products against Garland Technology’s comprehensive line of 10G, 40G and 100G passive fiber network TAPs and are pleased to announce our technology partnership.” said Robbie Dhillon, CEO of Accolade Technology. “Garland’s TAPs exceeded the demanding benchmarks and high performance requirements of our mission critical testing protocol.”

Network TAPs are considered the best practice by network professionals when 100% packet capture and traffic visibility is required. Companies that still rely on their traditional SPAN port will eventually experience lost packets from oversubscribed ports, thus making their network monitoring and analysis appliances ineffective.

“As we continue to make strides to adapt to new network visibility standards, it’s critical to align with technology partnerships like Accolade to ensure 100% packet capture.” said Bihary.
