Prashant Gandhi (VP Product Management & Strategy) and Sunit Chauhan (Head of Product Marketing) at Big Switch Networks discuss Big Tap Monitoring Fabric – an SDN visibility fabric based on bare metal switches that is gaining tremendous momentum with enterprise and service provider customers for ubiquitous monitoring of network traffic.

Traditional approach based on proprietary Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) has proven to be expensive and operationally complex, and hence most organizations have been reluctant to deploy NPBs for data center wide monitoring.  With Big Tap’s scale-out architecture, simplified operations and bare metal economics (at least 60% CapEx saving over NPBs), it is rapidly becoming an attractive alternative to NPBs.
