The H3C SecBlade NetStream card (referred to as the SecBlade NS card hereinafter) is a leading network traffic collector and analyzer of the industry, which is applicable to the H3C S7500E/S9500E/S12500 series switches. The SecBlade NS card accurately detects all types of traffic and offers detailed statistics. The output information of the SecBlade NS card helps you fast locate causes of network anomalies and get objective views of network capacity plans, routing security, network application monitoring, and fault diagnosis. The SecBlade NS card presents you a visualized network and thus improves the whole network performance.
Deployed on a basic network device, the plug-and-play, scalable SecBlade NS card is easy to manage, and thus the maintenance cost is reduced.

The SecBlade NS card uses an industry-leading multi-core hardware platform. The concurrent processing mechanism allows the SecBlade NS card to collect and analyze all types of packets on the switch efficiently. Multiple SecBlade NS cards can be inserted into a switch for smooth upgrading of system performance.
The SecBlade NS card collects and analyzes MPLS packets and IP packets including UDP, TCP, and ICMP packets, and offers first-hand, accurate network operation information including the packet number, bytes, arrival time of the first packet, and that of the last packet of each data flow.
The SecBlade NS card sends NetStream data to the specified storage sever for facilitating analysis. To prevent packet loss, the SecBlade NS card can simultaneously send packets to the master and backup servers.
After collecting and analyzing all types of network traffic, or detecting anomalies, the SecBlade NS card outputs various statistical analysis reports such as history traffic analysis reports, traffic trend alerts, traffic anomaly detection, online user behavior analysis, and fine traffic reports of specific or all network devices, interfaces, or resource groups. These reports help you understand network operation comprehensively in time, and prevent network attacks effectively.
Inserted in an H3C switch, the SecBlade NS card expands the network traffic monitoring function of the switch. The SecBlade NS card shares the management platform with the switch, thus facilitating management.
Inserted in an H3C switch, the SecBlade NS card uses an independent hardware platform to provide services. This prevents single point failures and ensures high reliability of the network.
