Buy more NPBs (& tools) NPB VISIBILITY TOOLS NPB VISIBILITY TOOLS Growing your network? Buy even more NPBs NPB VISIBILITY TOOLS Box-by-box config, troubleshooting (Complex & Expensive) Limited, siloed network visibility (Suboptimal tool usage) Siloed access to your high-priced tools (Suboptimal tool usage) TAPS / SPAN Ports NPB: Network Packet Breaker
