Fluke Networks Acquires ClearSight Networks

Fluke Networks, the leader in network installation and analysis, announced that it has acquired ClearSight Networks, a leading provider of network analysis
tools for real-time application monitoring, protocol analysis and
troubleshooting. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

ClearSight’s industry-leading products provide network engineers deep
visibility into their network traffic. Insights into performance, security and
anomalies are delivered through the ClearSight Analyzer (CSA) and Network Time
Machine (NTM) product lines. ClearSight’s leading protocol analysis, deep packet
inspection and forensic stream-to-disk technologies further strengthen Fluke
Networks’ leadership position in network analysis, monitoring and testing.

Enterprise IT managers, network engineers and data center managers are
challenged with ensuring that networks maintain high service quality and 24/7
reliability in order to support business critical applications and services.
Engineers must monitor, analyze and troubleshoot networks to assure this
performance and quickly isolate problems when they do arise. Whether 1G, 10G or
Wi-Fi, local networks pervade all aspects of business operations and Fluke
Networks delivers a full line of systems, analyzers and tools that enable
engineers to deal with the proliferation of IP-based applications and services,
including IP voice and video.

"ClearSight’s network analysis solutions maximize network engineers’ ability
to actively monitor critical links carrying high volumes of network traffic for
performance bottlenecks, security anomalies and intermittent disruptions," said
Arif Kareem, President, Fluke Networks. "ClearSight’s powerful historical
analysis, when coupled with deep packet inspection and monitoring, provide the
comprehensive visibility needed to isolate, diagnose and resolve problems before
they impact network performance."

ClearSight offers CSA, a premium software protocol analyzer, and NTM, a
real-time network traffic monitoring solution that employs deep packet
inspection and stream-to-disk storage capacity for historical analysis. NTM
supports both 1G and 10G Ethernet connectivity in portable and distributed
versions. CSA software is a feature-rich and easy-to-use protocol analysis
solution for laptops. ClearSight’s NTM monitors and captures every packet in a
two-way traffic flow for up to one month of data from a single GbE link. The
company’s products combine a simple user interface with the ability to capture,
index and classify complex network data, providing an extremely intuitive method
for managing a network to support business critical applications and
high-performance services.

"Fluke Networks’ philosophy of providing Network SuperVision, giving
users superior visibility and insight into networking infrastructures they can’t
get anywhere else, is a natural fit with ClearSight," said Sam Li, technology
founder of ClearSight. "Our products have defined ease-of-use in protocol
analysis and application analysis visualization. We provide tools that are easy
enough for less experienced technicians yet deep enough for complex root cause
analysis by senior engineers. FNET delivers similar breakthroughs in ease of use
across their entire line -our combination is powerful."
