LeCroy Spins Off Network Products Division

LeCroy Corp., a network testing and measurement company, said today it has spun of its network products division to form Vigilant Networks. The new company will market Big Tangerine, a network monitoring product based on LeCroy technology.

Big Tangerine tests all network components, including switches, routers, hubs, and cables, to detect the cause of network congestion without having to shut down the network. Such shutdowns can be costly for E-businesses that count on around-the-clock uptime.

The product uses gigasample acquisition technology, which captures electromagnetic waves, enabling network managers to clearly identify the location of illegal packets or collisions throughout the network, and noise from outside sources. "You can see the degradation of components before they actually fail," says Leslie Swanson, Vigilant Networks CEO and president.

Big Tangerine begins testing at the first layer of the network infrastructure, which is where problems are sometimes overlooked, says Tere Bracco, principal analyst for enterprise infrastructure at Current Analysis. "A lot of problems occur at level one, the signal level, such as environmental problems [where the network is located], changes in temperature and radio frequency interference."

The product is available now and is already being used by customers such as Boeing, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, NASA, MCI WorldCom, and Oracle. Pricing starts at $25,000.
