Director

Introduction
Net Optics Director is a key component for building a comprehensive, consolidated monitoring infrastructure for both
network management and security. It extends the range of visibility for data monitoring across converged data and
digital voice networks, while eliminating monitoring port contention and minimizing the number of tools needed to
optimally manage the network.

while Span DNM models support 12 Span ports. The diagram shows one in-line and one Span DNM. Both in-line and
Span DNMs are available with either Copper or SX, LX, or ZX Fiber interfaces. Different DNM types can be mixed in
the same chassis, for example, one in-line Copper DNM and one Span Fiber DNM. The modules are hot-pluggable
for easy serviceability. One or both DNM slots can be populated. The DNM slots are numbered 1 for the slot on the left
and 2 for the slot on the right. If only one slot is populated, it should be slot 1.

Monitoring Tools
Still referring to Figure 2, six monitoring tools are connected to Director. They include protocol and performance analyzers,
