H5 Appliance range

The model depends on the volume of traffic to be observed from a few Mbps up to 10 Gbps full rate.

H5-10, 10 Mbps - 50 Mbps, for SMBs and Subsidiaries.

H5-200, 50 Mbps - 200 Mbps, for Enterprises.

H5-300, 200 Mbps - 1 Gbps, for Enterprises.

H5-700, 500 Mbps - 10 Gbps, for Data Centers, Service providers. 

All-in-one upgradable architecture

Based on an all-in-one upgradable architecture, H5 Appliance is a fully autonomous plug and play system. The appliance retrieves the data from network flows, logs it, and presents it to the user. The H5 appliance captures and analyzes the traffic and extracts the data from the applications for each flow of each active IP node on the network up to 10 Gbps without any loss.

External, passive solution

As an external, passive solution, H5 Appliance does not interact with the network flows. A powerful real-time collection process retrieves the information from the flows and calculates more than 50 metrics on the fly for all the IP flows: volume, network performance, application performance, MOS and jitters of multimedia flows (ToIP, video, etc.)

The monitored objects and the Business flows

An efficient database ensures the retention of the metrics over long periods of time (several months) using a robust and intelligent time aggregation process. The monitored objects and the Business flows enable users to track the elements of their IS (sites, users, business applications, etc.) by customizing the database.

Easy to deploy and use

Easy to deploy and use, whether installed on the mirror port of a switch or a network tap, installing it does not require interrupting the information system. With real-time traffic inspection, without any special configuration, H5-Appliance provides its first reports, graphics and alerts after only a few minutes of operation.


An effective all-in-one multi-service solution, H5 Appliance allows all IT teams to access the data. The H5-Dock real-time Java interface allows network engineers to analyze data on demand; the Web reporting portal allows managers to consult available reports at all times; the SNMP or email alerts allow the Help Desk to be immediately notified of an incident or abnormal situation.


The H5-Dock Java client is the user interface designed for network engineers. Once downloaded from the appliance, it remotely connects to its database and dynamically displays tables and graphs containing the values of metrics for the detected or configured network objects.

H5-DockH5-Dock can display multiple views for exploring the network flows across several geographical areas and time intervals. Powerful tools for data analysis such as the time zooming and drilling make it possible to diagnose isolated traffic anomalies amid thousands of network conversations.

From the H5-Dock, users can run filtered captures upon traffic demand and configure threshold alerts and periodic reports.

Business Dashboards allow the Help Desk and engineers, from the H5-Dock, to load a predefined statistics screen with one mouse click, displaying all the data needed to clarify a particular business context. The H5 system comes with a set of factory-configured business Dashboards, and it is possible to have new ones created through H5 Professional Services Audits. Examples:

  • VoIP performance for the site X (bit rate of RTP channels, MOS, jitter, etc.).
  • WAN link performance (load, who does what, latency measures, potential error rate).
  • Input traffic matrix of the Data Center.
  • List of 5 sites with the worst WAN performances, and more.

H5 Appliance web portal

The H5 Appliance web portal provides a reporting-centered environment for managers by offering periodic reports and their alerts. H5 Appliance’s multi-client/multi-context technology allows a system to be shared by giving competitive and partitioned access to users who belong to different organizations.
