Looking Glass

The BENOCS Looking Glass provides you access to backbone routing information as well as the ability to inspect routes from multiple points in your network.

What is it?

The Looking Glass is a fast, slim and scalable solution that listens as a route-reflector client to the BGP streams on your network. Easily look up routing tables by AS numbers or IP prefixes, in IPv4 and IPv6 anytime and anywhere. Additionally, it comes with the high performance BENOCS Core Engine (CE) – a proven high performer in some of the world’s largest telco networks. Ping and Traceroute are also supported, which would be integrated into your network based on your network’s requirements.

How we do it

The BENOCS Looking Glass can be made public and/or paired with BENOCS Analytics for a private looking glass, which shows full BGP detail and even holds historical snapshots for debugging and forensics. It is also customizable to match your company’s branding and image.

Set up made easy! Deploy the BENOCS Looking Glass as an additional feature to your already installed BENOCS deployment or add it to your network with very little equipment. For the additional Ping and Traceroute feature, have commands issued directly on the router or via smart virtual network interface that infer round-trip times dynamically from remote locations. No de-centralized infrastructure is needed anymore!
