Sessionmaster EXA Series

Cubro Sessionmaster EXA, is the next development stage of Cubro’s product line of Network packet Brokers. The Sessionmaster could do layer 7 filters with a large amount of rules. The Sessionmaster EXA, can do the same but he also understands protocols in higher layers, and can search for regular expressions in the packets. But to make this feature very useful, protocol decoding is vital. Today many mobile protocols are supported, on request protocols can be added. read more

The EXA understands network protocols, not only by the port number. The EXA can decode protocols similar to a probe. This feature is vital to do keyword and regular expression search, and to produce useful results. It make no sense to search for a regular expression in the full packet, you only want to search in the relevant fields to get a correct search output.

The Sessionmaster EXA Series products focus on the mobile core network, metropolitan area network (MAN), and Internet data center (IDC) big data monitoring. The Sessionmaster EXA Series helps our customer deploy their network application flexibly and quickly by aggregating, filtering, load-balancing and replicating the target traffic;deduplication, time-stamping, load-balancing the PSC/EPC signalling-plane and user-plane traffic, and distributing specified traffic to multiple monitoring tools effectively.

Cubro Solutions

STP Monitoring multi 100 Mbit links

To monitor hundreds of 100 Mbit links, like on an SMS centre or on an STP, Cubro offers and flexible and price wise solution with 100 Mbit Flextap and Cubro Packetmaster EX5-2 as aggregator and filter device.

Packetmaster as Patchfield

The Packetmaster EX can be used as intelligent patch field. This is feature is possible because the EX has no designated in and out port configuration. Each port is an input and an output at the same time.

Customer Solution!

Request: aggregation and filtering traffic for monitoring system 32 x 1 Gbit links & 10 x 10 Gbit links

EX2 media & speed converter

In this very simple solution the Packetmaster EX2 works only as a bidirectional media and speed converter. The size and the fan less construction, makes the EX2 the flexibles’ and cheapest device on the market.

Layer 1 Media Conversion

The Cubro 1/10 Gbit Media converter is a nice a simple tool to solve many problems in the daily network business. You can select the media by changing the SFP. The unique design supports also CWDM / DWDM and BIDI SFP.

Amplification

You can enlarge the transfer range of your media dramatically without risking errors on your data. The examples below show some common options, but a lot more combinations are possible.

EX2 10 Gbit monitoring with load balanced output

Use the integrated optical TAP to connect to the live link and use the load balancing features to monitor the traffic

EX2 Multi Gbit Cooper aggregation

The Packetmaster EX2 can work as a dual link TAP with dual aggregation output, with filtering and load balancing, at the same time.

384 x 10 Gbit ports cross connect

We use 6 Packetmaster EX 20400 to realize this 384 x 10 Gbit port cross connect !

  • 400 Gbit backbone
  • tunneling via VXLAN
  • non blocking
  • any to any & many to any & any to many support
  • easy expandable

 

Aggregation of an 10 Gbit link and output to an 10 Gbit port

Aggregation of one 10 Gbit link with optical splitter to 10 Gbit fibre output

GRE de - encapsulation

Virtual environments needs virtual Taps, virtual Taps need GRE to send it over the virtual switchto a real monitoring device. All Packetmaster units can decapsulate GRE traffic to get the data in their original format.

aggregation 40 x 10 Gbit links with one EX 20400

Cubro now offers a "NEW" Packetmaster solution with 80 x 10 Gbit Ethernet ports.
The base unit is the EX 20400 with a new firmware that gives us the possibility to convert
a 40 Gbit port into 4 independent 10 Gbit ports.
