Twinax Converter TAP converter Taps

Twinax Converter TAP

The CUBRO Converter TAP converts traffic from optical Gigabit Ethernet links to an SFP output. With its passive connection to the network it does not influence the traffic of the optical network link while allowing complete access to the traffic via the copper 1000B-T monitoring port. CUBRO provides a cost-effective, flexible and small device which converts the incoming traffic to an additional output port. The CUBRO Converter TAP uses SFP modules giving maximum flexibility to the user. It is possible to change or add SFPs during operation without interrupting other ports (hot-swap). Moreover, it is possible to use non-vendor specific SFPSs: SM, MM, COPPER, CWDM, BIDI in any combination. The path from the input to the output ports is fault-transparent. If the link on the input port is going down, the output ports follow with a short delay. The path from the input to the output ports is layer 1 to 7 transparent. Any error on the input port will be copied to all output ports.

    Monitoring offload

    The smart Cubro solution to use your existing monitoring system even when your data traffic is growing exponential !

    • Reduce Monitoring cost by off-loading the existing monitoring system.
    • Reducing not only Capex also Opex goes down because of less hardware resources.
    • Still the full metadata information on user plan traffic.

    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.

    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

     

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Cubro NPB units support bypass function

    The Cubro Bypass Application is a superior way to provide a fail-safe access port for an in-line monitoring appliance. From EX2 with Gbit up to EX 20400 with 100 Gbit bypass feature. With and without optical layer 1 switch support.

     

    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

    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.

    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.
