Another version of the product for layer 4 available as Packetmaster EX48600
The EXA48600 features highly advanced technology. It is an advanced system which can handle billions of packets up to OSI layer 7. The product is based on an advanced chip design combined with a high-performance multi-core host controller. Additionally, the OS (operating system) running on this multi-core host controller is of a totally innovative design. These features make the EXA48600 capable of handling all types of tunnels from GRE, VXLAN to MAC in MAC, and this with an impressive performance up to 2,8 TBit/sec. There is no backplane oversubscription issue.
This application shows the EXA48600 in combination with EXA24160. The challenge was to conduct application filtering in a GTP tunnel. The EXA48600 removes the GTP tunnel and load balances the traffic, and is session aware to the two EXA24160 which do application detection. The traffic is tagged and sent back to EX48600. The EX48600 then sends the traffic to the relevant tools.
!Note: The power footprint is important for devices that run 24/7
