Cubro micro TAP electrical (copper) Taps

Cubro micro TAP

The CUBRO µTap is designed to tap one 10/100 Base-T link. This small, flexible and cheap Tap that doesn't require electricity is the ideal device for users who only need monitoring from time to time.

The setup is very simple and needs no
configuration at all. On the monitoring output any standard NIC card can be used as the receiving device in combination with any capture tool „example: Wireshark“

But you need two NIC cards to capture both directions !

In case you dont cave two NIC cards in your computer you can use the Cubro Ethernet USB Converter. This plug-and-play device adds two full ethernet interfaces to your computer and then you can capture poth directions easily.

  • USB 3.0 to Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

    USB 3.0 to Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

    The Cubro USB 3.0 to Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter lets you add two Gigabit Ethernet ports to your laptop or Ultrabook™ computer through a single USB 3.0 port, and features an integrated USB 3.0 pass-through port that keeps your USB port available for use with external storage or other peripherals. Each RJ45 port supports 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and is fully compatible with IEEE 802.3i/u/ab standards.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Aggregation of two 10 Gbit span ports to 1 10 Gbit output with EX2+

    This application is normally not possible because the EX2+ has only two 10 Gbit ports and you need 3 to do this job.  But we at Cubro give our units some extra features to do this with two ports.

    A optical ports has an transmitter and a receiver part, this two “ports” can be used separately in all Cubro NPB. The other feature what you need is the optical tap at the back.

    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.
