Fiber to SFP Converter TAP converter Taps

Fiber to SFP Converter TAP

With the growing market of active and passive Twinax cables, CUBRO now offers an effective solution to monitor these links. CUBRO provides a cost-effective, flexible and small device which converts the incoming traffic to an additional output port. The CUBRO Twinax Converter Tap converts the traffic from an SFP active/passive cable, 10 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet link to an optical output. We offer an additional battery option to allow for a passive solution. 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 after 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.

    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.

     

    100 Gbit LR4 multiple splitting

    Sometimes it is needed to tap a 100 Gbit LR4 link more than one time, this is not easy because the optical budget is too small to do that.

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
