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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
