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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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

    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.
