Packetmaster EX20400

The Packetmaster EX20400 is a network packet broker and network controller switch that aggregates, filters and load balances network traffic sent to network monitoring, security and management tools. The EX20400 allows you to filter and load-balance traffic from 10 or 100-Gbps link to multiple 1-Gbps monitoring tools or aggregate multiple 1-Gbps links to 10 or 100-Gbps monitoring tools. The EX20400 also supports traffic modification as well as changing, removing and adding VLANs, MPLS, VXLAN,NVGRE/MLAG/GENEVE.

Application: 500 10 Gbit port cross connect with 400 Gbit non blocking backbone

This illustration shows:

  • 6 x EX20400 connected over 4 x 100 Gbit to one EX32100 to build a 500 port 10 Gbit cross connect
  • The connection is layer 2 transparent
  • To have full control and secure transfer, all traffic is transported in VXLAN tunnels across the system
  • At the output the VXLAN tunnel header will be removed
  • The management is centralized
