Maximise your investment in monitoring and security tools with a Network Packet Broker

The adoption of technologies like 5G SA, SDN, SD-WAN, virtualization, and IoT has led to increased complex networks. This has created ‘blind spots’. Blind spots refer to network traffic that remains invisible to network monitoring, security and analytics tools. These hidden areas can obscure network performance and security threats.

What is the role of a network packet broker?

Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) remove network traffic blind spots, filter network traffic, optimize network traffic, filter network traffic, load balance, and support high speed connections (currently) up to 400Gbps. NPBs receive and aggregate network traffic from network TAPs or switch SPAN ports which can then be filtered, deduplicated, and further optimized to enable more efficient use of performance and security tools.

What makes Cubro’s network packet broker different?

Cubro’s advanced NPBs are designed to meet the needs of complex networks and support numerous tunneling protocols including CFP, ERSPAN, GRE, GTP, MPLS, MPLS over UDP, NVGRE, and VXLAN. The key to realizing such an advanced feature set is that we are using high-performance silicons giving us the performance and flexibility to truly function as a Next Generation Network Packet Broker.
