The Cubro Packetmaster EX2/EX2+ is a switch like device based on a newly-designed ASIC. EX2/EX2+ provides network visibility which is needed to maintain control of network traffic. The device can filter, manage, and analyse network traffic down to the user level. EX2 and EX2+ can effectively tell what is happening in the network, which reveals what has an associated impact on the company and the company’s productivity. Using this network packet broker (NPB), the user can feed the specific data flow directly into the monitoring tools for an exact analysis of any part of the network.
One of the challenges that telecom operators face is that of receiving control information from different base stations. The network packet brokers are generally not portable and therefore it is not convenient to carry them to different base stations. For telecom operators, having filtered information from the base station is important for troubleshooting. With Cubro Packetmaster EX2 Series, the telecom operators can easily get the filtered information required. EX2/EX2+ is the only portable field packet broker which offers full features of an NPB. EX2/EX2+ has six ports. The device supports 4 X 10/100/1000 Mbit and 2 X 1/10 Gbit ports (SFP SFP+). Each port can have an output and/or an input functionality.
