A data centre is often over crowded. The main requirement of a data centre customer was to deploy a network packet broker that covered all interfaces, provided high density performance and saved rack space. Cubro’s EX484-3 was the perfect solution and provided end to end visibility without compromising on any of the other requirements. The Packetmaster has 72 ports in one U, which is an ideal solution to save rack space. The EX484-3 provides high density solutions to the growing network of the data centre. This product is designed to optimize performance and provides excellent value for the money.
