This is a truly universal unit because it supports all possible interfaces from copper Gbit to fibre 100 Gbit in a one U design. All ports are open and the user does not need to pay any additional fees to use all the ports.
All ports offer bidirectional function which provides more functionality with the existing ports and more flexibility for the same price. The unit comes with several bandwidth features at no additional cost; for instance, it is capable of packet slicing at in line rate while simultaneously performing the basic functions of a network packet broker.
