The EX4600 features several advanced technologies. It is an advanced system which can handle billions of packets up to OSI layer 4. The product is based on an advanced chip design combined with a high performance multi core host controller. Additionally, the OS (operating system) is a fully innovative design that runs on this multicore host controller. These features make the EX48600 a truly special appliance for monitoring applications.
The EX48600 is a non-blocking design - there is no over subscribed backplane. Any packet can be forwarded to any output at any time without any drop. The non-blocking design is more stable and produces no packet drops, even when working with high loads.
The Packetmaster EX48600 is a high performance network packet broker up to Layer 4 that aggregates, filters, duplicates, load balances network traffic to security, monitoring and management tools based on 8000 possible rules.
The Packetmaster EX48600 is based on newest and the most advanced ASIC available on the market. It is built with an advanced Cavium multi-core host controller and the biggest network buffer RAM in the industry. The manageable buffer size helps to overcome bursting issues in aggregation applications.
