Cubro announces packet slicing option with CRC recalculation on multiple 100 Gbit traffic per unit. The EXA32100 is the only multiple 100 Gbit Network Packet Broker which supports packet slicing in-line rate on all 100 Gbit interfaces. There are three options for slicing – 64, 128 and 256 bytes. This feature can be configured on an output port, and it supports dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6.
The significant advantage of packet slicing in such performance is to get the maximum out of your monitoring tools. This application reduces the load to a factor 10 which implies that a 100 Gbit tool can handle 1 TB traffic. Another benefit is that this is done in the silicon and not on an attached CPU because this is deterministic and prevents jitter and packet drop.
Packet slicing means to cut off the payload of an Ethernet packet for monitoring purpose; the reason could save bandwidth and capture space on the disc. The other reason is security; to protect customer payload to be monitored if not necessary.
Reduce monitoring cost and increase tool efficiency with Cubro EXA32100 and EXA48600. We provide the best value product to fit your need.
