Introducing the new ‘Bitwise Masking’ on Advanced NPBs

Product Update
From software version V2.0R18 onwards the Cubro G5 series of Advanced Packet Broker (EXA32100 and EXA48600) supports IPv6 with bitmask filtering. Up to now the G5 units supported already IPv6 “subnet” filtering via prefix. The new IPv6 bitmask filtering further enhances the filtering capabilities of the G5 units and allows to filter out dedicated IPv6 address ranges that are not possible via standard prefix filtering.

What “Next Generation Network Packet Broker” Means to Cubro

Next generation NPB for Cubro
With virtualized environments we have many more endpoints, often interconnected via complex tunnelling protocols, in a dynamic and rapidly changing topology. Cubro addresses this need in our Next Gen NPBs with support for numerous tunnelling protocols including MPLS, MPLS over UDP, GRE, NVGRE, VXLAN, and GTP. Support for these is not limited to merely stripping tunnel headers, rather, our Next Gen NPBs can also serve as tunnel endpoints and filter inside the tunnels while leaving the tunnel headers intact.

Cubro has further enhanced its flagship EXA32100 Advanced Packet Broker. With the latest software release, the EXA32100 is able to remove MPLS over UDP tunnels from incoming packets. Thus, users can continue using existing monitoring tools and traffic analysis systems that do not support MPLS over UDP in modern overlay network architectures.
