Network Packet Broker

The AGG48600 series Network Packet Broker is a cutting edge solution when large numbers of 1/10/40/100G security and monitoring tools need access to 40G and 100G links. The AGG48600 is part of the Fifth Generation (G5) network packet brokers from Cubro. The architecture in these devices is a programmable switching fabric that offers unparalleled performance and throughput for extremely high-bandwidth installations.

The AGG48600 features 48 x 1 or 10G SFP/SFP+ and 6 x 40/100G QSFP interfaces. The G5 Packetmasters support breakout cables on the QSFP/QSFP28 ports to individual 4 x 10/25G providing an extensive and flexible level of connectivity.

The AGG48600 is ideal in environments where tools need access to links spanning bandwidth capabilities from 1G to 100G. QSFP ports capable of up to 100G speeds also provide the option to create a high-bandwidth backbone between Packet Brokers or backhaul to, and from, remote sites. The high port density, session-aware load balancing, and thousands of filtering rules at the users' disposal combine to make the AGG48600 a device that can support large amounts of monitoring and security appliances and the unique architecture of the device means that performance is never compromised regardless of complexity and features used.

  • Applications / Solutions

    Load Balancing

    The AGG48600 is connected inline to a 100 Gbit live link. The Packetmaster AGG48600 can load balance 100 Gbit traffic to several 1,10, 25, or 40 Gbit ports.


    The AGG48600 receives traffic from a 100G live link via the monitor ports of an inline TAP. The AGG48600 aggregates the Tx and the Rx sides of the duplex link to a single 100 Gbit port for monitoring purposes. The user can isolate only the traffic necessary to troubleshoot network problems due to the filtering abilities of the AGG48600.

    Monitoring and Trouble Shooting

    The Packetmaster AGG48600 supports 4000 filters that can classify traffic. These filters can be used to redirect a selected part of the traffic to a low bandwidth monitoring tool, such as a 1G/10G packet analyzer to troubleshoot an issue on a 100 Gbit link (such as a routing problem).
