The EX48400 series Network Packet Broker is a cost-effective solution when large numbers of 1/10/40G security and monitoring tools need access to 40G and 100G links. It also offers expanded features over the previous Packetmasters such as packet slicing and user-defined filters.
The EX48400 features 48 x 1 or 10G SFP+, 4 x 40G QSFP, and 2 x 40/100G interfaces offering exceptional connectivity and features in a device that is sure to maximize your ROI. Like all Packetmasters, the 6 QSFP ports also support breakout cables to individual 4 x 1/10G connections bringing the 1/10G link capacity up to a possible 72 x 1/10G interfaces.
The EX48400 is ideal in environments where tools need access to links spanning bandwidth capabilities from 1G to 100G. 40G and 100G ports also offer the possibility 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 tens of thousands of filtering rules at the users disposal combine to make the EX48400 a device which can support large amounts of monitoring and security appliances or grow with an organization as they transition into 40G and 100G infrastructure.
