Packetmaster EX5-2

The EX5-2 Network Packet Broker offers high port density for copper-based networks, a comprehensive feature set, and the same intuitive management options found on all of Cubro’s Packetmaster line.

Copper-based networks using CAT5e, CAT6/6a, and CAT7 cabling are still extremely common today. While media buzz focuses on 100G and 400G deployments, a great deal of customer sites are focused on visibility requirements for their 10/100/1000 copper links. Featuring 48 copper ports and supporting thousands of filtering rules, the EX5-2 is ideal for deployment in these networks.

Features EX5-2

  • Traffic Aggregation + Replication
  • L2 - L4 Traffic Filtering
  • L2 - 4 Header Modification
  • VLAN Add/Remove/Modify
  • MPLS Tag Removal
  • Session-Aware Load Balancing
  • GRE Tunnel Endpoint
  • sFlow

The EX5-2 also offers 4 x 1/10G SFP+ interfaces. The EX5-2 shines in requirements where copper-based tools need access to fiber-based network infrastructure. Granular filtering options and the ability to support session-aware load balancing keep copper-based tools relevant even in networks where the infrastructure has moved to 10G speeds.

The EX5-2 is an excellent choice in network environments that are still heavily based on CAT5/5e/6/6a/7 cabling or where it is critical to get copper-based monitoring and security tools access to 1G and 10G fiber links.

  • 4 x 1/10G SFP+ Ports
  • 48 x 10/100/1000 Copper Ports
