EXA64100

Advanced Network Packet Broker

The EXA64100 is a high-performance advanced network packet broker that aggregates, filters, duplicates, and load balances network traffic to security, monitoring and management tools. The EXA64100 is based on programmable switching fabric. It is based on an advanced multi-core, industry leading programmable switch chip architecture.

This platform allows all filtering features to be implemented at the hardware level for unmatched throughput and performance. The EXA64100 enables high-performance deep protocol identification and processing, and data message pre-processing at the chip forwarding logic level. The multi-layer filtering capabilities of the EXA64100 is a powerful feature of this device which enables enhanced network visibility and better network performance.

  • Applications / Solutions

    Deduplication by filtering in VXLAN overlay networks (VXLAN VNI and IP filtering)

    Duplicate packets increase the data bandwidth and thus force the monitoring tools dimensioning to be higher. Therefore, eliminating duplicate packets will improve monitoring performance and reduce costs. The EXA64100 allows filtering VXLAN VNI & IP inner / TCP&UDP inner at the same time without requiring loopback ports.

    State-of-the-art tunnel functionality

    The EXA64100 supports the termination of various tunnels such as:

    • ERSPAN II and III
    • GRE
    • MPLS over UDP and MPLS over GRE
    • GTP
    • VXLAN
    • IPinIP

    GRE De-encapsulation

    To transport filtered packets from site A to site B over a routed Layer 3 network, the EXA64100 supports a GRE encapsulation function.

    Application Note - GRE De-encapsulation

    GTP Load Balancing

    GTP user-plane load-balancing User-data interfaces in mobile networks such as S1-U are usually heavily loaded carrying up to Tbps of data. To make analysis possible these user-data needs to be spread across many analyzers and thus load-balancing is a key criteria. In order to keep the efforts for the analyzing/probing part as low as possible it is extremely important that user sessions stay together so that every packet of a user session arrives at the same analyzer interface.

    The Cubro EXA64100 distributes the packets based on a hash-key. The best choice for mobile user-data is that this hash-key is based on the inner IP address (=user IP) of the arriving packets. The EXA64100 handles inner IP load-balancing in hardware and supports Tbit/s of processing power.

    Application Note - G5 Load Balancing

    Web User Interface

    Similar to the other advanced network packet brokers, the EXA64100 features an extremely easy to use graphical way of operation. The innovative and logical WebUI allows the user to create a backup, setup new users, check port link status/statistics or define a powerful filtering scenario that will help to do the job quickly. Filters can also be created using Microsoft® Excel and uploaded to the EXA64100.
