Protocol Stripping

Preventing Packet Loss

Often visibility into network traffic requires that various Layer 2 protocol headers (e.g. VLAN, MPLS, GRE, VXLAN, NVGRE, GENEVE etc.) are removed from network traffic before it is sent to analysis, monitoring, or security tools. The reason for this is often that some or all tools can simply not decode or interpret traffic encapsulated inside of said protocol.

Protocol Stripping Solution

All Cubro Network Packet Brokers support the ability to strip protocol headers, to varying degrees, from network traffic. All EX Packetmaster NPBs support the ability to strip VLAN tags and MPLS labels from traffic and can additionally function as GRE endpoints serving to both create and terminate GRE tunnels. Beside these Cubro Packetmasters and Sessionmasters also support de-encapsulation of:

  • GTP
  • PPPoe
  • Mac in Mac
  • MPLSoverUDP
  • MPLSoverGRE
  • Cisco Fabric Path
  • IPinIP

Cubro Packetmaster and Sessionmaster products are the perfect choices to get access to DNS traffic – regardless of whether traffic is IPv4, IPv6, or encapsulated within VXLAN, GRE or GTP tunnels.
