Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) are the middleman that guarantees that monitoring and security appliances have a comprehensive view of network traffic and that those tools are operating at peak efficiency. Cubro NPBs incorporate features like traffic aggregation, traffic replication, filtering, load-balancing, header-modification and more. More advanced network packet brokers also support Deep packet inspection (DPI) which is an advanced monitoring technique and a useful application for telcos
A network TAP (Test Access Point), whether optical or electrical, is the foundation for providing network visibility and it is vital that it is highly reliable. A TAP is a hardware device, often passive, that creates a copy of network traffic for monitoring and analysis purposes. These network tools are installed into a live link in order to gain insight into the traffic moving across that link. Cubro has a wide range of fibre (optical) TAP and copper (electrical) TAP.
