SDN-based Packet Broker Functionality
THE AGILITY OF SOFTWARE AT SILICON SPEED
- Traffic Aggregators and Network Packet Brokers are key components of monitoring and visibility toolsets. CyberMapper Aggregator is a next generation solution for users looking to upgrade their traffic aggregator function to handle multiple terabits of throughput. CyberMapper Aggregator is a cost-effective traffic aggregator with up to 6.4Tbps of throughput supporting interface speeds of 10G to 100G for maximum compatibility with existing network infrastructure, providing customers a flexible SDN-based Packet Broker solution to get the right traffic from the network to the right network analysis tools at line rate.
CyberMapper Aggregator with FlowAgent Pipeline
At the heart of the traffic aggregator is the FlowAgent pipeline which features fine grain control of setting up the streams of interest. With four separate stages, FlowAgent lets you create streams of interest that can be virtually wired into multiple stream aggregates.
At the end of the FlowAgent pipeline is the “toolsets” agent which allows you to output to a single port, mirror to multiple ports or load balance across multiple visibility/security tools. Since not every tool can handle the same volume of traffic, weighted load balancing lets you specify the volume of traffic to be load balanced across each device.
The power of programmable silicon in a white-box switch
CyberMapper Aggregator is built on Tofino, the latest switching silicon from Intel. Tofino offers up to 6.4Tbps of core throughput and interfaces from 256 ports of 10G up to 64 ports of 100G. The hardware can be sourced directly with Edgecore or bundled with NoviFlow’s software. Flexible licensing options are available for CyberMapper Aggregator including perpetual licenses and annual subscriptions.
