Interface network traffic with a single device, no matter which interfaces are used
Aster A-648 at a glance
Aster A-648 Packet Broker provides a comprehensive Network Packet Brokering for all link speeds from 1 Gbps to 100 Gbps.
Designed with a 1U box, Aster A-648 provides 16×1/10/25G, 32×10/25G and 8×40/100G ports, so making possible to interface network traffic with a single device, no matter if 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 40Gbps or 100Gbps interfaces are used, and to aggregate, filter and load balance it towards the monitoring tools at different speeds.
A-648 implements Advanced Packet Manipulation (APM) functionalities, like Packet Slicing, Header Stripping and Tunnel Encapsulation/Decapsulation capabilities, to improve monitoring tools efficiency and send and get data to/from NFV infrastructure.
