The EX6 Network Packet Broker offers high port density for 10/100/1000 copper and fiber links, a comprehensive feature set, and the same intuitive management options found on all of Cubro’s Packetmaster line.
While media buzz focuses on 100G and 400G deployments, a great deal of customer sites simply need visibility and access to their 10/100/1000 links. The EX6, with a compelling list of features, is an excellent option for deployment in these environments.

The EX6 excels in mixed media environments where copper-based tools need access to fiber-based network infrastructure and vice versa. 48 SFP interfaces offer plenty of connectivity for all of your copper and fiber based tools as well as tapped network links.
The EX6 also offers 4 x 10G SFP+ interfaces. Granular filtering options and the ability to support session-aware load balancing keep slower tools relevant even in networks where the infrastructure has moved to 10G speeds.
The EX6 is also able to support legacy fiber standards in instances where there is a need to handle traffic such as 100BaseSX or 100Base-FX. The EX6 is an excellent option that helps bridge the gap between fiber and copper and between 10/100/1000 links and 10G.
