QSFP28 Port(s)
25G Ethernet Network 48 Port Packet Broker System PacketLion NX-PBPL-1L
PacketLion NX-PBPL-1L

8x 100G Ports

The PacketLion NX-PBPL-1L is a purpose-built network packet broker designed for use in top-of-rack applications and network perimeter use. The system can be used to optimize port utilization of existing infrastructure, or as a stand-alone device in L2-L4 filtering applications. To ensure seamless integration into your monitoring infrastructure, all PacketLions offer a full API interface using NETCONF.

There are no additional license fees per port and the device is compatible with MSA compliant SFP28 or QSFP28 pluggables / transceivers. Flexible port speeds (port splitting) for the 8 additional QSFP28 ports can be scaled according to network requirements (10G / 25G / 50G) and can be changed within the interface.

Technical Specifications

  • 48x 1G/10G/25G SFP28 ports and 8x 1G/10G/25G/40G/100G QSFP28 ports
