PacketLion 4L - 40-Port_QSFP - Network Packet Broker
PacketLion NX-PBPL-4L

40x 40Gbps/100Gbps
80x 10Gbps/25Gbps

The PacketLion NX-PBPL-4L is a purpose-built Network Packet Broker designed for use in data centres and network perimeter applications.

The system can be used to optimise the port usage of existing infrastructure or as a standalone device in L2-L4 filtering applications. To ensure seamless integration into your monitoring infrastructure, all PacketLions offer a full API interface via NETCONF.

There are no additional licence fees per port and the device is compatible with MSA compliant QSFP28 pluggables / transceivers. Flexible port speeds (port splitting) can be scaled according to network requirements (10G / 25G / 40G) and changed within the interface.
