Aster Packet Broker
Aster 620-618 are Microtel new series of packet brokers, which, once connected to the network devices, filter and direct to the monitoring tools only the traffic to be analyzed, improving network visibility and simplifying business and security controls.
Ports: Up to 16 (A-618) or 32 IN/OUT ports configurable for Input network access (traffic from in-line TAPs or mirror-ports) or Output monitoring. Optical ports can also be configured as input and output simultaneously A-618T model adds to the 16 IN/OUT ports 2 single optical TAP links integrated in the main chassis,
1/10 Gbps speed, Singlemode or multimode, fiber 50/50, 60/40, 70/30, 80/20, 90/10 split ratios
Hw based Filtering: Packet filter/classification (full wire speed) L2, L3, L4; VLAN and MPLS label filtering; packet accept/deny; packet forward/redirect/multicast “User defined bytes” filtering, supported on the first 128 bytes of the packet.
Selective Aggregation: Any-to-any
Load Balancing: This function enables the device to distribute the input traffic to the output ports in a balanced way, using Balancing Groups and a Session Oriented Hash Algorithm
“Security check” on Output monitoring ports: This function allows to apply, if required, a “security check” to each output port connected to a probe, so that, when detected the probe disconnection, these ports are automatically disabled generating a warning alarm. Next the disabled ports can be get enabled only with a system reconfiguration, so implementing a security policy aimed to avoid unauthorized intrusions in the network
Management:Embedded: GUI for Web management (HTTPS)
Multi-user access with defined privileges
Real Time and Daily Statistics: For each IN/OUT port: bandwidth, packet counter, packet size, Tx/Rx errors
Alarms: SNMP traps
