Maipu Packet Broker Switch

Maipu T series packet broker products are developed to solve the demand of data refined collection and management. The packet broker is based on advanced multi-core and professional chip customization development technology. It integrates broker collection unit, data processing unit, management control unit, and data collection and processing functions, so as to meet all kinds of business applications in big data management and analysis environment.

The packet broker can perform high-density, high-speed data acquisition and management tasks, and provide the function of data flow refined management. The T series products support expanding up to 144*10GE interfaces, 36*40GE interfaces at most, and 12*100G interfaces, meeting various high-performance data collection and splitting requirements

Maipu is the first provider of overall solutions for packet splitting application and traffic management in China, providing users with cost-effective and selective expanded value-added solutions for network data splitting.

Product Features

    Rich data scheduling capability

    Maipu packet broker adopts leading chip and deep customized development, solving the bottleneck of traditional network image performance and the problem of insufficient data pre-processing function.

    The packet broker can realize the function of multi-point data source collection and multi-output duplication, and realize homology and homoclinic with flexible multi-factor hash load, ensuring the big data application scenarios, such as security audit, traffic backtracking, or business performance analysis.

    The data de-duplication function is to detect and filter the duplicate data, reduce the pressure of I/O performance of the analysis system, improve analysis performance and efficiency, release the storage space of duplicate data, avoid the additional cost of charging by traffic, and improve the speed and accuracy of the detection and audit of the security system.

    The data desensitization function supports the desensitization of privacy data and realizes the data security in the process of collection and analysis. The data truncation function is to cut and slice the specific data flow, release the storage resources and CPU resources of the analysis system, and improve the performance and efficiency of the analysis.

    In the multi-layer network, it can realize the source identification and time point identification of traffic, and provide the discrimination ability for the traffic types of multiple data sources, so as to enhance the management and scheduling ability of traffic.

    Flexible network deployment capability

    Maipu packet broker provides 1G, 10G, 40G, 100G and other speed interfaces to meet the link requirements in various data analysis scenarios. According to different performance and interface requirements, it has the single box and rack broker forms, and flexible modular port combination, which can meet the scheduling requirements of different bandwidths and speeds in multiple service environments, and can also be used to realize the management and deployment of the out-of-band data splitting network.

    In the standalone mode, support console, IP, SNMP, syslog, SSH and other management modes. In the multi-level networking mode, the packet broker inherits the virtual networking ability of Maipu, provides the distributed management architecture, realizes the management ability of "one network, one IP", and effectively improves the daily operation and maintenance efficiency.

    Industry-leading traffic matrix model

    Maipu flow splitting matrix scheme consists of broker hardware and NTD (network traffic Distribution) flow splitting management system. The distribution matrix is located in the middle layer between the network equipment and the monitoring and analysis system. The overall hardware architecture is divided into edge data collection area and centralized traffic processing area. Users can send different types of traffic to each related analysis system with the traffic mapping function according to business needs without changing the network configuration.

    NTD provides a single broker and matrix management mode through an intuitive and easy-to-use UI management interface, and realizes the flow collection, mapping and distribution through the web intuitive way, so as to improve the ability of network flow splitting and data analysis efficiency.


    NTD flow splitting service management view

    The NTD system provides a flexible and extensible traffic matrix scheme of the single-machine or multi-machine interconnection. The box-type single machine can split 55 copies of data to the analysis platform at most, while in the multi-machine interconnection matrix architecture, it can simultaneously support splitting to more than 300 data analysis platforms.
