Fiberblaze/Silicom Denmark FBC4G

Fiberblaze 4x 1GbE SFP Capture Card, based on Xilinx Virtex6, 4GB DDR3, PCIe Gen 2 x8, full height, half length

SKU: FBC4G Categories: , Tag:

The Fiberblaze fbC4G Card performs at line rate with zero packet loss. It allows for pure data capture as well as
inline applications. It is a high performance OEM hardware platform intended for 4 x 1Gbit network connectivity
with quad port SFP interfaces.
The 1 GE is still the most widespread interface in networks today, and the fbC4G offers direct and unhindered
visibility interface into the traffic carried in these networks. Utilizing the power of FPGAs, the traffic can easily be
controlled and processed to provide the insight required of a wide range of applications.
