Pluribus Network Packet Broker
Flexible, scalable network monitoring, security monitoring and visibility
Traditional or Virtualized Packet Broker
The Pluribus Network Packet Broker (NPB) is the industry’s most flexible and scalable solution for network monitoring, security monitoring and visibility.
The scale-out fabric architecture grows seamlessly from simple single-switch applications to multi-site, geographically distributed monitoring and network visibility fabrics and rapidly adapts to changing requirements and network conditions.
The Network Packet Broker solution can be deployed in a traditional out-of-band architecture, separate from the production network or as a virtualized service of the production network fabric. Either deployment model can deliver high-scale, highly flexible traffic aggregation, packet filtering, and replication.
All Pluribus NPB solutions are built on a foundation of the Pluribus Unified Cloud Fabric and open networking Ethernet switches, so they are inherently highly automated, resilient and cost-effective.
Pluribus NPB solutions include very cost-effective options for single-site, single-switch deployments, which can be scaled incrementally by adding switches while maintaining the simplicity of managing a single switch using a “virtual chassis” model.
The Pluribus Network Packet Broker solution provides a comprehensive feature set for a wide range of use cases, along with several unique advantages and benefits for network and security operations teams.

Advantages & Benefits
|✓ Fully modular, scale-out architecture with a “virtual chassis” operations model and no per port licensing||Easily scale port capacity, add switches and sites to match demand and minimize operational complexity|
|✓ End to end visibility and management of geographically distributed, multi-site network packet broker fabrics, including integrated telemetry||Simplify multi-site operations to lower opex, and enable easier tool sharing across sites to lower capex|
|✓ High resilience and sub-second failover on link or node failures||Ensure continuous network monitoring and security visibility|
|✓ Dynamic load balancing and path optimization||Use network capacity efficiently to drive lower capex|
With these comprehensive features and unique advantages, the Pluribus Network Packet Broker solution is an ideal choice for a wide range of monitoring and visibility use cases for both network operations and security operations teams.
