fbC4XGg3 Capture Card

Quad Port SFP+ 10 Gigabit PCI Express Capture Card

The Silicom Denamrk fbC4XGG3 is a 4x10GE capture card that performs at full line rate with zero packet loss, on all four interfaces. Even while providing the full suite of features offered via fbCAPTURE API.

With its PCIe Gen3 support, it is without bottlenecks, and is ideal for interfacing to multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet links. This can be as individual links or in a load-sharing or redundancy configuration, directly from network taps, via SPAN ports or similar devices.

 

It is a high performance OEM hardware platform with four SFP+ ports, allowing for optimal flexibility in connectivity. The card allows utilization of the transmission capabilities of these in conjunction with fbCAPTURE features.

The fbC4XGG3 is part of the fbCAPTURE family which provides a powerful and flexible Software API, as well as standard libpcap integration. Through the integration of fbCAPTURE API, applications gain support for all fbCAPTURE cards, covering Ethernet speeds from 1GE to 100GE.
