How cPacket is helping to keep overloaded hospital networks runningJennaBowden
All around the world cPacket are helping hospitals keep their networks running while under enormous strain by using cVu Network Packet Brokers to ensure maximum network visibility.

The industry’s number one packet broker+, cVu series is built on a distributed, scalable architecture to eliminate packet loss, so your tools see the full picture. With simple licensing, you get all the features, all the time, at zero additional cost.
Why cVu Is The Industry’s Number One Network Packet Broker:
Other Network Packet Brokers
Packets pass through several bottlenecks when using a mainstream network packet broker:
- Several lines of network taps feed a single switch – high rates of traffic will cause oversubscription and packets will be dropped
- Shared resources (CPUs/FPGAs etc) are used to process packets and again are prone to oversubscription and packet loss
cPacket cVu Network Packet Brokers
Smart Ingress and Egress ports allow packets to be processed at line rate – eliminating packet drops and giving full visibility:
- cPacket: Meters, Processes, Filters
- Reports on every packet
- Processes the packets
- Filters unneeded packets out before the funnel
Due to its distributed processing architecture with FPGA behind every smart-port, cVu can scale and process traffic at 100G line-rate through every port without any packet loss. This is the most common reason why many of our customers have switched from their expensive packet brokers due to their central processing bottleneck, licensing costs and packet drops.
