Packetmaster as Patchfield
The Packetmaster EX can be used as intelligent patch field. This is feature is possible because the EX has no designated in and out port configuration. Each port is an input and an output at the same time.
The non-blocking concept is also relevant to use it as an intelligent patch field, full line rate is supported on any port.
The input and output ports of one patch, can have different media (example copper to fibre) and can also have different line speed, but you must consider that the data rate from input to output is matching. (example if you make a patch from 1 Gbit to 10 Gbit and vice versa, the maximum data rate on this patch is only 1 Gbit full duplex max”)
This application works with all EX Unit, if you need a solution with more ports look for the cross connect application
