Network Taps

Overview

 Organizations require 100% visibility into network traffic to ensure peak performance and security. But the larger a network grows, the harder it becomes to monitor. Blind spots can easily compromise network quality. Traditional monitoring methods, such as port mirroring, can be costly and add layers of complexity. And some monitoring solutions negatively impact network availability. With networks growing faster than ever, now is the time for a high-performance, scalable monitoring solution. 

 

Regardless of interface or location in the network, we provide a tap solution, supporting copper, multimode and single mode fiber at speeds up to 100Gbps with media conversion models available. Fast and reliable, passive network taps provide access for security and network management devices on all types of networks.

  • Provide 100% visibility to link traffic for greater security and network monitoring tools
  • Offer in-line link failover protection
  • Ensure access-ready connectivity
  • Eliminate high costs associated with adding SPAN ports
  • Save valuable rack real estate with high-density solution
  • Deliver fully passive functionality so monitoring infrastructure does not impact network availability

  • SPAN Ports Disadvantage

    SPAN Ports Disadvantage Port mirroring is an approach to monitoring network traffic that involves forwarding a copy of each packet from one network switch port to another. Span Port (Port Mirroring) is not passive technology. Passivemeans “have no effect and impact”. Using of Span is easy and fast deployed, but has some huge impacts. It puts an increased load onto the switch that often increases CPU or memory requirements Span Ports are limited, there is no scalability Spanning or mirroring...

  • Bypass advantages

    Bypass Advantages Some Tools like IPS, Firewalls or other security tools are installed in-line in the network to intercept suspect traffic, but what happens if the inline tool loses power or gets overwhelmed by too much traffic? The network goes down or slows down, negatively impacting employee productivity and business profitability. An Bypass Switch protects your network against power losses and inline Tool slowdowns. It installs in-line in your network so the tool doesn´t have to, and it...
