Optical nTAPs
 
Use optical nTAPs to send identical copies of critical traffic to network analyzers, remote monitoring appliances, forensics tools, and similar devices capable of supporting dual, non-aggregated data streams.
 
 
Optical nTAP
 
 
Key features of the Optical TAP include:
No AC power required
Passive access without packet tampering or introducing a single point of failure
All traffic (including errors) is passed from all OSI layers for analyzing
Enhanced security because the nTAP does not require or use an IP address, making it undetectable compared to a SPAN
Allows you to connect and disconnect the analysis device as needed without taking the network down
Fully IEEE 802.3 compliant
Fully RoHS compliant
Front-mounted connectors make installation simple
Optional 19-inch 1U rack mount panel holds up to three nTAP
 
 
40 Gb Multimode Optical TAP
 
 
Key features of the 40 Gb Multimode Optical TAP include:
No AC power required
Passive access without packet tampering or introducing a single point of failure
All traffic (including errors) is passed from all OSI layers for analyzing
Enhanced security because the nTAP does not require or use an IP address, making it undetectable compared to a SPAN
Allows you to connect and disconnect the analysis device as needed without taking the network down
Fully IEEE 802.3 compliant
Fully RoHS compliant
Front-mounted connectors make installation simple
Optional 19-inch 1U rack mount panel holds up to three nTAPs
 
 
High Density Optical TAP
 
 
Key features of the High Density Optical TAP include:
No AC power required
Passive access without packet tampering or introducing a single point of failure
All traffic (including errors) is passed from all OSI layers for analyzing
Enhanced security because the nTAP does not require or use an IP address, making it undetectable compared to a SPAN
Allows you to connect and disconnect the analysis device as needed without taking the network down
Fully IEEE 802.3 compliant
Fully RoHS compliant
Rear-mounted magnet simplifies installation into the chassis
Optional 19-inch 1U chassis holds up to 24 nTAP modules
The chassis is a container to hold any mixture of TAP modules you wish. A magnet at the back of the chassis holds each TAP in place.
Each TAP is wholly self-contained and has nothing to do with its neighbor.
You may mix-and-match any speeds you wish. For example, 12 1 Gb TAPs, 7 10 Gb TAPs, and 5 40 Gb TAPs.
