Multi-purpose TAP for Aggregation, Breakout, and SPAN/Regeneration

The USR Gigabit Ethernet Aggregation TAP eliminates SPAN port contention, oversubscription, and configuration errors with 3 different modes, simple installation, and reliable access to your Gigabit Ethernet segments. In aggregation mode this TAP faultlessly combines and processes both the TX and RX streams of data into a single data stream. Improve visibility with two monitor ports sending identical copies of full-duplex data to separate network tools (analyzer, IDS, probe) for simultaneous monitoring and analyzing. For dual-receive tools, breakout mode is available for individual TX and RX streams. SPAN/Regenerate mode transmits 3 copies of incoming traffic for up to 3 tools. Ideal for security applications, including link failure propagation for HA designed networks, or anywhere you need non-intrusive dedicated access to your network links for advanced or consolidated monitoring.

Monitoring & Analysis

  • Aggregation mode allows monitoring full-duplex traffic, even with single interface monitoring tools
  • Breakout mode allows monitoring full-duplex traffic with RX and TX streams on separate monitoring ports
  • SPAN/Regeneration mode sends copies to multiple tools to provide access to the same links for system redundancy, testing and advanced monitoring applications
  • Improved visibility into the network - including VLAN tags
  • Ideal for Intrusion Detection System (IDS) applications

Aggregating Data

  • Monitor all network traffic from two different sources
  • Improve network troubleshooting by viewing both sides of a full duplex conversation
  • Combine both directions of a full duplex data stream in a single trace file
  • Allows flexibility of monitoring devices, including the option to revert to traditional full duplex dual channel data capture, utilizing single NIC probes for advanced monitoring or hardware reduction

Network Stability

  • Fault-tolerant
  • Ideal for 24x7 permanent access - Deploy tools or utilize tap ports immediately without network traffic interruptions or the need for maintenance windows
  • Eliminate SPAN port contention, oversubscription, and configuration errors
  • Improve overall switch performance by removing port mirror degradation while freeing valuable ports
  • Link Failure propagation for High Availability designed networks ensures instant switch to the secondary link to maintain 100% uptime

Security

  • Unidirectional and invisible to other devices on the network making it impossible to access or infiltrate connected monitoring and analysis tools

Simple installation

  • Plug and play means simple and fast deployments
  • Auto negotiates settings for 10/100/1000 Mbps network speeds
  • Auto-MDI/MDI-X
  • Easy configuration with simple DIP switches
  • Single network break for permanent installation
  • Convenient mounting tabs for use with the optional 1U rackmount kit for up to 4 devices

Reliability

  • Failsafe inline design allows network connectivity in the event of a power failure
