TAPs can be a far better way to monitor the multitude of data that travels across your network every second. Amphenol Telect launched a passive monitoring platform that will change the way you think about network security and cable management.
We're entering the passive monitoring market with a test access point (TAP) module that fits into both our high-density C2LINX optical distribution chassis and our hexLINX platform, a streamlined bulkhead solution.
Network monitoring is becoming increasingly vital in our always-connected world. As we're boosting our fiber runs to increase bandwidth capacity and lower latency rates, we're adding risk to signal performance and security.
Trouble is, every device we add to the network drags down latency and increases our risk of network outage. Those are the serious problems you can encounter by opting for SPAN ports.
Switched port analyzer (SPAN) ports have done us well in lower-density environments. SPAN ports make a mirrored copy the data on your network, making a copy of the packets travelling from one port to another.
But they fall down in some areas, sometimes creating duplicate packets, capturing incorrect data or missing data altogether.
TAPs, on the other hand, pass traffic from the live network to the monitoring devices, providing a demarcation between the two points. They pass all the traffic between the two points, never disrupting that connection.
TAPs are non-intrusive, undetectable on the network and pass through traffic if the TAP device fails. They:
How else do TAPs beat SPAN ports on network monitoring? Let's let Product Manager Peter Adams tell you more:
