The TAP Series
Accesses traffic from full-duplex networks, making them available for network intelligence tools and are the foundation for Network Intelligence Optimization system building. All VSS' TAP Series products are failsafe for 100% guaranteed network uptime. Features such as aggregation, replication, regeneration, and L2-L4 filters provide a wide range of options for accessing Ethernet networks.
Secure: Without an IP address, TAPs have no presence on the network which safeguards users' security and performance monitoring tools.
High Performance: Full line rate throughput, all layer 1 and 2 functionality, and low latency throughput to monitor output guarantee full visibility at line speeds.
Reliable: Redundant power supplies and fast failover ensure your network never goes down.
Scalable: Work independently or in conjunction with each other and any VSS Monitoring device as part of the VSS Monitoring Network Intelligence Optimization layer.
