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 (copper taps, fiber taps, etc.) are failsafe for 100% guaranteed network uptime. Features such as network 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.
