TAPs

VSS Monitoring TAPs provide persistent, 100% failsafe access for passive network monitoring, security, and forensics tools. When combined with VSS network packet brokers, TAPs become a non-intrusive bridge between the physical network and a visibility fabric. This tapping bridge enables scalable network visibility and performance, as well as management infrastructure upgrades, without network downtime and lost revenue.
