Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Features

  • Tap splits the full-duplex signal in 50/50 ratios from the network into two signals.
  • Monitor network traffic at up to 10 Gbps, troubleshoot problems, and run test equipment with no interruption in data flow.
  • Details

  • Get an accurate view of your fiber optic network.
  • Connect and disconnect monitoring devices without disruption.
  • Leave taps in permanently without degrading network performance.
  • Provides a complete copy of data from full-duplex network links.
  • Operates transparently and doesn't block error packets.
  • Regenerates incoming data before transmission.
  • Passes on traffic from all network layers.
  • Monitors both sides of a full-duplex connection.
  • Works seamlessly with network analyzers, monitors, and testers.
  • The tap is transmit-only so attached monitoring devices are invisible to the network.
  • Portable plug-in, plug-out design with no power source required.
  • Features LC connectors.

    Get a complete view of the traffic on your 10-Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic network without any disruption or downtime. With the Single-Channel 10-GB Optical Tap, you can keep data flowing and users working while you get on with your work. Set it up and monitor network traffic, troubleshoot problems, and run test equipment with no interruption in data flow. Because you can leave the tap inserted permanently without interfering with network operation and minimizing points of failure, you can easily connect and disconnect different devices. Use the tap with network and protocol analyzers, security monitoring devices, remote monitoring applications, RMON probes, and more.

    Use the tap on either side of the full-duplex link under test and a standard full-duplex analyzer connection. It copies traffic from one optical link for one optical monitoring device.

    The Tap has LC connectors and splits the full-duplex signal in 50/50 ratios from the network into two signals. One is sent back to your network and the other is sent to your monitoring device (a dual-receive capture card is required).

    You can use the tap anywhere, or mount up to three in a standard 19" rack. Just order the Rackmount Bracket (TS253).
