OBSERVER TAPS

Provide important devices with the visibility they need

Observer Taps

nTAPs are passive, full-duplex devices, offering complete visibility to monitoring devices regardless of traffic level. They work with the leading management tools for quick and easy deployment. nTAPs are transparent for monitoring critical links, and provide continuous network data flow even if power fails. nTAPs are scalable, modularized, space efficient, and economical.

Transfer network traffic from a full-duplex copper link to a copper analysis or security device in a single stream.

Install Observer Aggregator nTAPs on 10 Mb, 100 Mb, or 1 Gb links for quick, anytime access to network traffic. Designed for low-to-moderate utilisation full-duplex links, Aggregator nTAPs merge data into single streams for transmission up to two single-receive analysis devices. Industry-leading buffer sizes offer less likelihood of lost packets than SPAN ports to ensure critical traffic reaches analysers, remote monitoring appliances, and forensics tools. For networks and analysers of different topologies, an Observer Conversion Aggregator nTAP is available.

10/100/1000 Aggregator nTAP

Copy full-duplex traffic and aggregates the traffic into a single stream to any analysis or security device with a single-receive capture interface.

VIAVI Aggregator Conversion Tap

10/100/1000 Aggregator Conversion nTAP

Aggregate full-duplex traffic but also convert that traffic to be analyzed by a copper or optical single-receive analysis or security device.

VIAVI Optical to Copper Conversion Aggregator Tap

Optical to Copper Aggregator Conversion nTAP

Copy traffic from one full-duplex optical link to one copper monitoring device.

Copy traffic from a full-duplex copper link and send it to a copper or optical monitoring device – also available with aggregation functionality.

Install Observer Conversion nTAPs on 10 Mb, 100 Mb, or 1 Gb links for quick, anytime access to network traffic. When analysers and similar monitoring devices communicate over different topologies than the network, Optical-to-Copper or Copper-to-Optical nTAPs bridge the gap. Conversion nTAPs make copies of network data, sending one back to the network and the other out for analysis.

For single-receive devices, Observer Aggregator Conversion nTAPs merge full-duplex links into single streams for transmission to up to two single-receive analysis devices. Industry-leading buffer sizes offer less likelihood of lost packets than SPAN ports to ensure critical traffic reaches analysers, remote monitoring appliances, and forensics tools.
