Products > Aggregation Taps

Net Optics Aggregator Taps offer total access to full-duplex links with only one NIC or network port. Aggregation Taps are basically subdivided into two groups - Port Aggregation Taps and Link Aggregation Taps:
Port Aggregator Topology
  • Port Aggregation Taps are aggregating the RX- and TX traffic of one network link to one monitoring port. Therefore it is possible to analyze the Full Duplex network traffic on one single interface. After aggregating the TX - and RX traffic to one single port, the aggregated traffic is regenerated to a second monitoring port, providing the possibility to have a second monitoring tool to analyze the Full Duplex traffic with also just one NIC.

  • Link Aggregators allow the monitoring of multiple network segments with one or several monitoring appliances. These Taps are aggregating the traffic of up to 12 Full Duplex connections into one single interface After aggregation, the traffic is regenerated to up to 24 monitoring Ports . One big advantage of this solution is that the connected monitoring system only needs one NIC to monitor all 12 connections at the same time. Link Aggregation Taps are perfectly designed for the analysis of asymmetric network traffic and redundant routes with dynamic network protocols.

iTap 2 Port Aggregator
I2PA-CU3

I2PA-CU3
Net Optics iTap 2 Port Aggregator is an intelligent tapping appliance that provides full duplex traffic streams to monitoring tools.

Net Optics iTap 2 Port Aggregator is an intelligent tapping appliance that provides full duplex traffic streams to monitoring tools. The iTap 2 Port Aggregator can monitor two SPAN ports or one inline link and provides up to two tools with full duplex traffic. The iTap 2 Port Aggregator augments network-monitoring capability through the use of an easy to use Web UI, detailed counter statistics, SNMP traps, and field upgradable software.

Aggregation and Tap Mode
The Port Aggregator combines and regenerates both directions of a full-duplex link, sending all aggregated traffic out to two separate monitoring ports. Typically, full-duplex monitoring with a network tap requires two Network Interface Cards (NICs) with one interface for each side of the full-duplex link. The use of a Net Optics Port Aggregator enables one or two devices to simultaneously monitor both sides of a full-duplex link. When traffic levels exceed the capacity of the receiving NIC, the Port Aggregator stores the overflow traffic into the buffer memory. The buffers clear automatically when the traffic volume falls below the receiving capacity of the NIC.

When the aggregated traffic exceeds 100% of the monitoring device bandwidth, the iTap 2 Port Aggregator prevents having to switch out the Port Aggregator or re-route traffic to other tools by allowing the user to set the device into Tap Mode. In Tap Mode the Port Aggregator will function like a standard tap with half duplex monitoring, traffic from the network Port A and the network Port B are routed to monitor Port 1 and monitor Port 2 respectively. When the aggregated traffic no longer exceeds the monitoring device bandwidth the Port Aggregator can be set back to resume full duplex aggregation mode, using any of the management interfaces.

Packet Ordering and Timestamping
During the process of aggregating the traffic across a full duplex link it is not possible to discern the order in which the packets were received by the monitoring tool. Packet ordering is a configurable option that allows the user to configure the Port Aggregator to arrange the packets in the order that they were received, First In First Out (FIFO).

Timestamping, when enabled, replaces the CRC bytes of each packet in the monitoring data stream with an 8-nanosecond resolution timestamp. The timestamp provides the time relative to the time on the iTap 2 Port Aggregator and indicates which network port the packet was received in on. Enabling Packet Ordering and timestamping ensures that your monitoring tools see the packets in the time sequence that they arrived at the Port Aggregator´s network ports, eliminating false protocol violations.

Management Security and Flexibility
The iTap 2 Port Aggregator provides many security features that meet current security standards and requirements. Remote management security is ensured with Role Based User Access (RBAC), 1024bit SSL encryption (for HTTPS and SSHv2), IP Access List, and SNMPv2 / SNMPv3. The iTap 2 Port Aggregator can be managed remotely via the Web UI, SNMP management platforms, and SSH or locally via the serial console. All network statistics and settings can be modified in any of the management mediums.

Indigo Pro Support and Pro Push
The iTap 2 Port Aggregator is fully integrated with the Net Optics´ Indigo Management Platform, a centralized management system for Net Optics solutions. Indigo´s easy-to-use graphical user interface makes configuring and monitoring, of large deployments of, iTap 2 Port Aggregator simple, secure and easily manageable.

Each iTap 2 Port Aggregator comes with the Pro Push capabilities, which provides the ability to push Remote Monitoring (RMON) traffic statistics to network management systems. This enables the iTap 2 Port Aggregator to provide greater visibility into the network while simplifying your deployment options.

Aggregate all traffic from multiple gigabit links for flexible monitoring coverage.

Net Optics iLink Agg is a 1G link aggregator that combines traffic from multiple network links or Span ports into one single interface and sends it to monitoring tools across the network. After aggregation, the traffic is regenerated to up to 24 monitoring ports. With up to 24 ports in a 1U form-factor, iLink Agg enables a pool of up to 8 monitoring appliances to be connected to as many as 8 network links using integrated in-line Taps, plus as many as 8 Span ports. This helps eliminating resource contention by enabling up to eight devices to monitor identical traffic at the same time and Improves monitoring flexibility with fully configurable port mappings.

An additional big advantage of the iLink Agg is that the connected monitoring system needs only one network interface controller (NIC) to monitor all 12 connections at the same time. The iLink Agg is perfectly designed for the analysis of asymmetric network traffic and redundant routes with dynamic network protocols.

Aggregation, Regeneration and Port Mapping
The iLink Agg supports fully configurable port mapping, enabling aggregation, regeneration, and matrix switching in a single device. Any-to-any and many-to-many port mappings are supported, and any port can be used as an input, an output, or both at the same time.

Ease of Use
The iLink Agg can be managed locally or remotely through a command line interface (CLI), Web UI and SNMP v3. TACACS+ and RADIUS perform authentication and authorization. RMON traffic statistics are available through the management interface as well as remote software updates.

Zero Dropped Packets
The iLink Agg scans incoming traffic from the network ports on a first-in-first-out basis. The scan rate is optimized to ensure that no packets are dropped, as long as the sum of data rates on the network ports does not exceed the monitoring port capacity of 1 Gbps.

Flexibility
Net Optics iLink Agg provides connectivity to network links, Span ports, and monitoring tools with different fiber and copper media types. You can populate only those ports you need or provision extra ports to ensure uptime and port availability.

Secure Monitoring
The iLink Agg has no IP address on the network, so it is immune to viruses or other attacks. The addressable management port is totally isolated from the network data path, and can be connected to a dedicated management subnet for increased security.

Compatibility
The iLinkAgg is compatible with all Net Optics Taps and bypass switches, as well as with all major manufacturers´ monitoring devices, including protocol analyzers, probes, firewalls, and intrusion detection/prevention systems.

10 Gigabit Port Aggregator iTap
IPA-50SR5-XFP, IPA-LR5-XFP

IPA-50SR5-XFP, IPA-LR5-XFP
The industry’s only real-time full-duplex aggregated traffic monitoring for 10 GigaBit networks to 10 GigaBit monitoring tools and appliances. Capture the traffic from a full-duplex link to two tools using only one NIC in each device.

The iTap 10 GigaBit Port Aggregator is Net Optics™ most flexible network monitoring Tap for 10 GigaBit networks. As more traffic converges onto higher speed network links, the need to maintain application, performance, and security standards has never been greater. Fortunately, capturing the data needed to keep a network running has never been easier, with this device’s combination of network interfaces supported, XFP choices for monitor ports, easy-to-use management functionality, and new filtering options.

Aggregation Flexibility
The iTap 10GigaBit Port Aggregator combines and regenerates both directions of a full-duplex stream, sending aggregated traffic out one or two separate monitoring ports. Typically, full-duplex monitoring would require two NICs (or a dual-channel NIC) in the monitoring tool - one interface for each side of the full-duplex link. Aggregation allows one or two tools to simultaneously monitor a link using only one NIC per tool.

Redundant tools and appliances are now easily attached to the link to monitor data, voice, and video traffic when needed. If a monitoring resource is required elsewhere in the network, at least one tool or appliance is always available to monitor vital traffic. Or, two different types of tools can monitor the same link simultaneously, enabling different groups to obtain the data they need without contention.

Information Intelligence
The iTap functionality provides displays in GUI form and on the front panel to view link utilization levels in real time. See the size and time of the last peak, when thresholds are exceeded, and more. A 10/100 management port interface enables remote management and monitoring from anywhere in the network, giving you the information you need to quickly respond to network events.

Indigo Management Software
Net Optics Web Manager and System Manager let you remotely set parameters, view status information, and monitor traffic statistical data. These interfaces provide security and performance information such as the number of oversized packets and CRC errors. Remotely set alarm thresholds, clear traffic data counters, and turn on or off a Monitor Port.

Web Manager

 - a browser-based interface that lets you change settings, view status, and retrieve data remotely with simple-to-use controls. View all configuration, status, and traffic data from a single page. Changes to the configuration can be made with a few clicks of the mouse.

System Manager

 - an SNMP management platform that offers centralized control of all Net Optics iTap devices in the network, to manage your entire monitoring access platform. As with Web Manager, you can view all status, configuration, and traffic information and make changes quickly to any iTap in the system. Each iTap can also be assigned to groups that identify workgroup, location, or organizational naming criteria. View SNMP trap information for system, thresholds, link, and power status. And, take advantage of easy-to-use reporting tools to baseline network behavior and share with upper management and colleagues. Existing industry standard SNMP management platforms can also be fully integrated using Net Optics Management Information Base (MIB).

Security - Optional functionality lets users configure the Port Aggregator so it will not display data on the LCD, and to disable the Management Port, thus preventing it from being accessed from the network. The Monitor Ports can also be turned off to prevent unauthorized access to the network link.

Enhanced Traffic Monitoring
An optional timestamping function appends a 32-bit timestamp to each packet sent to the monitor ports. This feature provides valuable information for tools that can process timestamp data to analyze detailed network timing. The timestamp includes a bit that indicates which network port the packet originated from.

An optional packet slicing function copies only the first N bytes of each packet to the monitor ports, for monitoring applications that only need to see header or front-of-packet information. Use of this feature can substantially reduce bandwidth on the monitor ports so even high rates of full-duplex traffic won’t exceed the monitor port or tool capacity. Packet slicing is also useful for applications such as lawful intercept where the monitor tool may be legally prohibited from seeing packet payload data.

Additional options for conditioning the data copied to the monitor ports includes the ability to drop packets with CRC errors, to regenerate good CRC check bytes, and to restrict the maximum packet size to an amount set by the user.

Reliability
Because of the amount of traffic and business dependency on today’s networks it is important that 100 percent of the data that crosses a link, even layer 1 and 2 errors, is captured. When Span ports, hubs, or installing a tool or appliance in-line are not options, an in-line Tap provides the right alternative for compliance, forensics, and network and applications trouble-shooting.

In the event the monitoring tool or Tap exhibits a power outage, the Net Optics hardware-based Fast Path function ensures that traffic across the link is not interrupted. Traffic to the monitor ports is stopped, but quickly re-established once power returns.

Redundant power connections in the Tap provide unsurpassed uptime protection.

Out of the Box Installation
Getting started is a snap with Net Optics. All necessary network and monitoring cables for plug-and-play deployment are included with the Tap. Everything you need, right out of the box.

TPA-CU
10/100Base-T to 10/100/1000Base-T Network Port Aggregator Tap
TPA-CU

TPA-CU TPA-CU
Real-time, simultaneous passive monitoring of a single full-duplex link with two devices - using only one NIC per device.

Net Optics 10/100 to 10/100/1000 Dual Port Aggregator Taps provide ultra-efficient access to critical links. This pioneering technology enables any two devices to simultaneously monitor a full-duplex link - using only one NIC per device.

Typically, full-duplex monitoring with a network tap requires two NICs (or a dual channel NIC) one interface for each side of the tapped full-duplex connection. The Dual Port Aggregator Tap combines and regenerates these streams, sending all aggregated data out two separate passive monitoring ports. The best part of this innovation is the onboard memory to make sure traffic isn’t dropped during bursts.

Buffering Prevents Lost Data
The Dual Port Aggregator Tap is designed to handle the combined traffic of a single full-duplex link. Normally, the traffic should be below the receiving capacity of the NIC, that is, less than 10,100 or 1000 Mbps.

When the traffic queue exceeds the capacity of the NIC, the Tap buffers the overflow of up to 512 megabytes per side of the full-duplex connection. For your convenience, the buffers clear automatically when the traffic volume falls below the receiving capacity of the NIC. For example, if there is a traffic burst and a tap connected to a 100 Mbps network port on a monitoring device is now receiving 140 Mbps of traffic, the Tap buffers data until the burst is over. The Tap then sends the buffered data to the monitoring device until the buffer is cleared.

Simple to Deploy
Net Optic Dual Port Aggregator Tap is a simple plug-and-play solution addressing the fact that many monitoring systems, including most software based solutions, only offer a single channel NIC, limiting full-duplex visibility. While adding a second NIC can help maintain data integrity and visibility, there is a trade-off in flexibility and ease-of-use. An operating system and NICs that enable binding are often required to achieve the same functionality and the Dual Port Aggregator Tap. In contrast, the Dual Port Aggregator Tap requires no additional components or configuration on the monitoring devices.

Better than Span Ports
In the past, span ports were occasionally used to aggregate tapped traffic. However, in addition to other shortcomings of span port monitoring, span ports support very limited buffering and can simply drop data during bursts. The generous buffers of the Dual Port Aggregator Tap prevent data loss in these conditions.

Zero Delay™ - A Net Optics Breakthrough
Highly sensitive network locations can improve monitoring performance via the innovative features of Net Optics Taps. If power is lost to other 10/100 Taps, the connected devices may introduce delays as they detect the power loss and try to re-establish their link.

Net Optics’ pioneering design ensures that any loss of power to the Tap is transparent to the network, and does not affect the flow of traffic through the Tap eliminating packet delay and loss as potential security issues.

Security and Visibility
Without an IP address, monitoring devices are isolated from the network, dramatically reducing their exposure to attacks. However, the monitoring device connected to the Tap still sees all full-duplex traffic as if it were in-line, including Layer 1 and Layer 2 errors.

Simply Plug It In
Full-duplex monitoring to a single NIC is a snap with the Aggregator Tap. All network and monitoring cables necessary for plug-and-play deployment are included with the Tap. Everything you need, right out of the box.

Reliability
For extra uptime protection, Net Optics Taps offer redundant power connections. Should the primary power source fail, the Tap automatically switches to the backup power source. Power LEDs on the front of the Tap indicate the current power source even if power is lost and reapplied, there is always zero delay to network traffic.

Dual 10/100/1000Base-T Port Aggregator iTap
IPA-CU3, IPA-SCU3, IPA-CU3-AR

IPA-CU3, IPA-SCU3, IPA-CU3-AR
An Intelligent Copper Port Aggregator that provides real-time monitoring capability for one full-duplex link or two Span links at 10Mbps, 100Mbps, or 1Gbps speeds. The iTap Port Aggregator provides critical event alarms, link utilization and traffic statistics through the local and remote interfaces.

The iTap 10/100/1000 Port Aggregator is Net Optics most Intelligent Tap making network monitoring easier than ever. The iTap Port Aggregator displays the link utilization levels for both directions in real time, with the size and time of the last peak, right on the front panel. It is accessible from remote interfaces that provide information and control from anywhere in the network. iTap gives you the information and the passive access point you need to respond quickly to network events.

Performance Aggregation
The iTap 10/100/1000 Port Aggregator combines and regenerates both directions of a full-duplex stream or Span ports, sending all aggregated traffic out one or two separate passive monitoring ports. Typically, full-duplex monitoring with a network tap requires two NICs (or a dual-channel NIC) for each of the network ports, respectively. The iTap Port Aggregator enables one or two devices to simultaneously monitor a full-duplex link or two Span ports using only one NIC per device.

Buffers Absorb Bursts
When the traffic levels exceed the capacity of the receiving NIC, the iTap Port Aggregator stores the overflow traffic in buffer memory. For high-load links, the iTap Port Aggregator is available with 1GB of memory. The buffers clear automatically when the traffic volume falls below the receiving capacity of the NIC. These buffers allow the iTap Port Aggregator to absorb traffic bursts without dropping packets.

Traffic Monitoring
The iTap Port Aggregator monitors the utilization levels of both sides of the full-duplex link or Span connections. This information is displayed on the front panel and is available from the remote interfaces. The iTap Port Aggregator allows you to set a threshold for each network port. When a threshold level is exceeded, the iTap Port Aggregator issues an SNMP trap and the alarm LED illuminates. The iTap Port Aggregator records the level of the highest peak along with the date and time.

Tap Mode
If the aggregated traffic exceeds 100 percent of the monitoring port bandwidth, there is no need to switch out the device for a conventional half-duplex Tap. Simply enable Tap Mode and the iTap Port Aggregator stops aggregating the network traffic and instead sends all of the traffic arriving at network Port A to monitor Port 1 and all of the traffic arriving at network Port B to monitor Port 2.

Port Ordering and Timestamping
Port Aggregators cannot guarantee the ordering of the packets in the aggregated traffic stream until now. Enable the Port Ordering feature of the iTap Port Aggregator and internal timestamping ensures that your monitoring tools see the packets in the exact time sequence that they arrived at the Tap´s network ports, eliminating false protocol violations that impede speedy problem resolution.
For accurate timing analysis, use the Timestamping feature of the iTap Port Aggregator. When enabled, the CRC bytes of each packet in the monitoring data stream are replaced with an 8 nanosecond resolution timestamp revealing the exact time the packet arrived at the network port. In addition, the most significant bit of the 32-bit timestamp field indicates which of the two network ports received the packet.

Access Information Anywhere
The Web Manager allows you to remotely set parameters, view status information, and monitor traffic statistical data. These interfaces provide security and performance information such as the number of over- and under-sized packets, packet collisions, and CRC errors. You can remotely set the alarm thresholds, clear the traffic data counters, and turn on or off a Monitor Port.

Web Manager
Net Optics Web Manager is the browser-based interface that allows you to change settings, view status, and retrieve data remotely with simple-to-use controls. When you access an iTap Port Aggregator with Web Manager, all configuration, status, and traffic data are displayed on a single page. Changes to the configuration can be made with a few clicks of the mouse.

1 Gigabit Port Aggregator iTAP
IPA-SX5-SFP, IPA-50SX5-SFP, IPA-LX5-SFP

IPA-SX5-SFP, IPA-50SX5-SFP, IPA-LX5-SFP
The industry’s only real-time full-duplex aggregated traffic monitoring for 10 GigaBit networks to 10 GigaBit monitoring tools and appliances. Capture the traffic from a full-duplex link to two tools using only one NIC in each device.

The iTap Port Aggregator is making network monitoring easier than ever. The iTap Port Aggregator displays the link utilization levels for both directions in real time, with the size and time of the last peak, right on the front panel. The iTap Port Aggregator is accessible from remote interfaces that provide information and control from anywhere in the network. The iTap gives you the information and the passive access point you need to respond quickly to network events.

Performance Aggregation
The iTap Port Aggregator combines and regenerates both directions of a full-duplex stream, sending all aggregated traffic out one or two separate passive monitoring ports. Typically, full-duplex monitoring with a network tap requires two NICs (or a dual-channel NIC) - one interface for each side of the full-duplex link. The Tap Port Aggregator enables one or two devices to simultaneously monitor a full-duplex link using only one NIC per device.

Buffers Absorb Bursts
When the traffic levels exceed the capacity of the receiving NIC, the iTap Port Aggregator stores the overflow traffic in buffer memory. For high-load links, the iTap Port Aggregator is available with 1GB of memory. The buffers clear automatically when the traffic volume falls below the receiving capacity of the NIC. These buffers allow the iTap Port Aggregator to absorb traffic bursts without dropping packets.

Traffic Monitoring
The iTap Port Aggregator monitors the utilization levels of both sides of the full-duplex link. This information is displayed on the front panel and is available from the remote interfaces. The iTap Port Aggregator allows you to set a threshold for each side of the full-duplex link at which an alarm is triggered. When a threshold level is exceeded, the alarm LED illuminates and the remote interfaces record the event. The iTap Port Aggregator records the level of the highest peak along with the date and time. Since the iTap Port Aggregator is monitoring the utilization levels, this information is always available regardless of the aggregation process.

Access Information Anywhere
The Web Manager and System Manager allow you to remotely set parameters, view status information, and monitor traffic statistical data. These interfaces provide security and performance information such as the number of over- and under-sized packets, packet collisions, and CRC errors. You can remotely set the alarm thresholds, clear the traffic data counters, and turn on or off a Monitor Port. This access is also available via an optional wireless link from your wireless PDA or laptop.

Web Manager
Net Optics Web Manager is the browser-based interface that allows you to change settings, view status, and retrieve data remotely with simple-to-use controls. When you access an iTap Port Aggregator with Web Manager, all configuration, status, and traffic data are displayed on a single page. Changes to the configuration can be made with a few clicks of the mouse.

System Manager
Net Optics System Manager is an SNMP management tool that offers central management of all Net Optics iTap devices in the network. You can organize iTaps into groups according to workgroup, location, or any other criteria. As with Web Manager, you can view all status, configuration, and traffic information and make changes quickly to any iTap in the system. The iTap Port Aggregator generates SNMP alarm traps for system status, threshold alarm, link status, and power status. If you are already using an SNMP management tool, iTap Port Aggregators can be fully accessed after loading Net Optics Management Information Base (MIB) file.

Simply Plug It In
Full-duplex monitoring to a single NIC is a snap with the Port Aggregator Tap. All network and monitoring cables necessary for plug-and-play deployment are included with the Tap. Everything you need, right out of the box.

Security, Visibility, and Reliability
You have the option of setting the iTap Port Aggregator so that it will not display data on the LCD and the Management Port will be disabled, thus preventing it from being accessed from the network. The Monitor Ports can also be turned off to prevent unauthorized access to the network link. The monitoring device connected to the iTap Port Aggregator sees all full-duplex traffic including Layer 1 and Layer 2 errors. Redundant power connections provide uptime protection.

Doing Our Part
We are dedicated to ensuring user safety, and developing products that are increasingly environmentally friendly. All of our Taps adhere to UL and CE safety certifications; FCC, VCCI, and C-Tick EMC certifications; and RoHS and WEEE environmental certifications.

Net Optics GigaBit Port Aggregator with SFP Monitor Ports provides ultra-efficient access to critical links. The two small form factor pluggable (SFP) monitor ports give network managers greater flexibility when connecting monitoring devices to gigabit fiber networks.

Net Optics GigaBit Port Aggregator with SFP Monitor Ports provides ultra-efficient access to critical links. Typically, full-duplex monitoring with a network tap requires two NICs - one interface for each side of the tapped full-duplex connection. The GigaBit Port Aggregator combines and regenerates these streams, sending all aggregated data out two passive monitoring ports. The two small form factor pluggable (SFP) monitor ports give network managers greater flexibility when connecting monitoring devices to gigabit fiber networks.

Buffering Prevents Lost Data
The Gigabit Port Aggregator is designed to handle the combined traffic of a single full-duplex link. Normally, the traffic should be below the receiving capacity of the NIC, that is, less than 1 Gbps. When the traffic queue exceeds the capacity of the NIC, the Tap buffers the overflow up to 512 MB per side of the full-duplex connection (1 GB total). The buffers clear automatically when the traffic volume falls below the receiving capacity of the NIC. For example, if there is a traffic burst and a tap connected to a 1 Gbps network port on a monitoring device is now receiving 1.2 Gbps of traffic, the Tap buffers data until the burst is over. The Tap then sends the buffered data to the monitoring device until the buffer is cleared.

SFP Flexibility
Net Optics GigaBit Port Aggregator with SFP Monitor Ports provides connectivity to network links for monitoring devices with dissimilar interface cards. The SFP Monitor Ports allow the Port Aggregator to be field upgraded or reconfigured for increased flexibility. The GigaBit Port Aggregator with SFP Monitor Ports requires the purchase of one or two SFP conversion kits.

Simple to Deploy
Net Optics Gigabit Port Aggregator addresses the fact that many monitoring systems, including most software-based solutions, only offer a single channel NIC, limiting full-duplex visibility. While adding a second NIC can help maintain data integrity and visibility, there is a tradeoff in flexibility and ease-of-use. An operating system and NICs that enable binding are often required to achieve the same functionality as the GigaBit Port Aggregator. In contrast, the GigaBit Port Aggregator requires no configuration on the monitoring devices.

Better than Span Ports
In the past, Span ports were occasionally used to aggregate tapped traffic. However, in addition to missing Layer 1 and Layer 2 errors, Span ports support very limited buffering and can simply drop data during bursts. The generous buffers of the GigaBit Port Aggregators prevent data loss in these conditions.

Security and Visibility
Without an IP address, monitoring devices are isolated from the network, dramatically reducing their exposure to attacks. However, the monitoring device connected to the GigaBit Port Aggregator still sees all full-duplex traffic as if it were in-line, including Layer 1 and Layer 2 errors.

Simply Plug It In
Full-duplex monitoring to a single NIC is a snap with the Port Aggregator Tap. All network and monitoring cables necessary for plug-and-play deployment are included with the Tap. Everything you need, right out of the box.

Reliability
For extra uptime protection, Net Optics Taps offer redundant power connections. Should the primary power source fail, the Tap automatically switches to the backup power source. Even if power is lost and reapplied, the network is not affected. All network and monitoring cables necessary for plug-and-play deployment are included.
