Transfers network traffic from a full-duplex copper link to a copper analysis or security device.
- Efficiently copies full-duplex traffic and aggregates the traffic into a single stream to any analysis or security device with a single-receive capture interface
- Aggregator nTAPs provide greater protection than a SPAN port against packet loss on low-utilization networks
- Choose from a 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB buffer
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 utilization 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 analyzers, remote monitoring appliances, and forensics tools. For networks and analyzers of different topologies, an Observer Conversion Aggregator nTAP is available.
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.
