Ixia Network Tap
The Ixia family of taps provides 100 percent visibility and permanent passive access points into the customer’s network. When a monitoring tool is needed, simply connect the device to the tap instead of taking down the link and interrupting traffic. Taps pass all network traffic—including Layers 1 and 2 errors—without introducing bottlenecks or points of failure. Regardless of interface or location in the network, we provide a tap solution, supporting copper, multimode and single mode fiber at speeds up to 100Gbps with media conversion models available.
Fast and reliable, our passive network taps provide access for security and network management devices on all types of networks.
100% visibility to link traffic for your security and network monitoring tools
In-line link failover protection
Access ready connectivity
Taps can be deployed on any inline connection throughout the network, providing permanent access to network traffic and allowing total traffic visibility for network monitoring and security devices.
The need to measure traffic loads on networks that carry VoIP, videoconferencing, and security applications is ever increasing.
Get total traffic visibility for monitoring and security devices by placing the GigaBit or 10GigaBit Ixia Fiber Tap HD8 on critical network links.
Gig Zero Delay™ Tap is the industry’s only 10/100/1000BaseT Tap with true zero-delay operation to prevent network disruptions for maximum network reliability
Ixia Regeneration Taps enable the ability for multiple tools to monitor the same network traffic while adding the flexibility of modular SFP based monitor ports.
Ixia GigaBit SX to TX Converters are simple and reliable devices for connecting GigaBit fiber traffic to copper devices and links.
