The 101 Series: Filtering TAPs

In our 101 network TAP series, we have explained the functionality of the various network TAPs that are available to gain access to the traffic that is typically found in a network. We have reviewed passive fiber TAPs, copper network TAPs, aggregation TAPs, SPAN/regeneration TAPs and the bypass TAP.   Now we have a new 1U or 2U Chassis System that supports our filtering TAPs – which for you, means an affordable 1G Packet Broker System that can do it all in one box.  Read on to see what filtering can do for your network…

Design-IT Solutions: Bypass TAPs add resiliency to the edge of the network

on 2/13/18 8:00 AM By | Jonathan Devoy | 0 Comments | Network Design
The Network Edge is one of the most important aspects of a network: it facilitates the ingress, egress, security, and optimization of network traffic. Any downtime in the edge will have a direct, negative effect on productivity and will eat into profits. For this month’s Design-IT scenario, I came across an interesting bypass tap solution for the network edge: by using a bypass tap, additional resiliency can be provided to network edge devices. Packet capture can also be offloaded from security devices, allowing the appliance’s resources to be dedicated to what they were intended for.

Leading the Future of Copper Network TAPs

on 2/8/18 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network TAPs
Due to rapidly increasing bandwidth and security concerns, the adoption of fiber optic technology, an industry expected to reach around USD 3.72 Billion by 2022, has generated a lot of talk about what the future of connectivity holds. In fact, talk about the end of ethernet, or copper gigabit networks has been going on for years.

What Is Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)?

on 2/1/18 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Software Defined Networking (SDN)
It’s been more than 5 years since the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) introduced network functions virtualization (NFV) to the world. And yet, so much of the IT industry is still trying to come to grips with what NFV really is. Part of the problem is that conversations about NFV inevitably involve discussions about virtual network functions (VNFs) and software-defined networking (SDN).
