"Are You Still Using SPAN Ports?”—[Video] A Recap of Cisco Live! Berlin

We had a blast at Cisco Berlin 2016 this past week with the 12,000+ attendees. German attendance was strong, but there were plenty of people from large industrial manufacturers, governmental agencies, telecom and more representing locations from around the globe. We met a lot of great networking professionals while supporting our technology partner, Cisco, as we focused on showing our commitment to EMEA and network access points (TAPs).

However, even with so many impressive networking pros, we’re always surprised how many of them still use SPAN ports.

As seen in our TAP’d In Cisco Berlin video – we converted many of them!

“Are You Still Using SPAN?”—Our Educational Approach to the Conference

There’s a reason our industry loves attending the Cisco Live! series of events—they help us keep up with the rapidly changing network access industry as well as providing us an opportunity to educate others on best practices for network access. We spent the week making it clear that if you’re still using SPAN, you do not have 100% network access or visibility.

TAP’d In – Cisco Berlin  


Times in the Network Access Community

In the last few months, consolidations, buyouts, product redefinitions and unexpected end-of-life scenarios have plagued network access community. With our dedicated office staff in Germany, we’re pushing to prove that we are committed to both the U.S. and EMEA markets by providing network access products that support the entire wire.

One of the most sought after network TAP solutions were for 10G fiber monitoring to support in-band appliances. Whether you’re a U.S. company with gigabit copper networks or a German company shifting to 10G fiber monitoring solutions, we are committed to providing a complete line of network TAPs for anything from the industrial Ethernet to emerging data centers.

Cisco Support Doesn’t Stop in Germany

We had such a great time supporting Cisco in Berlin that we’ve already signed up to attend the U.S. version of the show in Las Vegas from July 10 to July 14. If you’re stilling using SPAN, make sure to find us at the show and learn why network TAPs should be your primary access solution.

Until then, we wish you all the best!
