[eBook] The 101 on Network TAPs - the Definitive Guide

As a sales leader, my day is filled with training and educating resellers, network professionals and new Garland team members on the different types of network TAPs available. Depending on who I'm talking with, the conversation can be an overview of how TAPs work, the variety of functions performed by TAPs and what network scenarios network TAPs are commonly used with.

I discovered early on, that there weren't any resources for network TAP training and teamed up with our engineers and experts to create a blog series called The 101 on Network TAPs. The blog series has been so successful, we took excerpts of the key learning concepts and created a comprehensive TAP training guide.

Today, I'm pleased to introduce our new eBook, The 101 on Network TAPs - The Networking Users Guide, this is a definitive guide explaining the same concepts I explain everyday.

Not a ...'for Dummies' Book

The 101 on Network TAPs eBook is written for anyone in the network connectivity profession that needs a strong baseline of knowledge on network TAPs. In addition to the overall content, there are three call out areas to appeal to all knowledge levels:
