TAP + Aggregation for Gigabit Copper Networks

While we keep hearing about network migrating to 40G or 100G, it's important to note that many networks still consist of 1 Gigabit copper network links, and will require network traffic visibility. Copper Network Taps are the best way to see traffic going over the network as they will neither affect production traffic nor become a point of failure in the network.

The days of siloed IT infrastructures are quickly ending as services, applications and network components become more interdependent. IT infrastructures are becoming more complex and it’s falling on your shoulders to keep mean time to resolution (MTTR) metrics at a reasonable level. Research shows that the average MTTR in medium-density desktop support centers is nearly 10 hours—but this doesn’t paint a complete picture of the problem.
