Garland Technology Continues Momentum Releasing Five Products to Portfolio

and Six Staffing Appointments


NEW YORK, June 4, 2018Garland Technology, a leading provider of network and test access solutions, today announced availability of the industry’s first Optical Multi-Mode 5 (OM5) media type for extended long-range and short-range data center applications and their environments. Improving upon the OM4 that was made standard by the Telecommunications Industry Association, Garland Technology’s OM5 Fiber Test Access Point (TAP) creates an opportunity to provide increased network performance to support longer distances, more ethernet connections, and fiber channel applications. Garland Technology also released five new products to include a Military Grade Industrial TAP, a Virtual TAP, a 100BASE-FX 1G Aggregator TAP and an updated Passive Replication TAP that will empower network and security teams to better address data compliance mandates and increase the speed of identification and resolution of network challenges. 

@GarlandTech Launches Industry’s First OM5 Fiber Test Access Point to Help Improve Network and Security Monitoring Demands

“We are continually proud to offer the newest and most economical network test access products to enterprises, service providers, and government agencies worldwide, but it’s our almost 10-year record of maintaining zero-fail on all products, that sets us apart,” states, Chris Bihary, Chief Executive Officer, Garland Technology. “It’s critical that we remain vigilant to understanding the challenges network and security teams face, and that we address both R&D and budget, simultaneously.”  


OM5 Fiber TAP: The first available in the market, providing increased reach and bandwidth for long-range and short-range data center applications and their environments; laser-optimized 50um fiber designed for 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s, and 100 Gb/s transmission.

Military Grade Industrial TAP: Upgraded military-grade copper test access point for use in extreme weather environments. The mil-spec connectors ensure reliable performance regardless of the operating environment. The TAP can be ordered as a portable single segment device or as a dual segment in-chassis solution, 100M and 1G options are available.

Garland vTAP: Software-based test access point solution that captures east-west traffic passing between tenant virtual machines, which can then be encapsulated and sent directly to monitoring tools or to network packet brokers in hybrid network architectures. The vTAP is VMware-approved for use with both virtual Standard Switches (vSS) and virtual Distributed Switches (vDS), with an alternate version offered for open stack and kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) deployments. 

100BASE-FX 1G Aggregator TAP: Provides line rate 100BASE-FX to 1G copper media conversion for increased compatibility with monitoring tools.  The test access point operates in in either breakout, aggregation, or span modes and guarantees zero packet loss regardless of the operating mode.

Passive Replication TAP: Allows multiple tools to access traffic without additional latency, taking one full-duplex input and delivering three copies of the network traffic, also allowing SPAN ports to be copied and sent to multiple locations for processing. 

“The world’s largest financial institutions eagerly awaited the ability to deploy extended bandwidth within their data centers to improve upon the efficacy of both localized and cloud-based transactions,” states, Chris Lauzze, Territory Sales Manager, Garland Technology. “As we deliver the industry’s newest, and most sought-after OM5 fiber solution, we are honored to help our financial, service provider, and enterprise customers be best positioned for extended revenue and business opportunity streams.”
