In the midst of its overseas expansion, Garland Technology continues its aggressive outreach campaign with the launch of its latest passive TAP. The 40Gigabit-SR4 fiber network TAP eliminates the need for SPAN Ports, and allows users to TAP multi-mode OM3 and OM4 fiber types with 100% network visibility.
Garland, TX (PRWEB) December 19, 2013 -- Garland Technology LLC, as it continues its expansion overseas, is also forging into new territory with the launch of a new passive TAP. The 40Gigabit-SR4 fiber network TAP eliminates the need for SPAN Ports by allowing 100% real network access with no downtime. As a result, users simply have to install the TAP once for complete visibility, and never have to upgrade the network solution unless new fiber types are desired.
One of the main benefits to this latest TAP is theelimination of SPAN Ports for monitoring a 40Gigabit network, which have limitations to network security systems and network performance monitoring. In particular, SPAN ports may drop data packets if over-subscribed, often come with limited memory capabilities, drop errored frames, and can be easily misconfigured during the initial installation. On the other hand, Garland Technology’s new passive 40Gigabit-SR4 fiber network TAP provides real access to 100% of the network’s traffic up to 80 gigabits.
In addition, the passive fiber network TAP does not require an IP address or Mac address, which is a main deterrent to hackers that highly rely on such non-secure data. Key features of the TAP include MPO-MTP fiber connections, multi-mode 50micron OM3 and OM4, standard split or custom split ratios, and easy installation of plug and play features.
Garland Technology is also proud to stand by the quality of its products, all of which are made in the USA. Every TAP is tested and certified, and the manufacturing process is highly scrutinized and monitored to ensure each product.
“The 40Gigabit-SR4 is a great product,” Jerry Dillard, CTO, said. “Garland uses the highest grade optical components to prevent degradation to the light and to minimize losses - insuring the optical receiver has a clean signal. Since a lot of our customers are moving from 10G to 40G, we were happy to provide this alternative to the less-effective SPAN ports.”
The Buffalo, NY- and Garland, TX-based Garland Technology also works with technology partners and resellers to combine and bundle its products with network security, network monitoring, application performance monitoring, lawful interception configurations for a complete solution.
