Scalable design with media conversion.

Network test access points (TAPs) are hardware tools that allow you to monitor and access your network. Bypass TAPs (active TAPs), also referred to as a 'bypass switch',  are used with inline, active security appliances such as next generation firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. Garland Technology bypass TAPs are purpose-built hardware devices that let you see every bit, byte and packet.®

Bypass TAPs are used to connect a monitored network segment to an in-line active appliance and monitor the device's health. If your security device goes off-line for any reason the bypass TAP will automatically 'switch to bypass mode’ keeping your network link up while you to resolve the issue.

  • Securely TAP a 10G circuit and convert to SR, LR and ER.
  • Take your appliance off line without interrupting data traffic for: updates, maintenance and troubleshooting.
  • Guarantee 100% production circuit uptime with appliance heartbeat and dual internal power supplies.
  • House up to four (4) TAPs in a 1U chassis.
  • Network Failsafe Technology: during failsafe in-line appliances still receive packets. Garland failsafe technology recognizes power outages and automatically closes the relay circuitry in less than eight milliseconds then reconnects the two network devices connected to ports A and B. 
  • Bypass TAPs are fully configurable and support multiple modes: tap 'breakout,' aggregation, regeneration/SPAN and bypass.
  • 100% secure and invisible; no IP address, no Mac address; cannot be hacked.
  • Configure and manage remotely or locally.
  • Support for packet injection, jumbo frames, link failure propagation with TACACS, SNMP and Syslog.
  • TAP modules are field upgradable.
  • Made, tested and certified in the USA.
