Network Packet Brokers (NPBs)
A Hybrid Bypass Network TAP

Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) are hardware devices that provide monitoring and security tools access to traffic from one to many network links. Network Packet Brokers centralize network traffic making the tools function more efficiently by sharing packets between monitoring/security appliances. Additional features include: filtering, aggregating, regenerating, and load balancing.
