XtraTAP: Modular Packet Broker

Modular Network TAP and Packet Broker Data Center Solutions for 1G Network Monitoring

Visibility starts with the packet. A network TAP (test access point) is a hardware device that allows you to access and monitor your network traffic by copying packets without impacting or compromising network integrity.

The XtraTAPTM: Modular Packet Broker are purpose-built active network TAPs that support filtering, tap ‘breakout,’ aggregation, bypass and regeneration/SPAN modes guaranteeing your tools see every bit, byte, and packet.®

This TAP Packet Broker combines Garland Technology’s high quality network TAPs with high density packet brokers, incorporating TAP visibility with media conversion, filtering, aggregation and load balancing. Streamlining modern visibility fabrics to save rack space and budget, providing network tools the ultimate in traffic visibility optimization.
