XtraTAP: Portable Packet Broker

Flexible Visibility Solution with Advanced TAP Filtering and Media Conversion to Improve Tool Performance

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: Portable Packer Brokers 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 advanced TAP with Packet Broker functionality provides the ultimate flexibility and ease of use for a range of solutions, from providing media conversion, to easily filtering out the traffic that is not used or filtering only the traffic needed to monitor. Leading to optimized tool performance, with better visibility and reduced processing burden with unneeded data.
