Fail-safe technology for your growing network needs

Fixed breakout network TAPs provide a safe and simple way to access live network traffic and provide copies to separate monitoring ports. In a full-duplex network link, a breakout network TAP will passively copy the live traffic, separate it into RX and TX streams, and send a copy to two monitoring ports, one for each direction of traffic. This ensures a complete copy of network traffic for your monitoring tools without the risk of packet loss.

The integrity of your live network is paramount. That’s why Network Critical breakout TAPs feature fail-safe technologies to preserve the flow of live traffic. LinkLock is featured on all 10/100 copper TAPs and all fibre optic TAPs in our breakout TAP range. LinkLock ensures that the live network link will never fail, even if the TAP suffers a power outage.

Breakout TAPs are available in a full range of network media and port densities to suit your deployment requirements. From portable units for strategic deployment into a single network to high-density units for infrastructure deployment in the wiring cabinet, Network Critical has a solution that will fit seamlessly into your data centre.
