Overview

The SmartNA™ chassis offers multiple modular slots to integrate a wide variety of TAP modules that safely connect tools while protecting network reliability and availability. The full range of hot-swappable TAP modules offer user-definable port options including fail-safe Copper, Bypass, Single-Mode Fiber (SMF), Multi-Mode Fiber (MMF) and SFP which allow businesses to meet their rapidly evolving network monitoring demands. The powerful 10Gbps chassis backplane allows copied traffic to be shared and filtered between the TAP modules without any throughput limitations. SmartNA™ is managed by Network Critical’s web Drag-N-Vu™ Graphical User Interface, making deployment and change management simple and accurate. Advanced features such as aggregation, filtering and port mapping are also made available through the GUI.
