Network visibility for telecommunications

We Have Your Back

Understanding the true complexities and issues faced by 5G services is unique, and our ability to develop innovative and intelligent systems that serve your every need is crucial to take advantage of in this up-and-coming and complex field of technology. 



Like you, we are constantly striving to improve our technology to best suit your network. 

The Challenge


  • Trouble in ensuring the data collected and analyzed is complete.

  • Downtime becomes a greater risk and need for quality TAPs and Packet Brokers increases


  • Lack of clarity in what security risks will be faced with 5G.



  • Increased expenditure in network infrastructure

  • Managing both network and security teams increases in difficulty

  • Less effective network visibility

The Solution

Raising Traffic Volumes:

Growing Security Concerns:

Increased Network Complexity:

To operate as cost-effectively as possible, many telcos try to maximize their network monitoring activities without having to buy new tools. Our intelligent aggregation solutions allow for users to keep their existing tools while reaching new levels of performance. 


By deploying the SmartNA-PortPlus or SmartNA-PortPlus HyperCore, telecommunication companies can use their existing monitoring platforms with an upgraded 100G/400G network throughput.


With the ever growing risks that security threats pose, it is important for companies to deploy security solutions that reduce as much risk as cost-effectively as possible. Network Critical’s Network TAPs and Packet Brokers provide complete network visibility solutions that eliminate the concerns for missing information. Use the product comparison chart (below) to compare the different available solutions.

The increasing complexity of global networks requires powerful and reliable network performance, monitoring and security tools. The hybrid SmartNA range can be tailored to your company’s unique and complex challenge. With flexible power from 1G to 400G, these hybrid ethernet TAPs and Packet Brokers make for flexible and powerful solutions.

All powered rates are as follows: 1/10/25/40/50/100/200/400 Gbps

Due to the enormous amount of traffic that 5G generates, Network Critical's SmartNA-PortPlus HyperCore is the ultimate solution. Offering up to 400G interfaces and up to a throughput of 25.6 Tbps of traffic (filtering, aggregation and scaling).

Telcos growing demands for high speed network links in order to accommodate the growth in data requirements for 5G makes for a challenging task that may bring new issues for NetOps teams to manage the masses of data with their existing toolsets.

Using our Passive Fiber MPO or LC TAPs, which provide secure and simple access to the live traffic in your high speed production networks, without introducing latency or a point of failure, alongside the SmartNA-PortPlus, or SmartNA-PortPlus HyperCore packet brokers, you can tap links from 10G to 400G and aggregate and disaggregate that data to the existing 10G tools. This allows NetOps teams to gain access and manipulate the vast amounts of data with their existing tools.


The Passive TAP and hybrid Packet Broker combination is the ideal solution for all network teams who are trying to manage the increased traffic using their currently installed, high-value, monitoring solutions. Our solutions can tap and gain access to high speed network links, where we can take the data from your chosen packet broker device and aggregate, filter and disaggregate the data to more manageable media for your existing network tools.
