Passive Fiber Optical UHD TAPs

Ultra High Density Fiber TAPs for 1G/10G/40G/100G

  • All-optical network path optimised for 1/10G MM or 1/10/40/100G SM (LC TAPs) and 40G/100G (MPO TAPs) fiber links, introduces zero latency

  • Always On; Requires no power, introduces no point of failure

  • Full range of split ratios & fiber types (SM/MM) 

  • US Conec MTP® Elite connectors, premium grade fiber and precision Fused Bioconical Taper (FBT) & Thin Film Filter (TFF) splicing for lowest insertion loss

  • IP/MAC address not required, ensuring 100% security for monitoring tools

  • Modular design and front mounted colour-coded network connectors enables fast installation and plug-n-play configuration changes

  • Efficient rack usage; 1U chassis frame can hold up to 24 TAPs in 8 modules

Passive Fiber Optical BiDi TAP

High Density Fiber TAPs for Cisco 40G/100G Bidirectional

The Cisco 40G/100G BiDi solutions are fast becoming a standard migration path from legacy to next-generation high speed networks. Monitoring the traffic in these links requires a special kind of optical tap that can provide the isolated wavelengths to the monitoring transceivers. Network Critical meets this challenge with our fully passive, low loss bidirectional optical tap device, specially designed to work seamlessly with the Cisco 40G/100G BiDi solutions.

  • All-optical network path designed for 40G/100G BiDi, introduces zero latency

  • Efficient rack usage; 8 fiber TAPs in 1U frame reduces data center real estate

  • Unmanaged device means no initial configuration time or on-going maintenance costs
