Observer Conversion TAPs

Copy Traffic From a Full-Duplex Copper Link and Send it to a Copper or Optical Monitoring Device

Install Observer Conversion nTAPs on 10 Mb, 100 Mb, or 1 Gb links for quick, anytime access to network traffic. When analyzers and similar monitoring devices communicate over different topologies than the network, Optical-to-Copper or Copper-to-Optical nTAPs bridge the gap. Conversion nTAPs make copies of network data, sending one back to the network and the other out for analysis.

For single-receive devices, Observer Aggregator Conversion nTAPs merge full-duplex links into single streams for transmission to up to two single-receive analysis devices. Industry-leading buffer sizes offer less likelihood of lost packets than SPAN ports to ensure critical traffic reaches analyzers, remote monitoring appliances, and forensics tools.


10/100/1000 Copper to Optical Conversion nTAP

Place a 10/100/100 Copper to Optical Conversion nTAP between two devices of interest on a 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps copper link. Then attach either a copper or optical monitoring device to the nTAP. Only one analyzer connection can be utilized at a time. To successfully analyze the full-duplex link, the monitoring device must be equipped with a dual-receive capture card.

10/100/1000 Aggregator Conversion nTAP

Place an Aggregator Conversion nTAP between two devices of interest on a 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps copper link. Then attach up to two analysis or security devices to the nTAP: two copper, or two optical, or one of each. The device must be equipped with a standard network card.

10/100/1000 Aggregator Conversion nTAP

10/100/1000 Copper to Optical Conversion nTAP

Place an Optical to Copper nTAP between two devices of interest on a 1Gbps full-duplex optical link. Then attach a 1Gb copper monitoring device to the nTAP. To successfuly analyze the full-duplex output from the TAP, the monitoring device must be equipped with a dual-receive capture card.

10/100/1000 Copper to Optical Conversion nTAP

Optical to Copper Aggregator nTAP

Use the Optical to Aggregator nTAP to connect to a 1Gb fiber full-duplex network. Then connect up to 2 copper monitoring devices to the nTAP. The monitoring devices can be equipped with standard NIC cards because the TAP will aggregate the full-duplex network.
