Keysight network taps, including patch taps, optical fiber taps, copper taps, tap aggregators and regen taps, provides dynamic network intelligence to help you maintain optimal performance and security. Network taps, installed directly to the network, are plug-and-play, and do not require costly hands-on management. Regardless of interface or network location, Ixia high-performance taps support both copper and multimode and single-mode optical fiber at speeds of up to 400 Gbps. The best part: Taps can provide permanent access to network traffic and allow total traffic visibility for network monitoring and security devices — without introducing costly bottlenecks or points of failure.
A cost effective alternative to Network Packet Brokers
iLink Aggregators are top of the range tap aggregators that can tap and aggregate traffic from up to 32 links and feed large numbers of tools. Some models contain inbuilt taps. They are a cost effective alternative to Network Packet Brokers if aggregation only (no filtering) functionality is required at speeds of 1Gbps and below.
