Network TAPs

Providing full network visibility with superior performance and density

CGS Tower TAP™ family of network TAPs (Test Access Point) are high quality passive network TAPs with the widest range of rates and split ratios, designed with performance, scalability and quality in mind.

The CGS Tower TAP™ provides an identical copy of the network traffic for security, monitoring and recording tools. It enables network infrastructure engineers to deploy decoupled, secure and failsafe Test Access Points across their network quickly, easily and with minimal installation disruption.

The high-density design of the Tower TAP™ family dramatically reduces the overall rack space footprint of traditional access methods.

Modern data center design architecture utilizes the Tower TAP™ family as a demarcation point to reduce the isolation time of performance failures in complex networks. This results in a major reduction in CAPEX and OPEX.

TAP Connectivity Example

Tap-schem

A network TAP is an external monitoring device that mirrors the traffic that passes between network nodes. A network TAP can be a virtual or a hardware device inserted at a strategic point in the network or public and private cloud to monitor specific data. 

CGS Tower TAP™ Family Advantages

Modular and flexible mix & match of all TAPs types and rates in 1RU enclosure

‘Push to Open’ ejection mechanism, handle-free design supporting high density and improved fiber management

Integrated safety laser shutters for staff protection

Ergonomic design with color coding scheme for ease of installation, operation and identification

Designed and optimized for latency sensitive applications (algo-trading)

Choose the Right Network Tap for your Needs

Standard TAPs

Standard TAPs are placed on a duplex link between two network elements and create a copy of the link’s traffic, to support cyber security and monitoring solutions. 

Bi-Directional TAPs

Bi-directional TAPs are placed on a bi-directional link between two network elements and create a copy of the link’s traffic, to support cyber security and monitoring solutions. 

MultiCopy TAPs

MultiCopy TAPs are placed on a simplex/duplex link between two network elements and create multiple copies of the link’s traffic, to support multiple cyber security and monitoring solutions.
