Cost-Effective Monitoring for Multi-Device Copper Networks is Here!

June 26, 2015 by Jonathan Petkevich

Proper access is the core component of any visibility architecture—you need to be able to capture the data before you can properly analyze it. To further help our customers, Ixia has released a new regenerator tap for copper networks. Regeneration means you get the same clean copy of incoming data distributed to multiple output ports in real time.

The Ixia Net Optics Regeneration Taps solve the key physical layer challenges of multi-device monitoring for 10, 100, and 1000MB (1 GbE) copper networks. Up to 16 devices can be connected to a single regenerator tap. This helps IT maximize resources and save on access points because multiple devices can monitor link traffic simultaneously through one cost-effective tap. Secure, passive access for many devices will deliver a superior return on your monitoring investments.

The regeneration tap is perfect for simple out-of-band access or when you need inline monitoring. Once you have the proper data, it can then be forwarded to a packet broker for filtering or sent on directly to monitoring tools.
