How TAPs Work

A passive optical network TAP designed to monitor one network connection generally comes with at least three ports: an A port, a B port, and a monitor port. TAPs allow the network traffic to flow through the A and B ports of the device uninterrupted, while simultaneously copying the same data to the monitor port. The monitor port can be used to feed VoIP recording devices, network intrusion detection systems, network probes, protocol analyzers, packet sniffers, RMON probes, and data aggregation and filtering systems such as the APCON IntellaView and IntellaFlex XR network visibility solutions.

An Uncensored View of All Network Traffic

APCON's portfolio of passive optical network TAPs captures network traffic under all conditions to simplify network monitoring and security. Each ApconTap model supports common datacenter optical fiber standards with split ratio options available at 50/50, 60/40, and 70/30. With passive fiber 40G and 100G TAPs, APCON offers short-range, long-range, and bidirectional models to accommodate requirements for high-density, next-generation datacenter deployments.
