The Ixia Tap family of products provides complete visibility into network traffic to facilitate optimal performance and security. Network taps are installed directly to the network as part of its architecture. And because they are plug-and-play, network taps 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 fibre at speeds of up to 100Gbps. 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.
