Net Optics High-Density Flex Tap™ MTP Delivers Total Traffic Visibility in a Compact, Cost-Efficient Footprint
Slender, versatile Tap fits 12 MTP Taps—or 48 10G Taps—into a single rack unit at 480 Gbps for substantial savings on operations and rack space costsSanta Clara, Calif. – January 21, 2013 – Net Optics, Inc., the leading provider of Total Application and Network Visibility solutions, announces the launch of its advanced, high-density Flex Tap MTP. With rack space becoming increasingly more expensive, the new Flex Tap MTP enables deployment of high-speed tapping solutions in an extremely compact 1U space, offering substantial business and productivity advantages.
Space saving and easy-to-use, this scalable Tap leverages the high performance, reliability and convenience of the popular Flex Tap family, the first Taps to reach the 100G landmark. With rack space increasingly expensive, the new Flex Tap MTP enables deployment of high-speed tapping solutions in an extremely compact 1U space, offering substantial business and productivity advantages. Major telcos have overwhelmingly recognized the Tap's cost-efficiency, reliability and support for numerous network design options.
- Mix and match approach (1G, 10G, 40G and 100G in a single deployment)
- Fits 48 10G taps into a single rack
- Optimized for fiber networks with throughput of 480 Gbps
- Requires no power or IP address
The Flex Tap MTP allows any connected monitoring device to sustain total visibility of full duplex traffic as if it were in-line, instantly identifying Layer 1 and Layer 2 errors.
Requiring no power or IP address, the Flex Tap MTP avoids introducing a point of failure and has zero impact on other network connections. This adds up to transparent, 24/7, full-duplex monitoring that's totally isolated from the network. The Flex Tap MTP is designed for ultimate compatibility with all major manufacturers' monitoring devices and intrusion detection systems augments Net Optics' LC/Single Mode (SM) capabilities. Using 4 MTP to duplex LC cables enables the Flex Tap MTP to be utilized like four 10G Taps. It uses the same rack mount frame as that which deploys Flex Tap LC models.
“We're excited to make available this high-performance productivity solution that delivers comprehensive Tapping capabilities within a very cost-effective parameter. It adds up to an overall superior investment value for our customers,” said Daniel Aharon, Senior Director of Product Management at Net Optics.
Net Optics is known industry-wide for pioneering and advancing Tap technology throughout the last sixteen years. The success and wide acceptance of these sophisticated Taps provided a foundation for the company's growth as an application and network visibility provider, while continuing to dominate the Tap marketplace.
