Products > Aggregation Taps

Aggregator Taps offer total access to full-duplex links with only one NIC or network port. Aggregation Taps are basically subdivided into two groups - Port Aggregation Taps and Link Aggregation Taps:
Port Aggregator Topology
  • Port Aggregation Taps are aggregating the RX- and TX traffic of one network link to one monitoring port. Therefore it is possible to analyze the Full Duplex network traffic on one single interface. After aggregating the TX - and RX traffic to one single port, the aggregated traffic is regenerated to a second monitoring port, providing the possibility to have a second monitoring tool to analyze the Full Duplex traffic with also just one NIC.

  • Link Aggregators allow the monitoring of multiple network segments with one or several monitoring appliances. These Taps are aggregating the traffic of up to 12 Full Duplex connections into one single interface After aggregation, the traffic is regenerated to up to 24 monitoring Ports . One big advantage of this solution is that the connected monitoring system only needs one NIC to monitor all 12 connections at the same time. Link Aggregation Taps are perfectly designed for the analysis of asymmetric network traffic and redundant routes with dynamic network protocols.

The CTP-1000 tap can be installed between any two network devices, such as firewalls, routers, or switches, and allow traffic to flow between these network points. The tap makes a copy of the data flowing through it, and provides the packet copy to network appliances or tools for application, security or recording purposes.

Visibility for Single or Dual Interface Monitoring Solutions

The CTP-1000 tap can be installed between any two network devices, such as firewalls, routers, or switches, and allow traffic to flow between these network points. The tap makes a copy of the data flowing through it, and provides the packet copy to network appliances or tools for application, security or recording purposes.

Aggregation Mode
The CTP-1000 can combine the two full duplex network streams of data together into a single monitoring output. Aggregation mode allows a tool with a single port to monitor full duplex communication on a network link. In Aggregation mode, the tap creates identical copies of the aggregate data on the network tapped network link. This mode allows 2 tools to see the same data. Primary and secondary tools are often used with Aggregation mode, since they both see the same network packets.

Non-Aggregation Mode
Non-aggregating mode allows the port to run at full line rate, without dropping traffic. This option is a popular choice when security or packet analyzers need to see every packet. Analyzers and probes connected to 1 Gigabit links can typically only receive a maximum of 1 Gigabit per port. In cases where you want to receive at line rates on a network link, use the CTP-1000 in non-aggregating mode, but remember you need to use 2 ports on your monitoring device to watch both sides of the network link.

Regeneration
In Aggregation mode, the tap generates 2 copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools monitoring access to the same link. In addition to eliminating contention for access to critical links, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.

Reliable and Easy to Use
Unlike setting up operating systems and binding NICs, the CTP-1000 is simple to deploy, and every unit comes with dual redundant power supplies to ensure monitoring uptime. A convenient switch on the back of the device allows users to choose between Aggregation and Non-Aggregation modes. After setting the aggregation switch, the device is plug and play. There is no other configuration or setup necessary for this easy to use, reliable device.

Security
The CTP-1000 does not have MAC addresses so it is essentially invisible to the network. Use the CTP-1000 when you want to collect and capture packets for a security or storage application. The copy of traffic into the security or monitoring tool is one-way, so the CTP-1000 won't become a point of access for hackers, nor can anyone get to the security probe or recording device through the tap (since the traffic is one way).

Real-time, simultaneous passive monitoring of a single full-duplex link with two devices - using only one NIC per device.

Net Optics 10/100 to 10/100/1000 Dual Port Aggregator Taps provide ultra-efficient access to critical links. This pioneering technology enables any two devices to simultaneously monitor a full-duplex link - using only one NIC per device.

Typically, full-duplex monitoring with a network tap requires two NICs (or a dual channel NIC) one interface for each side of the tapped full-duplex connection. The Dual Port Aggregator Tap combines and regenerates these streams, sending all aggregated data out two separate passive monitoring ports. The best part of this innovation is the onboard memory to make sure traffic isn't dropped during bursts.

Buffering Prevents Lost Data
The Dual Port Aggregator Tap is designed to handle the combined traffic of a single full-duplex link. Normally, the traffic should be below the receiving capacity of the NIC, that is, less than 10,100 or 1000 Mbps.

When the traffic queue exceeds the capacity of the NIC, the Tap buffers the overflow of up to 512 megabytes per side of the full-duplex connection. For your convenience, the buffers clear automatically when the traffic volume falls below the receiving capacity of the NIC. For example, if there is a traffic burst and a tap connected to a 100 Mbps network port on a monitoring device is now receiving 140 Mbps of traffic, the Tap buffers data until the burst is over. The Tap then sends the buffered data to the monitoring device until the buffer is cleared.

Simple to Deploy
Net Optic Dual Port Aggregator Tap is a simple plug-and-play solution addressing the fact that many monitoring systems, including most software based solutions, only offer a single channel NIC, limiting full-duplex visibility. While adding a second NIC can help maintain data integrity and visibility, there is a trade-off in flexibility and ease-of-use. An operating system and NICs that enable binding are often required to achieve the same functionality and the Dual Port Aggregator Tap. In contrast, the Dual Port Aggregator Tap requires no additional components or configuration on the monitoring devices.

Better than Span Ports
In the past, span ports were occasionally used to aggregate tapped traffic. However, in addition to other shortcomings of span port monitoring, span ports support very limited buffering and can simply drop data during bursts. The generous buffers of the Dual Port Aggregator Tap prevent data loss in these conditions.

Zero Delay™ - A Net Optics Breakthrough
Highly sensitive network locations can improve monitoring performance via the innovative features of Net Optics Taps. If power is lost to other 10/100 Taps, the connected devices may introduce delays as they detect the power loss and try to re-establish their link.

Net Optics' pioneering design ensures that any loss of power to the Tap is transparent to the network, and does not affect the flow of traffic through the Tap eliminating packet delay and loss as potential security issues.

Security and Visibility
Without an IP address, monitoring devices are isolated from the network, dramatically reducing their exposure to attacks. However, the monitoring device connected to the Tap still sees all full-duplex traffic as if it were in-line, including Layer 1 and Layer 2 errors.

Simply Plug It In
Full-duplex monitoring to a single NIC is a snap with the Aggregator Tap. All network and monitoring cables necessary for plug-and-play deployment are included with the Tap. Everything you need, right out of the box.

Reliability
For extra uptime protection, Net Optics Taps offer redundant power connections. Should the primary power source fail, the Tap automatically switches to the backup power source. Power LEDs on the front of the Tap indicate the current power source even if power is lost and reapplied, there is always zero delay to network traffic.

The SINGLEstream™ SS-1204BT Link Aggregation Tap is inserted inline (ports 1 and 2) and will collect traffic from a network link and allow you to combine it into a single output. With 2 monitoring ports (3 and 4), you can have 2 copies of that aggregate data, or when link utilization is high, keep the full duplex streams seperate. The SINGLEstream™ SS-2206BT-BT-S Link Aggregation Tap is inserted inline and can collect traffic from two network links and allow you to combine traffic into a single output. With 2 monitoring ports, you can have 2 copies of that aggregate data, or keep the full duplex streams seperate, when utilization is high. For additional flexibility, the monitor ports, 5 and 6 can also receive traffic from an external mirror port or another tap.

Aggregation
Monitoring network traffic from two different sources is an important and frequent requirement in network analysis, commonly referred to as data aggregation. For example, in order to properly troubleshoot mostnetwork problems, network professionals need to receive traffic from both sides of a full duplex conversation.

While traditional taps might enable full-duplex monitoring of all traffic on a network link, they transmit the data to the connected monitoring device in two separate half-duplex streams (one for Tx and one for Rx). Not only does this require the monitoring device to have two network interface cards, it also requires that the device be capable of combining and processing both streams of data in order to monitor both sides of the conversation. Not all monitoring systems, including the most popular software solutions, have the required hardware to aggregate traffic.

The SINGLEstream Link Aggregation Tap combines both directions of a full duplex data stream and allows any connected monitoring device, including those with only one NIC, to receive a copy of all the data - in a single trace file.

Dual Stream Mode
For dual-receive capable tools and times when there is no substitute for full line rate data capture (e.g. network attacks), the SINGLEstream can be configured to work exactly like a traditional full duplex tap, providing a copy of full-rate Gigabit data to connected tools in two separate streams (Tx and Rx).

LINKprotect™
Many traditional taps prevent the operation of redundant routing and failover systems because they keep both sides of the network invisible to the other. The built-in LINKprotect feature eliminates this point of network failure by continuously monitoring both sides of the tapped network for link status. If one side of the tap loses link status, LINKprotect™ will close the other side of the link, so routers and switches can engage protocols to bypass the failed link.

LINKprotect will also keep monitoring both sides of the link until repaired, where it can then automatically re-establish the primary link. Timers (polling and recovery) and link reestablishment settings (manual or auto) are all user-configurable on both sides of the link and provide a level of convenience and flexibility not previously available in copper Gigabit taps.

Regeneration
One-to-Many configurations replicate copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools monitoring access to the same links. In addition to eliminating contention for access to critical links, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.

Reliable and Easy to Use
Unlike setting up operating systems and binding NICs, the SINGLEstream Link Aggregation Tap is simple to deploy, and every unit comes with dual redundant power supplies to
ensure monitoring uptime

Provide Multiple Tool Access and Achieve Full-Duplex Visibility for Two (2) resp. Four (4) In-Line Network Links Even with Single Interface solutions

Aggregation
Monitoring full duplex network traffic from multiple sources is often a critical requirement for network monitoring applications. For example, in order to properly monitor redundant networks or a pair of load balanced links, network professionals might need to receive traffic simultaneously from two different network segments.

In some cases, two network links may be bound together and operate as one logical network in order to improve bandwidth. In such an implementation, packets are distributed across two different physical links. Often, traffic transmits on one segment and receives on another. This makes network analysis and monitoring especially challenging. If an analyzer or monitoring device is put on only one physical link, it will not see the entire conversation.

The SINGLEstream Dual Link Aggregation Tap can selectively combine a full duplex data stream to allow connected monitoring devices, even those with only one NIC to receive a copy of all the data collected from both taps in a single trace file.

LINKprotect™
Many traditional taps prevent the operation of redundant routing and failover systems because they keep both sides of the network invisible to the other. The built-in LINKprotect™ feature eliminates this point of network failure by continuously monitoring both sides of the tapped network for link status. If one side of the tap loses link status, LINKprotect™ will close the other side of the link, so routers and switches can engage protocols to bypass the failed link.

LINKprotect™ will also keep monitoring both sides of the link until repaired, where it can then automatically re-establish the primary link. Timers (polling and recovery) and link re-establishment settings (manual or auto) are all user-configurable on both sides of the link and provide a level of convenience and flexibility not previously available in copper Gigabit taps.

Regeneration
One-to-Many configurations replicate copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools monitoring access to the same links. In addition to eliminating contention for access to critical links, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.

Reliable and Easy to Use
Unlike setting up operating systems and binding NICs, the SINGLEstream™ Link Aggregation Tap is simple to deploy, and every unit comes with dual redundant power supplies to ensure monitoring uptime.

1G Inline Fiber iLink Aggregator

Click to enlarge - Aggregation Taps - Product Photo - 1G Inline Fiber iLink Aggregator
Aggregate all traffic from multiple gigabit links for flexible monitoring coverage.

Net Optics iLink Agg is a 1G link aggregator that combines traffic from multiple network links or Span ports into one single interface and sends it to monitoring tools across the network. After aggregation, the traffic is regenerated to up to 24 monitoring ports. With up to 24 ports in a 1U form-factor, iLink Agg enables a pool of up to 8 monitoring appliances to be connected to as many as 8 network links using integrated in-line Taps, plus as many as 8 Span ports. This helps eliminating resource contention by enabling up to eight devices to monitor identical traffic at the same time and Improves monitoring flexibility with fully configurable port mappings.

An additional big advantage of the iLink Agg is that the connected monitoring system needs only one network interface controller (NIC) to monitor all 12 connections at the same time. The iLink Agg is perfectly designed for the analysis of asymmetric network traffic and redundant routes with dynamic network protocols.

Aggregation, Regeneration and Port Mapping
The iLink Agg supports fully configurable port mapping, enabling aggregation, regeneration, and matrix switching in a single device. Any-to-any and many-to-many port mappings are supported, and any port can be used as an input, an output, or both at the same time.

Ease of Use
The iLink Agg can be managed locally or remotely through a command line interface (CLI), Web UI and SNMP v3. TACACS+ and RADIUS perform authentication and authorization. RMON traffic statistics are available through the management interface as well as remote software updates.

Zero Dropped Packets
The iLink Agg scans incoming traffic from the network ports on a first-in-first-out basis. The scan rate is optimized to ensure that no packets are dropped, as long as the sum of data rates on the network ports does not exceed the monitoring port capacity of 1 Gbps.

Flexibility
Net Optics iLink Agg provides connectivity to network links, Span ports, and monitoring tools with different fiber and copper media types. You can populate only those ports you need or provision extra ports to ensure uptime and port availability.

Secure Monitoring
The iLink Agg has no IP address on the network, so it is immune to viruses or other attacks. The addressable management port is totally isolated from the network data path, and can be connected to a dedicated management subnet for increased security.

Compatibility
The iLinkAgg is compatible with all Net Optics Taps and bypass switches, as well as with all major manufacturers´ monitoring devices, including protocol analyzers, probes, firewalls, and intrusion detection/prevention systems.

Full Duplex Visibility for Single Interface Monitoring Solutions

Aggregation
Monitoring network traffic from two different sources is an important and frequent requirement in network analysis, commonly referred to as data aggregation. For example, in order to properly troubleshoot most network problems, network professionals need to receive traffic from both sides of a full duplex conversation.

While traditional taps might enable full-duplex monitoring of all traffic on a network link, they transmit the data to the connected monitoring device in two separate half-duplex streams (one for Tx and one for Rx). Not only does this require the monitoring device to have two network interface cards, it also requires that the device be capable of combining and processing both streams of data in order to monitor both sides of the conversation. Not all monitoring systems, including the most popular software solutions, have the required hardware to aggregate traffic.

The SINGLEstream Link Aggregation Tap combines both directions of a full duplex data stream and allows any connected monitoring device, including those with only one NIC, to receive a copy of all the data - in a single trace file.

Dual Stream Mode
For dual-receive capable tools and times when there is no substitute for full line rate data capture (e.g. network attacks), the SINGLEstream can be configured to work exactly like a traditional full duplex tap, providing a copy of full-rate Gigabit data to connected tools in two separate streams (Tx and Rx).

Regeneration
One-to-Many configurations replicate copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools monitoring access to the same links. In addition to eliminating contention for access to critical links, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.

Reliable and Easy to Use
Unlike setting up operating systems and binding NICs, the SINGLEstream Link Aggregation Tap is simple to deploy, and every unit comes with dual redundant power supplies to ensure monitoring uptime

Ixia's xStream 40 product family provides comprehensive Network Packet Brokering for 40G networks, delivering filtering, aggregation, load-balancing, time stamping and more.

Aggregation, Filtering, and Load Balancing for 10GbE/40GbE Networks

The need to monitor and inspect all traffic on high-volume 10GbE and 40GbE networks pressures organizations to invest heavily in new 10/40GbE tools, or risk oversubscribing their current tools. The Ixia xStream™ 40 is a network packet broker (NPB) for high-speed networks, purpose-built for fail-safe inline security tool deployments and out-of-band network traffic monitoring.

The xStream 40 offers a comprehensive set of high availability (HA) features that are critical for fail-safe inline security tools deployment. Smart load-balancing enables deployment of multiple tools in parallel to increase the overall throughput, thus removing bottlenecks typically seen on a single security device. It also supports tools such as SSL decryptors, intrusion prevention systems (IPSs), firewalls, and web accelerators in serial for service-chaining. This enables banks, retailers, and government and health organizations to support many different enterprise network deployment scenarios.

The xStream 40 also features Ixia´s unique "Double Your Ports" feature (simplex connections), which provides industry-leading port density in a compact form factor. Moreover, each of the four 40GbE ports can be configured as four independent 10GbE ports, allowing a maximum of 64 10GbE ports. Furthermore, you can even combine four independent 10GbE ports into a single 40GbE, using the same MTP to LC fan-out cable, effectively yielding a maximum of 16 40GbE ports in the chassis.

Aggregation and Filtering
xStream 40 provides one-to-one, many-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many mappings of network links to monitor ports. Traffic from any set of network links and SPAN ports can be aggregated into a single stream and copied to any monitor port. xStream 40 is also a smart filtering appliance that directs traffic of interest to monitoring tools. Using the TapFlow™ filtering technology, each tool gets only the traffic it needs for its particular purpose, resulting in higher scalability and better security. The TapFlow hardware filtering engine processes traffic at full 40/10Gbps line speeds while filtering the traffic by protocol, IP address, TCP/UDP port, VLAN, and more.

Load Balancing Solution
The xStream 40 is a purpose-built appliance for distributing a traffic load to multiple tools. SFP+/QSFP+ ports and an integrated multi-speed flow distribution engine make xStream 40 ideal for distributing and load-balancing traffic from 10GbE and 40GbE links to multiple 1GbE and 10GbE tools.

It can also aggregate traffic from multiple 1GbE and 10GbE links and distribute it to 1GbE, 10GbE, or 40GbE tools. With the addition of a monitoring load balancer, these multiple 1GbE, 10GbE, or 40GbE tools can share the load to process increasing volumes of traffic more cost-effectively than investing in new 40GbE or 10GbE tools. Not only is the CAPEX lower, but major savings also accrue through avoiding the disruption and learning curve of integrating complex new tools into the environment.

High Availability
Highly reliable and foolproof HA feature supports Active-Active and Active-Standby modes with both Auto Sync and Manual Sync options to maintain configuration and state synchronization between the primary and secondary xStream 40 units. The HA link between the primary and secondary units can also be protected with a second link connected using a pair of spare ports. Load Balancing Group (LBG) supports spare ports with N:M tool redundancy where N active ports are protected by M warm standby tools. When tools are deployed in inline serial (service chaining), tools in the front can be safely bypassed when they fail so tools in rear can continue inspecting the traffic. Coupled with HA features in Ixia´s iBypass series, complex use cases can be implemented with extreme high availability.

Timestamping
xStream 40 supports timestamping of packets on the fly at line rate with nanosecond accuracy, supporting high-speed, low-latency trading environments. Using the PTPv2 (IEEE 1588) protocol, xStream 40 guarantees that the timestamping will remain accurate. The timestamp can be appended to packets on the fly with or without recalculation of the CRC.

Click to enlarge - Aggregation Taps - Product Photo - 10G Port Aggregator iTap
The industry's only real-time full-duplex aggregated traffic monitoring for 10 GigaBit networks to 10 GigaBit monitoring tools and appliances. Capture the traffic from a full-duplex link to two tools using only one NIC in each device.

The Ixia iTapTM 10GbE Fiber Port Aggregator makes network monitoring dramatically easier. The combination of a permanent, passive access point and remote monitoring of key traffic indicators increases management options and expedites your response to troubled links.

When an iTap Port Aggregator detects high utilization, it warns you with LEDs on the unit and notifications to monitoring software. You have no need for other timeconsuming tools to see these trouble spots.

iTap Port Aggregators display real-time link utilization levels in both directions, including the size and time of the last peak. The iTap Port Aggregator is accessible from remote interfaces that provide information and control from anywhere in the network. This gives you both the information and passive access point you need to respondquickly to network events. For greater flexibility and response speed, use iTap Port Aggregators with Ixia Matrix Switches; control deployment of your analyzers from one point without disturbing any network connections.

Aggregation Taps - Product Photo - SINGLEstream™ 10G Fiber Link Aggregation Tap
SINGLEstream™ 10G Fiber Link Aggregation Tap

Click to enlarge - Aggregation Taps - Product Photo - SINGLEstream™ 10G Fiber Link Aggregation Tap
The SS-2212-10G is passivley inserted inline and can collect traffic from ten network links and direct two links full duplex traffic toward two outputs. Non-powered, built in fiber taps mean that traffic is safely collected with less that 10ns of latency added to the network. With 2 monitoring ports, you can have 2 copies of full duplex, line rate data streams. The SS-2212-10G is best used where a large number of 10G links need to be troubleshot quickly with one or two analytic devices.

Reliable Visibility from Ten (10) 10G Links to 2 Monitoring Devices. Direct Each Tool to Any Tapped Link

10 Gigabit Access
The SS-2212-10G In-Line fiber network tap allows you to directa copy of traffic from any of the ten tapped network links and send the copy to one or both monitoring tools. Passive and non-intrusive visibility is available for two 10G monitoring tools.

Totally Passive and Power Fault Tolerant
Integrated fiber taps are completely passive devices and are not a point of failure on the network. Even if power is lost to the tap, the network traffic will not be affected. If one side of the link fails for any reason, the device on the other side of the link will recognize this outage immediately, so routers and switches can engage redundant protocols and failover systems.

Zero Latency
Fiber taps allow traffic to flow between network devices through an optical to optical interface, which resolves any latency concerns between network devices.

Regeneration
One-to-Many configurations replicate copies of identical network traffic to provide multiple tools monitoring access to the same links. In addition to eliminating contention for access to critical links, multiple tools can be connected to the same link for redundancy, testing, or advanced monitoring applications.

Interconnect up to 8 devices
Provide analyzer access for up to 80 10G links by interconnecting up to 8 SS-2212-10G devices. When interconnected, they present a single logical unit where one tool can be easily directed to receive a copy of traffic from any of up to 80 network links. A second tool can receive traffic from the same link or any of the other 80 links that are tapped.

Graphic Display and Command Line Interface
The front panel graphic display allows users to determine where the copy of network link traffic is sent. Since the SINGLEstream™ can be interconnected, up to 8 deep, the address of each device, is available on the front panel. Power levels (in dB) on each link are available to determine if other network changes have occurred such as bad patch cords.

Reliable and Easy to Use
The SINGLEstream™ Network Tap is simple to deploy, and every unit comes with dual redundant hot-swappable power supplies to ensure monitoring uptime.
