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.

Software Management Suite

System Manager

System Manager turns any Windows workstation into an SNMP-compatible management console to monitor and reconfigure all the iTap-enabled devices on your network.

System Manager is a centralized management console that provides access to all of your Net Optics iTap?enabled devices from anywhere within your organization. With System Manger, you can configure devices or check their status instantly, without the time and expense of traveling to the device’s physical location.

Flexible Deployment
System Manager can operate over a dedicated management VLAN for maximum security. It operates equally well over the network or Internet, providing remote management from anywhere on the corporate network or in the world.
  • Provides a central console to manage any number of iTap devices
  • Group devices by type, department, or other criteria
  • User-friendly GUI interface
  • View device and link status
  • Configure iTap
  • Enable/disable iTap ports
  • Secured with password and isolated management port
  • SNMP compatible
  • Runs on any Windows XP, Windows 98, and Windows 2000 computer or workstation

Web Manager

Web Manager is a Web browser-based management console that enables remote management of Net Optics iTap?enabled devices from anywhere in the world. Web Manger empowers you to configure devices or check their status whether you are in your office, at home, or on the road. Besides convenience,remote management also helps reduce the time and cost spent walking, driving, or flying between buildings and locations to service devices. Simply type the IP address of the device into the address bar of your favorite Web browser to connect to the device as if it was within arm’s reach.

Web Manager runs on all of the popular Web browsers including Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.Pages are lightweight and load quickly, even over wireless connections.Simple forms make configuring devices easy, and reveal complete device status at a glance.

Each iTap?enabled device holds the Web Manager page specific to its model type. Whether the taskat hand is to check device status, disable a port, or change an iMatrix Switch connection, Web Manager gets the job done in just a few quick mouse clicks.
