Description

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.

Benefits

  • Consolidate monitoring tools to reduce management expenses and lower tool costs
  • Monitor one or more 10/100/1000 copper or 1G fiber links with single interface (capture NIC) tools
  • Aggregation – combine multiple network links or channels into one stream of data
  • Regeneration – Share data sources by copying streams of data to multiple tools
  • Eliminates reliance on SPAN ports

Additional Features

  • Fault tolerant – passive bypass feature for copper links and totally passive tapping for fiber links
  • Models with SFP monitor ports support both copper and fiber SFPs
  • SNMP v2 and v3 supported traps notify of link down or power supply failure states
  • Redundant power supplies included
  • SSH enabled
  • Easy to deploy remotely and/or as a non-managed device
