History and Selection of Copper TAPs
Selecting Network TAPs
Software Management for Taps and NPBs
In previous articles we reviewed the overall topic of management interfaces to Taps and NPBs and in subsequent chapters took a deep dive into the topics of Fault Management and Configuration Management. In this chapter we will focus on Software Management and its related topics. Subsequent chapters will cover other management topics including accounting, performance monitoring, security and remote access.

Insiders Scoop on Configuration and Provisioning for Taps and NPBs
In my previous articles we reviewed the overall topic of management interfaces to Taps and NPBs and took a deeper dive into Fault Management. In this chapter we will focus on the areas of configuration and provisioning management topics. Subsequent chapters will cover other management topics including software management, accounting, performance monitoring, security and remote access.
Fault Management for Network Taps and Network Packet Brokers
This article is the second in a multi-part series on the management of Taps and Network Packet Brokers. This chapter focuses on Fault Management including Detection, Correlation/Aggregation, Diagnosis/Isolation, Restoration, and Resolution.
Management system interfaces for TAPs and Network Packet Brokers
When looking at some of the simpler network device types such as taps and network packet brokers there are a few factors involved in trying to determine which management system interfaces should be supported and to what extent.
Get improved visibility into high speed network connections
The FTP-1516 can reduce the total cost of implementing a monitoring solution by allowing a 40G link to be monitored without using expensive 40G ports. The FTP-1516 allows you to leverage existing 10G monitoring ports and can be a cost effective alternative to upgrading to a 40G monitoring solution.
Is there a benefit to using Network TAPs instead of SPAN ports?
When it comes to monitoring network traffic, there are two main choices: use a network TAP (test access point) or mirror the SPAN port of a network switch. This article helps you decide the best tactic.
Network TAPs and Government Surveillance
Electronic surveillance is a vital tool for State and Federal law enforcement, regulatory agencies, the Intelligence community, and a broad array of other government entities. Find out how network taps enable and improve network surveillance.
