Selecting Network TAPs
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
