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.
