Get Full Visibility of Your Network with Viavi Observer nTAPs

Viavi Observer nTAPs (Network TAPs) are passive, full-duplex devices, offering complete visibility to monitoring devices regardless of traffic level. They work with the leading management tools for quick and easy deployment. nTAPs are transparent for monitoring critical links, and provide continuous network data flow even if power fails. nTAPs are scalable, modularised, space efficient, and economical.

Use optical nTAPs to send identical copies of critical traffic to network analysers, remote monitoring appliances, forensics tools, and similar devices capable of supporting dual, non-aggregated data streams. For further flexibility, Observer Copper-to-Optical and Optical-to-Copper Conversion nTAPs are available.

Observer TAPs - Aggregation


Transfer network traffic from a full-duplex copper link to a copper analysis or security device in a single stream.

 

Install Observer Aggregator nTAPs on 10 Mb, 100 Mb, or 1 Gb links for quick, anytime access to network traffic. Designed for low-to-moderate utilization full-duplex links, Aggregator nTAPs merge data into single streams for transmission up to two single-receive analysis devices. Industry-leading buffer sizes offer less likelihood of lost packets than SPAN ports to ensure critical traffic reaches analyzers, remote monitoring appliances, and forensics tools. For networks and analyzers of different topologies, an Observer Conversion Aggregator nTAP is available.

 

Observer TAPs - Conversion


Copy traffic from a full-duplex copper link and send it to a copper or optical monitoring device – also available with aggregation functionality

 

Install Observer Conversion nTAPs on 10 Mb, 100 Mb, or 1 Gb links for quick, anytime access to network traffic. When analyzers and similar monitoring devices communicate over different topologies than the network, Optical-to-Copper or Copper-to-Optical nTAPs bridge the gap. Conversion nTAPs make copies of network data, sending one back to the network and the other out for analysis.

 

For single-receive devices, Observer Aggregator Conversion nTAPs merge full-duplex links into single streams for transmission to up to two single-receive analysis devices. Industry-leading buffer sizes offer less likelihood of lost packets than SPAN ports to ensure critical traffic reaches analyzers, remote monitoring appliances, and forensics tools.

Observer TAPs - Copper

 

 

Easily send Ethernet traffic from a full-duplex copper link to a copper monitoring device with Observer Copper TAPs.

 

Install Observer nTAPs on 10 Mb, 100 Mb, or 1 Gb copper links for quick, anytime access to network traffic. Depending on your network, choose 10/100 or 10/100/1000 copper nTAPs to send perfect copies of critical traffic to network analyzers, remote monitoring appliances, forensics tools, and similar dual-receive devices. For further flexibility an Observer Copper-to-Optical Conversion nTAP is available.

Observer TAPs - Optical

 

 

With several options available, you can scale up to 24 modules in one unit of rack with the High-Density Optical TAP (HDOT).

 

Install Observer nTAPs on 1, 10, or 40 Gb single or multi-mode optical links. Or select our newest offering, the Observer High-Density Optical nTAP (HDOT) to mix and match these network speeds or 100 Gb in any combination across 24 modules in a 1U rack.
