If you want access to complete network data by deploying a simple tool which is easy to install and scalable at the same time, then Cubro’s new high-density Copper TAP – FlexTAP 10/100/1000 is an ideal solution. The network TAP offers the smallest footprint – 21 links in one 19 inches and 3 U size and has best price and performance compared to any other similar solution available in the market.
10/100/1000 Aggregation and Filter application
The image 1 shows a fully equipped FlexTAP chassis and the Cubro EX5-2 can support tapping, aggregation and filtering up to 21 links in one 19 inches 3 U small footprints. A similar solution from other vendors needs double the size compared to the Cubro solution.
Fastest switchover time
The fast switchover time prevents activation of link protection mechanism because the switching time is so fast that the link partners do not recognize the switch over. As a result, only a few packets are dropped. For example, while tapping a sip link the call stays established during switchover and only a word is missing. This is a big advantage, especially for operators.
This fast switchover is realized without using battery inside the TAP and it is another advantage because a battery is a serviced item and adds additional issues and cost to the system.
The flexible and easy to install solution consists of 4 parts:
1) 10/100/1000 TAP blade
2) 19 inches rack
3) Power module (230 V DC or 48 DC)
4) Fan module
