Explore Cubro’s Electrical TAPs

Cubro offers copper TAPs in 10/100/1000 models as well as passive 10/100 models. The advanced Cubro 10/100/1000 Copper Network TAP is an all-new development based on the latest PHY chips. These devices are PoE transparent across the link ports. The new “B” version of the 10/100/1000 features a USB interface that the user can connect to and retrieve detailed information about every port on the TAP as well as the TAP status itself.

The new “B” version is also able to gather information about the live link connection as well as about the configuration of the link partners (e.g. duplex, mismatch issues, M/S conflicts...). This information can also be retrieved via the USB interface allowing the Cubro TAP to assist the user in finding mistakes in the configuration of the link partners. Finally, depending on the PHY chips used in the tapped nodes the new Cubro 10/100/1000(B) TAP is attached to, the TAP can switch states without dropping the live link at all. This helps in mitigating the issue of link renegotiation of the tapped nodes that can occur with copper TAPs in a fail open scenario.

Copper TAP 10/100-R3

The Cubro fast ethernet 10/100 Copper TAP provides passive monitoring access to a single full-duplex network. The copper network TAP provides the highest performing and most costeffective access to devices for passively monitoring your network. The TAP has 100 % throughput, very low delay and fully transparent, even for layer 1 and layer 2 faults.

The copper TAP, intended for permanent installation in the entire network, allows the user to plug and play multiple monitoring devices without disrupting the existing network connection. Additionally, the TAP provides an invaluable frontline of defence by preventing the monitoring device from being seen or hacked by intruders. Designed to maintain network connectivity during power loss, this TAP also consistently delivers zero data loss while replicating network traffic to the monitoring ports for cable lengths of up to the 100m IEEE 802.3 specification limit.

Highlights

  • Carrier-grade design
  • Fastest switch over time, depending on the Phys in the tapped nodes, our TAP can switch w/0 to drop the link
  • 10/100/1000 and 10/100 models
  • 10/100 TAP is entirely passive and does not influence the live link in any way (whether the TAP is powered or not)
  • POE pass-through
  • 10/100/1000 TAP features a USB interface providing diagnostic information

Copper TAP 10/100/1000-R3

The Cubro 10/100/1000 Copper TAP allows the uninterrupted passage of full duplex data over standard Category 5/6 copper network cable. Featuring auto negotiating between 10Mbps, 100Mbps and 1000Mbps, this TAP duplicates the network signals, including any existing physical errors to the transmit only monitoring ports.

This advanced 10/100/1000 Copper TAP is a fully new development based on the latest PHY chips. There are some special add-ons available like PoE transparent (PoE = Power over Ethernet)

Converter TAPs

The Cubro Converter TAP converts traffic from optical Gigabit Ethernet links to an SFP output. With its passive connection to the network, it does not influence the traffic of the optical network link while allowing complete access to the traffic via the copper 1000 B-T monitoring port. Cubro provides a cost-effective, flexible small device that converts the incoming traffic to an additional output port. The Cubro Converter TAPs use SFP or SFP+ modules giving the user maximum flexibility. It is possible to change or add SFPs during operation without interrupting other ports (hot-swap). Moreover, it is possible to use non-vendor specific SFPs: SM, MM, COPPER, CWDM, and/or BiDi in any combination.

The path from the input to the output ports is fault-transparent. If the link on the input port goes down then the output ports follow with a short delay. The path from the input to the output ports is layer 1 to 7 transparent. Any error on the input port will be copied to all output ports.
