A fundamental feature of a TAP is the guaranteed decoupling of the monitoring port from the network ports. In our case we use „the LINKSAFE “technology to ensure that. Furthermore, Linksafe guarantees also that the network link is always looped through even if power fails. Our Linksafe function does not include any switching mechanism – the construction of our TAP is like that the main link is always connected and therefore the TAP will not lose any traffic in case of a power fail. Even if the monitoring port gets damaged/destroyed the main link will not be affected.
