USR4503 | 10/100/1000 Copper Aggregation TAP

USR4503 | 10/100/1000 Copper Aggregation TAP


Full Duplex Gigabit Access for Single Interface Monitoring

• Supports both Full & Half duplex
• Replication when in Aggregation mode – Allows 2 separate monitoring devices to receive the same bi-directional data from the link
• Passive – Traffic will continue to flow over the network without a delay during power outage
• Invisible – Both USR4503 TAP and attached monitors are not visible on the network
• Power over Ethernet – Allows power to flow between network ports

Product Description

The USR4503 10/100/1000 Copper Aggregation TAP (Test Access Point) eliminates SPAN (Switched Port Analyzer) port contention, oversubscription, and configuration errors with full duplex monitoring, simple installation, and reliable access to your Gigabit Ethernet segments. The USR4503 TAP faultlessly combines and processes both the TX and RX streams of data into a single data stream allowing any connected monitoring device (analyzer, IDS, probe) to receive a full-duplex stream of data with only one NIC. Improve visibility with two monitor ports sending identical copies to separate network tools for simultaneous monitoring and analyzing. For dual-receive tools, a half-duplex option is available for individual TX and RX streams. Ideal for security applications or anywhere you need non-intrusive dedicated access to your network links for advanced or consolidated monitoring.

Key Benefits
• Provide a secure 24×7 point of access for network tools or for troubleshooting
• Passive devices and will not be a single point of failure
• Make copies of data in real-time with very little or no traffic delay
• Low cost and a highly reliable way to provide data non-intrusively to network tools
• Can be used to provide the physical layer traffic to other aggregation devices complementing
the collection from a SPAN or mirror port captures for improved analysis
• Retain use of ports on network switches
• Improve network performance when used with market leading packet analyzing software/hardware tools

Key Features

• Full duplex monitoring, even with single interface monitoring tools
• Half duplex monitoring allows two monitoring ports to see full line rate traffic
• Regeneration to multiple tools provides access to the same links for system redundancy, testing and advanced monitoring applications
• Improved visibility into the network – including VLAN tags
• Ideal for Intrusion Detection System (IDS) applications
Plug and play means simple and fast deployments
• Auto negotiates settings for 10/100/1000 Mbps network speeds
