ImageStream offers a wide range
of passive network taps for LAN and WAN monitoring
applications. These taps make it possible to monitor
10/100 ethernet and gigabit ethernet LAN traffic,
as well as synchronous serial, T1, E1, HSSI, DS3,
E3, OC3, and OC12 WAN circuits. Passive taps do not
interrupt the flow of network traffic, which makes
it possible to install them in a wide range of locations,
and connect a monitoring station to the taps only
ImageStream monitoring taps are listed below with
a short description for each. If you would like more
specific information on these products, please follow
the associated links.
Ethernet taps are used to monitor fiber or twisted
pair LAN connections. Stand-alone and rackmount versions
Synchronous Serial Tap
The synchronous serial tap is used to monitor serial
connections with data rates up to 4 Mbps. The tap
is used in conjunction with a "Y" cable that provides
different standard serial connectors including V.35,
RS232, and RS422 with EIA530, RS449 or X.21 connectors.
The T1/E1 tap is used to monitor up to two T1 or E1
circuits. The tap also provides bantam connectors
for monitoring data signals that are interconnected
via a patch panel with bantam probes.
The HSSI tap is used to monitor high-speed synchronous
serial interfaces operating at speeds up to 52 Mbps.
DS3 and E3 Taps
The DS3 and E3 taps are used to monitor the data traffic
flowing across DS3 or E3 circuits.
ImageStream's optical taps are used to monitor high-speed
SONET and SDH interfaces operating at 155 Mbps and
622 Mbps, as well as fiber optic ethernet interfaces
operating at 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1 Gbps. Rackmount
and stand alone single mode and multimode versions
