• Aggregator

Simple and ultra-efficient, aggregators provide access to full-duplex links using just a single NIC on the monitoring or analyzer tool. Products combine each side of a network link and copy aggregated data to one or more monitoring ports. Net Optics offers two families of aggregator taps to fit your specific needs:

Port Aggregator Taps

Combine traffic from one network link and copy to either one or two monitoring tools.

Link Aggregator Taps

Combine traffic from 1 to 24 network links for up to 24 monitoring tools.
