The G-TAP® A Series are managed, active TAPs for 1Gb and 10Gb networks and Gigamon’s “Always On” architecture. Battery backup power and fail-to-wire capabilities prevent network downtime. SNMP traps alert to changes in power or link state of the network or monitor ports. G-TAP A Series supports 10/100/1000BASE-T, 10Gb Direct Attached Copper, and optical network wavelength and mode conversion.
The G-TAP A Series active network TAPs mirror 100% of network traffic including errors, non-standard network traffic, and network packets that do not conform to established protocol standards enabling detailed analysis, security and monitoring. The product’s unique design constantly charges the integrated backup battery while using any of the primary forms of power (PoE, AC, DC), which allows it to assume power load in the event of primary power failure. The G-TAP A Series’ intelligent network monitoring provides SNMP trap alerts when the TAP is utilizing the backup battery, power levels drop, existing links are removed, or when new links are added. G-TAP A Series is one component of the Gigamon Visibility Platform, a next-generation infrastructure providing pervasive, intelligent visibility across the distributed enterprise.
