Monitoring Access For Gigabit Copper Tools With Fiber Networks

Gigabit Fiber To 1000Base-TX Media Converter Taps

Keysight's Gigabit Fiber to 1000Base-TX Tap simplifies connecting Gigabit copper monitoring and security devices to Gigabit fiber network links. Gigabit Fiber to 1000Base-TX Taps support passive monitoring of Gigabit links at 1000 Mbps.

Transparent Access

Gigabit Fiber to 1000Base-TX Taps establish permanent passive access ports without introducing a point of failure or disturbing other network connections. These passive Taps deliver full-duplex monitoring with zero impact on network traffic around the clock.

Security and Visibility

Without an IP address, monitoring devices are isolated from the network, dramatically reducing their exposure to attacks. However, the monitoring device connected to the Tap still sees all traffic as if it were inline, including Layer 2 and Layer 3 errors.

Reliability

For extra uptime protection, our Gigabit Fiber to 1000Base-TX Taps offer redundant power connections. Should the primary power source fail, the Tap automatically switches to the backup power source. Power LEDs on the front of the Tap indicate the current power source – even if power is lost and reapplied, there is always zero delay to network traffic.
