Tap Into the Health of Your Network

1,304 views

Published on

Best practice network deployments make use of Taps to route, aggregate, and regenerate traffic that is then sent to these tools to make use of their full capabilities. In addition, bypass Taps are used to ensure a failed monitoring appliance doesn’t bring your network traffic to a standstill. Taps form the foundation for implementing an intelligent access and monitoring infrastructure.

Tap Into the Health of Your Network

  1. 1. Tapping Into The Health of Your Network<br />Intelligent Network Access and Monitoring Solutions<br />
  2. 2. Presenter<br />Peter Ingebrigtsen<br />Field Application Engineer, Net Optics, Inc.<br />Peter joined Net Optics after running his own network consulting firm, where he helped customers reduce their carbon footprint by optimizing their network resources. He also Managed all the networking devices and configured monitoring solutions for customers.<br />Recently, Peter was instrumental in configuring and facilitating our recent participation in the Interop NOC. <br />Additionally, Peter will be participating in our trade show booth at next month’s Cisco Live! event in Las Vegas, if you’ll be attending you can stop by Booth #1841 and ask Peter any follow-up questions. <br />Peter’s additional claims to fame include defeating rebel forces in a galaxy far far away, and he was also a runner-up for making an appearance on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’.<br />

Regeneration Taps<br />RMON<br />Analyzer<br />Forensic<br />IDS<br />Regeneration Tap<br />Switch<br />Switch<br />Firewall<br />The Regeneration Tap provides permanent, in-line access ports to monitor all full-duplex traffic without data stream interference.<br />The network signal is regenerated so that multiple monitoring devices can have real-time, simultaneous access to all traffic.<br />Regeneration Taps send duplicate traffic streams to several monitoring tools<br />Deployment: In-line<br />Benefit:<br /><ul><li>Allows a variety of monitoring tools to be applied to a common stream of traffic
  18. 18. Optimizes use of each tool</li></li></ul><li>Aggregator Taps<br />The Link Aggregator Tap provides multiple, permanent, in-line access ports to monitor all full-duplex traffic without data interference.<br />RMON<br />Analyzer<br />Forensic<br />IDS<br />Switch<br />Switch<br />Switch<br />Switch<br />Using a single NIC, the monitoring devices receive all combined traffic from Side A and Side B, including physical layer errors.<br />Aggregator Taps combine multiple traffic streams and send it to monitoring tools<br />Deployment: In-line<br />Benefit:<br /><ul><li>Single tool able to monitor redundant link paths for total visibility</li></ul>Link Aggregator<br />
