Network Instruments Announces Highest Density, Lowest Cost TAP Available

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — (Marketwired) — 08/27/13 — , a developer of (ANPM) solutions and network test access points (TAPs), today announced the release of its (HDO nTAP). Designed for network teams struggling to monitor multiple network points at various speeds while facing limited rack space, the HDO nTAP is a cost and space efficient solution capable of connecting up to 24 optical links of 1 Gb, 10 Gb, 40 Gb, or 100 Gb of traffic in a small 1U rack enclosure.

With the advantage of flexible scalability, the new HDO nTAP is a long-term solution for managing changing network monitoring needs in the field. Organizations can purchase and mix modules of various speeds based upon their existing environments. As they migrate to higher network speeds, such as 10, 40, or 100 Gb, they can incorporate additional modules or replace modules to manage greater capacity links of up to 24 in the same 1U rack.

“The HDO nTAP is purpose-built to address the primary data center challenges network teams face managing visibility and performance — a lack of rack space and handling an ever-changing mix of network links and speeds,” said Charles Thompson, director of product strategy for Network Instruments. “Our new high-density nTAP line increases the number of access points available in a 1U rack by 300% compared to traditional TAPs. Additionally, modularity means customers can quickly upgrade the HDO nTAP to meet new monitoring needs and ensure analysis devices always have full access to traffic regardless of the network pipe size.”

The High-Density Optical nTAP 1U rack and modules are available today for connecting to 1 Gb (single and multi-mode), 10 Gb (single and multi-mode), 40 Gb (single mode), and 100 Gb (single mode) networks.

Network Instruments develops the industry-s most scalable application performance monitoring solutions. Its legacy of Internet Protocol (IP) expertise allows for deeper, more actionable network visibility, so IT teams can resolve issues more quickly. Addressing the network management needs of medium-to-large enterprises through Global 2000 companies, Network Instruments supports today-s important IT initiatives, such as unified communications (UC), cloud, data center consolidation and virtualization, while lowering total cost of ownership.
