In-Line Fiber TAPs

Tapping is an integral part of thorough network analysis and optimization. Profitap Fiber Optic TAPs are designed to enable flawless in-line monitoring of 1G, 10G, 40G and 100G fiber optic networks. The quality of fiber optic connections is intrinsically linked to the quality of the fiber used. To ensure the highest possible quality, all of our products exclusively utilize optical fiber that's been handpicked and extensively tested by industry experts. Not only are our TAPs of exceptional quality, they are also incredibly cost-efficient. Ask us for a quote and you might just be surprised at how affordable unparalleled quality can be.

LC & SC TAPs

Profitap LC & SC TAPs are the ultimate solution for monitoring 1G and 10G fiber optic networks. TAP density ranges from a single TAP link up to our best-selling, high-density 8 link TAP (up to 24 TAP links in 1U rack space). Profitap Fiber TAPs use high-quality zirconia sleeve LC and SC adapters to achieve superior performance. Our F1x3L Dual Output TAP enables the monitoring of a single link by two monitoring systems simultaneously.

Regeneration TAP

The Profitap Regeneration TAP allows for the tapping of a single LC fiber optic link by up to four monitoring systems. Instead of splitting the signal as many times as an output is needed, the Regeneration TAP only splits it once, before regenerating the monitor signal four times. This greatly mitigates the weakening of the optical signal that results from excessive splitting.

40G Bidirectional TAP

The Profitap 40G BiDi fiber optic TAP was specifically designed for the monitoring of Cisco 40Gb bidirectional links.

The new Cisco 40G BiDi standard quadruples the speed in standard dual LC (OM3-4, 10Gb) data center cabling, thereby allowing for a cost effective migration from 10Gb to 40Gb. This quadrupling of speed is achieved by doubling the speed and using bidirectional technology instead of unidirectional.

The Cisco 40G bidirectional standard uses 2 parallel multi-mode fiber strands to transmit the signal, rendering standard tapping systems inadequate for the monitoring of such links. The Profitap 40G BiDi fiber optic TAP transmits traffic to monitoring tools from all fiber optic signals, enabling total visibility over your network.

For complete security and optimum performance, the 40G BiDi is fully passive, requiring no power, and uses exclusively OM4 fiber optic cabling and low insertion loss zirconia sleeve adapters. The 40G BiDi exists in single and triple density models (up to 9 TAP points in a 1U footprint).
