Gigabit Ethernet Copper TAPs

Tapping is an integral part of thorough network analysis and optimization. That's why we've designed our signature Profitap Gigabit Ethernet TAPs as your comprehensive solution for monitoring 10/100/1000BaseT networks. Our TAPs are flawlessly designed to synthesize maximum performance and maximum security into a single, superior TAP.











100% Visibility

Profitap Gigabit Ethernet TAPs seamlessly duplicate full-duplex 10/100/1000 Mbps traffic at wire speed. Our TAPs provide monitoring devices with traffic as if they were in-line, allowing them to view all 7 layers; including packets of all sizes and types, as well as low-level errors. Profitap Copper TAPs are completely IEEE 802.3/802.3af, VoIP and PoE compliant; while performing smoothly at distances of over 100 meters. Front LEDs display the presence of redundant power, network and monitor link activity, and indicate whether the TAP is in speed negotiation mode or the speed at which it is operating.

100% Security

Profitap Copper TAPs are non-intrusive, have no IP address and isolate monitoring devices from the network to ensure complete stealth and security. Once in place, our TAPs allow monitoring devices to be connected and disconnected as desired, with no impact to the network link.

100% Fail-safe

Profitap Copper TAPs introduce no point of failure to the network. They are designed for redundant powering, which allows a second power supply to activate if the first were to fail. In case of complete power failure, our Gigabit Ethernet TAPs guarantee that the link remains operational by instantly switching to a fully passive mode.

Our renowned 'No Break' feature dramatically reduces failover time, consequently reducing the chances of Spanning Tree (STP) reconvergence. Instant Link technology allows our TAPs to instantly resume the link once power is restored.

To ensure maximum safety and transparency, any network link failure from one side is instantly transmitted to the other, allowing the network to take appropriate action, such as the activation of a redundant path, while the TAP stays available for auto-negotiation.

Fast Ethernet Copper TAPs

Our Fast Ethernet TAPs boast the same array of features as the Gigabit series, with the difference that, as they are designed for 10/100BaseT networks, the network link is fully passive, ensuring a permanent network link at all times with zero failover time or link restoration delay.





Port Replicator

The Profitap Port Replicator enables the optimization of mirrored port (SPAN) usage. The use of port mirroring can have a negative effect on a switch's performance, greatly limiting the number of monitoring ports available on such appliances. The Profitap Port Replicator palliates this problem by duplicating all traffic from a single mirrored port onto 4 monitoring ports.
