Cubro 40 Gb BIDI TAP provides visibility to bidirectional 40 Gbit traffic. The TAPs export monitored traffic gathered from across all four transmit signals, providing complete coverage for analytic and security tools. There are new smart concepts of transporting 40 Gbit over the existing 10 Gbit infrastructure with BIDI QSFP which transports 40 Gbit duplex over only two fibres.
The QSFP multiplex two 10 Gbit lanes to a 20 Gbit stream and sends this over a single fibre (bidirectional). It is a challenge to tap such links, however, with Cubro Packetmaster EX32+ it is possible to tap such a link and break it down to multiple 10 Gbit link. Cubro 40 Gb passive BIDI TAP supports Cisco infrastructures using bidirectional 40 Gbit transceivers. The TAP, fully passive, is completely transparent and adds no delay to the network.
