CARRIER GRADE DESIGN
FASTEST SWITCHOVER TIME, DEPENDING ON THE PHYS IN THE TAPPED NODES, OUR TAP CAN SWITCH W/O TO DROP THE LINK
10/100/1000 AND 10/100 MODELS
10/100 TAP IS ENTIRELY PASSIVE AND DOES NOT INFLUENCE THE LIVE LINK IN ANY WAY (WHETHER THE TAP IS POWERED ON OR NOT)
POE PASS THROUGH
10/100/1000 TAP FEATURES A USB INTERFACE PROVIDING DIAGNOSTIC INFORMATION
Cubro offers copper TAPs in 10/100/1000 models as well as passive 10/100 models. The advanced Cubro 10/100/1000 Copper Network TAP is an all-new development based on the latest PHY chips. These devices are PoE transparent across the link ports. The new “B” version of the 10/100/1000 features a USB interface that the user can connect to and retrieve detailed information about every port on the TAP as well as the TAP status itself.
The new “B” version is also able to gather information about the live link connection as well as about the configuration of the link partners (e.g. duplex, mismatch issues, M/S conflicts…). This information can also be retrieved via the USB interface allowing the Cubro TAP to assist the user in finding mistakes in the configuration of the link partners. Finally, depending on the PHY chips used in the tapped nodes the new Cubro 10/100/1000(B) TAP is attached to, the TAP can switch states without dropping the live link at all. This helps in mitigating the issue of link renegotiation of the tapped nodes that can occur with copper TAPs in a fail open scenario.
