With its many features, the SmartNA-X 1U Chassis is the most flexible chassis available on the TAP market today. Housing up to four SmartNA-X modules this 1U device allows you to add a permanent TAP solution into your datacenter while still allowing for total flexibility.
The SmartNA-X 1U Chassis allows you to TAP up to eight network links. Aggregate and/or filter all of the data to single or multiple monitoring ports or TAP a single link and regenerate the traffic to up to 14 monitoring ports. Because each modular TAP in the SmartNA –X System is fully configurable, there are endless possibilities for configuring the system to meet the specific needs of your datacenter.
The SmartNA-X chassis supports five independently operating TAP modules that are hot-swappable, fully configurable and available in various configurations of copper, single mode fiber, multi-mode fiber, and SFP/SFP+ ports. Slot 1 supports 1/10-Gbit/s TAP modules (colored red), slots 2, 3 and 4 support 1-Gbit/s TAP modules (colored blue). Slot 5 (rear) supports 10-Gbit/s TAP modules (2 ports only). Four ports on each module are used to TAP live traffic and direct it to output ports where network tools can be used to capture and monitor your network data. The management port provides access to the web UI and CLI, from where system and module settings can be managed.
