Providing unfettered access to all of the bits, bytes and packets flowing through a network is a critical piece of network design. Without it, security appliances, monitoring devices and analytical solutions cannot function optimally – a critical issue in a world where downtime or a security breach could cost millions. Network Test Access Points or Traffic Access Points (Network TAPs) were engineered in the 1970s to address this challenge.
