Today, there are two opposing approaches to network connectivity: SPAN ports vs. Network Test Access Points or Traffic Access Points (TAPs), first engineered in the 1970s.

Are you still using a SPAN port for network visibility? Industry best practice is to use a Network TAP (test access point). Network security and management professionals today must have 100% access to network traffic. This whitepaper will cover the value of test and traffic access points and remove all the misinformation.

• Which technology captures 100% full duplex traffic

• What are today’s lawful intercept requirements

• What happens when packets are dropped because a SPAN port is oversubscribed
