October 20, 2005 Sunnyvale, CA -- Net Optics has introduced a network tap, designed for use in 10-Gigabit networks, that provides passive access to singlemode LR links for multimode SR devices. The company says its 10 Gigabit LR to SR Converter Tap simplifies the connection of multimode SR security and monitoring devices to long-haul singlemode LR links by combining media conversion and tap technology into a single device.
The company says that, with the product, there is no need for additional media converters or interface cards; the company says the tap comes with all the network and monitor cables needed for quick installation.
"The 10 GigaBit LR to SR Converter Tap is another example of Net Optics' commitment to keeping pace with the latest developments in network topology," says Bob Shaw, CEO of Net Optics. "Not only are we innovating products for the 10 Gigabit revolution, we continue to make our taps easy to use with built-in conversion and cables included."
The company says the product offers 100% traffic visibility on any network link without requiring an IP address; attached monitoring devices remain isolated from the network and are protected from attacks. LEDs show power and link status. Redundant power supplies are available for extra uptime protection; should the primary power source fail, the product's Regeneration Tap automatically switches to the secondary power source.
