Garland Technology LLC, a specialist in test access point (TAP) equipment, has released a new passive 28/56 Fiber TAP. The 1U chassis can hold up to 56 TAPs with LC optical connectors. “This is the highest density fiber TAP available on the market, granting 56 TAPs in a single 1U chassis,” said Chris Bihary, CEO and co-founder of Garland Technology. “The 28/56, like all of our TAPs, is passive with zero network interruption. It can help any organization gain the network visibility they need to control, manage, and secure their network.” The model can support over 10 Tbps of traffic while using up only 1U of rack space. “Other products boast 20-something TAPs per 1U chassis, but Garland Technology has outdone its competitors with this ultra-high density model,” Bihary added. CTO and co-founder Jerry Dillard said that the 28/56 Fiber TAP is ideal for organizations with evolving needs. “We knew from the start that we needed to develop a high-density solution with flexibility in mind,” he said. “We have to meet the different network sizes, speeds and specs of our customers.” To be able to cater to different needs, the model supports 1G, 10G, 40G, and 100G networks using multimode and singlemode fiber. Garland Technology says the 28/56 Fiber TAP offers access to the network for network monitoring equipment; analyzers, probes, and sniffers; security intrusion protection and detection systems (IPS/IDS), data capture and storage; lawful interception, forensics, data loss prevention; and much more. The company says the product has already been proven in the market by several financial, telecommunication, and mobile carrier customers. The TAPs have been tested, certified, and installed in a major US bank, a large US telecommunications company, and a large mobile carrier in Canada.
