The G-TAP M Series is a family of high-density passive fiber optical network TAPs which require no power source to operate. By splitting the light optically, the G-TAP M Series enables network operators to passively monitor full duplex fiber optic links without impacting network traffic. Up to 36 full duplex links can be tapped in a 1RU space, allowing for more visibility with less space and lower costs.

The G-TAP M Series network TAPs utilize advanced thin-film technology to minimize insertion loss and maximize consistency across optical transceiver vendors when deploying within the narrow optical budgets of multimode fiber networks. High-capacity 10 gigabit networks require a tapping solution with the highest possible density and quality to detect security threats and performance issues throughout the network. No special cabling or patch cords are required, even for 40Gb and 100Gb deployments.

The G-TAP M Series is a modular platform with a 1RU rack-mountable chassis that holds up to 6 TAP modules. The modularity not only provides flexibility in choosing link speed, fiber type, and split ratios, but also provides space for future growth of visibility for network security and performance monitoring.

The patch panel module converts a 40Gb SR4 MPO link into four 10Gb SR LC links (and vice versa) and is a convenient, organized alternative to using breakout cable: simply connect an MPO-12 patch cord from the 40Gb QSFP+ port to the patch panel.
