The solution for tapping 40 Gb/s
and 100 Gb/s optical links with MTP/MPO connectors
T-30 Optical TAP at a glance
Microtel Innovation T-30 is the solution for tapping 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s optical links with MTP/MPO connectors, both Multi-Mode and Single-Mode. By splitting the ligth optically, it enables passive tapping of full duplex optical links, which avoids any risk for the live network devices to loose the link between one another if power is lost. T-30 optical TAP mirrors 100% of network traffic, including errors, malformed and non-standard packets, so making possible detailed analysis, security and monitoring.
T-30 uses MTP/MPO connectors; it is 1/3U high, so making possible to host up to 3 T-30 in 1U space. Two versions are available:
- T-30 DUAL links device, to tap 2 optical multimode or singlemode fiber links, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s
- T-30 QUAD links device, to tap 4 optical multimode or singlemode fiber links, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s
Available split ratio have been decided in order to provide the light margins which is usually necessary to the monitored traffic. They are: 50/50 for multimode links, 60/40 for 100 Gb/s singlemode links, 60/40 and 70/30 for 40 Gb/s singlemode links. T-30 is hosted in an aluminium rack, which ensures a robust and reliable solution from a mechanical point of view. In Ethernet world the T-30 optical TAP, combined with Microtel’s Aster Packet Brokers and GTP Balancer and Offloaders, is the best solution to optimize network monitoring systems.
