T-30 Optical TAP at a glance

Key features
Product description

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.
