We collect, correlate, organize, and analyze traffic data from all corners of your environment.


Watch over your network with monitoring devices that deliver full access to network traffic.

Simplified and reliable monitoring devices
You need robust monitoring devices that offer full access to network traffic while remaining transparent to the networking infrastructure, thus eliminating disruption to traffic flows or protocol transactions.

Tapping into reliability
With the NetScout TAP family, you avoid over-subscribed SPAN ports and dropped packets, which can lead to low network reliability and are difficult to troubleshoot.

Always-on monitoring of your IT infrastructure
NetScout TAPs provide network-monitoring devices with full access to network traffic. Our monitoring devices offer multiple options for link types and speeds to maximize deployment versatility, and are built for placement on strategic network links to enable comprehensive, always-on monitoring of the IT infrastructure. Because our TAPs are never over-subscribed, they always pass every packet.

Our products include:
NetScout fiber optic TAPs based on passive fiber optic splitters which require no external power
NetScout copper TAPs powered by redundant power supplies with non-disruptive, automatic failover in case of power loss or power supply failure

NetScout TAPs help you:

  • Achieve full and transparent visibility to network links
  • Eliminate the risk of introducing a point of failure when accessing network traffic
  • Facilitate connection to monitoring devices such as NetScout’s nGenius Packet Flow Switches, InfiniStream appliance with Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology, and nGenius Collector

“The IT teams quickly saw the benefit that complete packet-level visibility provides when viewing and analyzing problems.”–Asian Environmental Protection Agency
