PCIe 10/100/1000Base-T Failsafe Network TAP Card

DCP-1004 / DCP-1004L

The DCP-1004 / DCP-1004L from Dualcomm is a special card that helps you capture and analyze data on your computer network. It’s designed to be affordable and works with a regular computer to create a powerful network monitoring system.

The DCP-1004 has two monitor ports that each copy the network traffic in one direction. This is useful in situations where there is a lot of data, as it helps prevent data loss.

On the other hand, the DCP-1004L has two monitor ports that copy the network traffic in both directions and combines it. This is great for getting a complete picture of the network activity.

PCIe 10/100/1000Base-T Failsafe Network TAP Card

The PCIe 10/100/1000Base-T Failsafe Network TAP Card enhances network monitoring capabilities, seamlessly integrates into existing systems, and provides versatile options for capturing data. With its power-failsafe bypass, network connectivity remains uninterrupted even in power loss situations. The Network TAP, designed as a PCI Express Card is compatible with PoE, simplifying power management. It offers a cost-effective solution compared to dedicated monitoring appliances and ensures reliable and accurate data capture. Additionally, it scales easily to accommodate growing network requirements.

Key Features:

  • PCIe card design: The TAP card is built as a PCI Express Card, allowing seamless integration with your existing computer system for efficient packet capturing and sniffing.
  • Two monitor ports: This TAP card provides you with the flexibility of choosing between aggregation or non-aggregation outputs. You can use the two monitor ports to capture data from multiple sources or specific locations in your network.
  • Power-failsafe bypass: With the power failsafe bypass feature, you can ensure uninterrupted link connectivity even if the TAP card loses power. This is particularly crucial for critical network paths where consistent connectivity is vital.
  • PoE compatibility: The TAP card is compatible with Power over Ethernet (PoE). It allows PoE pass-through between two inline ports, enabling you to deliver power to PoE-powered devices through the shared network cable from your PoE capable link partner.


  • Cost-effective solution: The PCIe 10/100/1000Base-T Failsafe Network TAP Card card offers a budget-friendly option for creating a comprehensive network monitoring and analysis system using a standard computer. You don’t have to invest in expensive dedicated appliances.
  • Enhanced data capture: By providing both aggregation and non-aggregation monitor ports, this TAP card gives you the flexibility to capture and analyze data from different perspectives, catering to diverse monitoring requirements.
  • Reliable connectivity: The power-failsafe bypass ensures that even in unforeseen power loss situations, your network connectivity remains intact. This reliability is essential for critical network paths where uninterrupted data flow is crucial.
  • Seamless power delivery: With PoE pass-through support, you can conveniently power PoE devices without the need for additional power sources. This feature simplifies your network setup and reduces clutter.
