Dual-Link GbE Copper and Fiber Network Tap
The ETAP-2206 from Dualcomm is a dual-link gigabit Network Tap with two monitor ports. Each of the two monitor port outputs a copy of aggregated full-duplex traffic of two gigabit Ethernet links. It can be used to monitor a GbE copper link and a GbE fiber link simultaneously with a single monitor port.
One rare feature of ETAP-2206 is that any of the two monitor ports are stacking ports by which multiple units can be interconnected with one another to monitor more than two network links with any of the available monitor ports.
The bETAP-2206 provides a pair of RJ45 ports as a copper inline link interface and a pair of SFP ports as a fiber inline link interface. The pair of RJ45 ports is compatible with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), which is capable of passing PoE inline power between two RJ45 inline ports. As such, a connected PoE powered device (e.g., an PoE IP phone) can still receive the inline power seamlessly from its PoE capable link partner such as a PoE switch.
The two SFP ports of the fiber inline link interface use the standard small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules. Copper SFP modules can also be used to make ETAP-2206 as a network Tap to monitor two gigabit Ethernet links.
ETAP-2206 can be conveniently powered by USB power from a USB host device such as a Laptop computer.
