PCIe 10/100/1000Base-T Network Tap Card
DCP-1004 / DCP-1004L
The DCP-1004 / DCP-1004L from Dualcomm is a 10/100/1000Base-T Network Tap built as a PCI Express Card, which is purposely designed as a cost-effective packet capturing/sniffing component for use with an off-the-shelf computer to build an integrated appliance for various network monitoring and analysis applications.
The DCP-1004 provides a pair of non-aggregation monitor ports, each outputs a copy of inline traffic in only one direction. DCP-1004 is preferred for high data throughput situations to avoid possible packet loss due to port oversubscription.
The DCP-1004L provides two aggregation monitor ports, each of which outputs a copy of aggregated inline traffic in both directions.
Both DCP-1004L/DCP-1004 supports power Failsafe Bypass by which the link connectivity will still be maintained when it loses its power. As such, it can be deployed in a critical path in a network. Furthermore, it also supports PoE pass-through between two inline ports. As such, a PoE powered device can still receive power delivered over the shared network cable from its PoE capable link partner.
Key Features and Benefits:
- 10/100/1000Base-T Network Tap built as PCIe card for use with a 10/100/1000Base-T link
- Two monitor ports for either aggregation or non-aggregation outputs
- Power-failsafe bypass
- Compatible with PoE. PoE pass-through between two inline ports
