28/56 High Density Fiber Network TAP

We knew from the start that we needed to develop a high density solution with flexibility in mind.

Garland Technology LLC, the Buffalo, NY and Garland, TX-based TAP manufacturer, has released a new model of fiber TAP with a highest density in the market. The 1U chassis can hold up to 56 TAPs with LC connectors, giving enterprise networks the visibility they need.

“This TAP is the perfect long term solution for organizations with evolving needs,” said Chris Bihary, CEO and Co-founder of Garland Technology. “This is the highest density fiber TAP available on the market, granting 56 TAPs in a single 1U chassis. The 28/56, like all of our TAPs, is passive with zero network interruption. It can help any organization gain the network visibility they need to control, manage, and secure their network.”

The model can support over 10 Terabits per second of traffic while using up only 1U of rack space. Other products boast 20-something TAPs per 1U chassis, but Garland Technology has outdone its competitors with this ultra-high density model.

CTO and Co-founder Jerry Dillard added that he understands the variation in customer needs. “We knew from the start that we needed to develop a high density solution with flexibility in mind,” Dillard said. “We have to meet the different network sizes, speeds and specs of our customers.” He continued, “As usual we placed a great emphasis on quality and reliability.

To be able to cater to different needs, the model supports 1G, 10G, 40G, and 100G networks using multi-mode and single mode fiber.

The 28/56 Fiber TAP offers access to your network for:

  •     Network Monitoring
  •     Analyzers, probes, and sniffers
