"...we have a commitment to constantly push the envelope to design solutions with intelligence, flexibility and scalability,” - Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON

APCON, the industry leader in intelligent network monitoring and security support solutions, today announced at Cisco Live 2013 the launch of INTELLATAP 8 port tap with advanced on-board monitoring services as well as expanded data analysis and storage features across all of APCON’s monitoring switches.

APCON’s INTELLATAP 8 port tap with two additional monitoring ports incorporates the advantages of optical tapping and native aggregation, filtering and other advanced services. This unique capability enables customers to easily connect more network monitoring points to existing tools without requiring additional switching equipment, resulting in lower entry cost and less signal degradation.

The new INTELLATAP blade improves both reliability and security with full duplex passive optical taps. As a managed tap, it offers statistics, diagnostics, and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) capabilities, while maintaining the fail-safe characteristics of a passive tap.

Additionally, APCON continues to build upon its flexible and scalable monitoring solutions by expanding INTELLASTORE, a network monitoring switch with built-in Wireshark network analyzer tool to support all APCON Series 3000 switches.

APCON’s INTELLASTORE intelligent monitoring features with 1.5TB of on-board data storage and built-in analysis software, allow customers to monitor remote locations that can either aggregate multiple data sources or transfer data to the central analysis point, or analyze the data directly on site. This integration of advanced aggregation and filtering capabilities with data storage and analysis is another industry first.

“As a pioneer in the intelligent network monitoring space, we have a commitment to constantly push the envelope to design solutions with intelligence, flexibility and scalability,” said Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON. “By expanding our tap portfolio and INTELLASTORE features, customers have more options for monitoring architecture deployments, enhanced analysis, and storage options for vast economic savings.”

The new hardware will be supported with new system Firmware release in early Q3 2013. This Firmware release will increase switch bandwidth, provide flexibility on bandwidth control with software selectable multi-rate optics, and simplify operations with a one-button upgrade and restore process.


APCON develops innovative, scalable technology solutions to enhance network monitoring, support IT traffic analysis, and streamline IT network management and security. The company serves as the industry leader for state-of-the-art IT data aggregation, filtering, and network switching products, as well as leading-edge management-software support. Organizations in over 50 countries currently depend on APCON solutions in their network infrastructures.
