Garland Technology

Garland Technology's network access points (TAPs) guarantees precise data monitoring capabilities ensuring 100% packet capture for Riverbed's SteelCentral application performance monitoring (APM) technology. SPAN/Mirror ports can drop packets when oversubscribed, and are often unavailble. A simple, purpose built network TAP will regenerate network traffic to ensure complete visiblity. Garland Technology offers a complete product line of network (TAPs) including: network TAPs that support breakout, aggregation, filtering, regeneration/SPAN and bypass modes; packet brokering and load balancing; all available in portable or 1U or 2U modular chassis systems. Garland network TAPs support all networks, including copper wire in 10/100M, 10/100/1000M and fiber in 1G, 10G, 40G, 100G. Garland’s network TAPs avoid introducing additional software that could be a point of failure to your network - allowing you to see every bit, byte and packet®.
