Network Tap | Network Monitoring
Network taps are passive network components for analysing your critical network data. Network taps allow you to conveniently and reliably channel all your traffic without affecting the active network connection. This creates a copy of your network traffic, which you can evaluate using the appropriate tools. You get a complete overview of all transactions and you’ll have continuous access to your network data with full transparency.

Savvius products allow you to quickly see the health status of your network across all locations! You can quickly identify communication errors, avoid problems before they occur and greatly minimise the number of site visits a technician has to make. You can easily recognise trends and actively counteract these as and when the need arises. This improves the quality of your IT service no end.
Where is the problem? | Is it a network or an application error?
Does the following situation sound familiar? There’s a problem affecting the user and prompt action is needed!
A network or application failure is always associated with costs and damages your company image. The financial cost of the disruption depends on the time factors involved and the network structure’s complexity. Today, topologies and network architectures often require more intensive analysis to find the cause of the incident. The most important thing is to get a diagnosis and to do this you have to know the applications and their paths on the network. A distributed environment with highly complex connections may complicate fault diagnosis.
Is it the internal network, the connection or a problem with an application?
When you have the right tools, this question is fairly easy to solve. You need a lot of information to be able to constantly monitor the performance of your network and applications. When taps are installed in the correct network locations they help you to evaluate all the data without the need to alter it. This gives you valuable information that helps you to identify trends early on, so you can proactively combat potential bottlenecks and network problems.
Network traffic generators for performance testing
Use of network packet generators can easily identify performance problems by creating custom network loads and artificially manipulating the amount of data on the line.
Testing specific data volumes, packet sizes and many other parameters allows you to test your network under various stressful loads.
This method helps you to identify sporadic errors that occur due to performance problems, so you can see the specific effects that different stressors have on critical application performance in real time. You can also measure:
How much load can your network actually handle without affecting important functions?
- How much load your network can deal with without sacrificing important features
- How this relates to latency, which plays an important role for many applications (VoIP, etc.)
- When you experience packet loss
Are you preparing to roll out a new application on your network but want to make sure that this will work smoothly and existing business-critical applications won’t be adversely affected? We’re happy to help you make the right assessments and will work with you to create your own network performance concept.
We can help you with these and other issues. You’ll benefit from our years of experience and will receive professional support!

BIG Data is all the rage and 40G/100G technologies are no longer indispensable. Higher speeds bring new challenges for network administrators. The capacity of analysis tools are limited, yet due to compliance, security, forensics or other reasons, they’re forced to capture network data for analysis. Furthermore, applications behave differently in the WAN environment than the LAN, therefore a monitoring solution with the possibility of carrying out performance measurements in real time is an important component in the analysis of business-critical applications.
Are you planning to roll out a new application, but want to make sure that this new application works smoothly and does not adversely affect existing business-critical applications? We offer this aa a special service in which we simulate client or server traffic and observe the effect on your network. Here, response times are measured end to end as the network is subjected to a stress test. By doing so, we collect relevant details and gain valuable information that we can present to you very clearly in the results.
Are you seeing problems with application response times or even experiencing network outages? Then we help you in the diagnosis and correction of these problems. We look at the cause and get to the root of the problem. Even small errors can have a great impact on networks. A misconfigured or poorly maintained DNS server can affect your network speed tremendously. Network taps help to analyze the data and pass it to the Analyzer safely, without affecting the network line.
The term ‘TAP’ is an acronym that stands for ‘Test Access Port’. A Tap creates a passive access point on the network, so network data transmitted via the cable can be read for analysis purposes. Taps also copy critical network packets with CRC errors, which is of great importance for debugging or analysis. read more
A port aggregation Tap is different from the normal Tap in that the coupled-full-duplex TX & RX data are aggregated for a single output port. A monitoring port gathers the data needed for analysis so the monitoring device doesn’t need to use any additional interfaces. read more
Regeneration Taps work like regular network Taps but they provide monitored data to multiple analysis tools simultaneously. Data gathered from the network can be monitored by several monitoring tools at the same time for different purposes. read more
Bypass Taps (also called bypass switches) are looped directly into the network cable infrastructure to ensure an uninterrupted network connection. They increase the availability of your data line during the operation of active components sitting directly on the line. These devices, which are usually IPS or WAF systems, are designed to pick up traffic directly on the line and analyse it. This means that they’re directly installed on the line. read more
