Full-Duplex Gigabit Access for complete visibility with a laptop

The USR Gigabit Ethernet Aggregation TAP with USB monitoring provides an easy, convenient interface to rapidly and effectively deploy analysis tools to observe and monitor traffic non-intrusively between two devices on an Ethernet network. Powered over USB 3 or external power supply included with the product for older USB connections. Eliminate SPAN port contention, oversubscription, and configuration errors with full-duplex monitoring, simple installation, and reliable access to your Gigabit Ethernet segments. This TAP faultlessly combines and processes both the TX and RX streams of data into a single data stream allowing any connected monitoring device (analyzer, IDS, probe) to receive a full-duplex stream of data over a USB connection. Ideal for security applications, including link failure propagation for HA designed networks, or anywhere you need non-intrusive dedicated access to your network links for advanced or consolidated monitoring.

Monitoring & Analysis

  • Full-duplex monitoring for single interface monitoring tools running on a laptop
  • Wider range of tools available with USB connection
  • Improved visibility into the network - including VLAN tags

Aggregating Data

  • Monitor all network traffic from two different sources
  • Improve network troubleshooting by viewing both sides of a full-duplex conversation
  • Combine both directions of a full-duplex data stream in a single trace file
  • Utilize single USB probes for advanced monitoring or hardware reduction

Network Stability

  • Fault-tolerant
  • Ideal for 24x7 permanent access - Deploy tools or utilize TAP ports immediately without network traffic interruptions or the need for maintenance windows
  • Eliminate SPAN port contention, oversubscription, and configuration errors
  • Improve overall switch performance by removing port mirror degradation while freeing valuable ports
  • Link Failure Propagation for High Availability designed networks ensures instant switch to the secondary link to maintain 100% uptime


  • Unidirectional and invisible to other devices on the network making it impossible to access or infiltrate connected monitoring and analysis tools

Simple installation

  • USB Plug-and-play means simple and fast deployments
  • Compatible with most major operating systems: Windows, Linux, and Macintosh
  • Auto negotiates settings for 10/100/1000 Mbps network speeds
  • Auto-MDI/MDI-X
  • Single network break for permanent installation
  • Convenient mounting tabs for use with the optional 1U rackmount kit for up to 4 devices


  • Power over USB 3.0 or VersaPower TAP AC/DC power supply
  • Passes PoE (Power over Ethernet)
  • Failsafe inline design allows network connectivity in the event of a power failure
