iLink Agg Fiber - 8 Inline Gigabit Fiber Taps
With 24 ports in a 1U form-factor, Net Optics iLink Agg is the industry’s highest port density 1 Gigabit link aggregator designed for monitoring applications. It enables a pool of monitoring tools to be applied to as many as 8 bidirectional networks (using integrated in-line Taps), with fully configurable port mapping. Aggregate traffic from any link. Regenerate monitor streams to multiple ports. Configure links to tools in a 1-to-1 mapping. The iLink Agg supports any configuration—monitor ports can also be used as additional network span ports, and you can even split a cable and use the RX fiber for a network connection and the TX fiber for a monitor connection, increasing the potential number of ports to 24 network plus 8 monitor. Models are available supporting single mode and multimode fiber on the network side, and SFP ports to support any interface types on monitoring tools. When required, data rate conversion between network ports and monitor ports is automatic.
Manage the iLink Agg locally or remotely. Management features include SSH security, Web UI, role-based access, RADIUS and TACACS+ authentication and authorization, RMON traffic statistics, and remote software upgrades. All of the integrated fiber Taps in the iLink Agg are fully passive, keeping traffic flowing even when the device is not powered. For additional reliability, the iLink Agg features hot-swappable redundant power supplies.
