NuTAP (10/100 Base-T)

8 Network and 1 Monitor UTP ports Wirespeed Active TAP


NuTAP provides a safe, secure and cost-effective way for the deployment of IDS sensor into full-duplex links by aggregating both directions of the full-duplex streams on up to 4 different network segments into a single 1000Mbps monitoring port. The IDS sensors could then see both conversations on each side of the monitored network segments with only one interface. Because the IDS sensor is hidden behind the TAP, it’s shielded from direct attacks from the link being monitored.

Completely passive and non-intrusive to the network segment being monitored, NuTAP provides access to all network traffic from both sides of a full duplex link. Allowing network monitoring or analysis tools to be dynamically inserted into the network segment without causing any disruption to the link.

NuTAP can be used with professional analyzers from Xtramus, or third party LAN and security analyzers. Together, they provide an effective way for probing or analyzing full-duplex traffic on single or multiple network links that cannot be achieved by using traditional methods such as Hub, Port Spanning / Mirroring.

System features

  • Active TAP based on store-and-forward architecture.
  • 1 x 3 LEDs for NuTAP status, including Power, System and Blank/Oneshot.
  • 1 x 3 LEDs for real-time link status of monitor port, including 10/100M or 1000M link speed and Act/Link status.
  • 8 (ports) x 14 (status)LEDs for real-time display of traffic events including packet types, collisions, and errors.
  • Built-in filter for redirecting traffic from specific network port(s) to the monitoring port via 8 dip switches.
  • Supports Power-over-Ethernet devices.
  • Firmware and FPGA are upgradeable via RS-232 port.


  • Traffic monitoring and analysis by networking device developers and/or network operators
