Datacom Network Tap VS-1212-F - VERSAstream 10G/1G Network Packet Broker with Data Filtering/Load Balancing, 12 SFP+ ports, Dual hot swappable AC or DC pwr supplies. Network Tap Speed X - NA and Monitoring Tool Speed 100/1000BASE-TX or 10G.

The VERSAstream VS-1212 is a 12 Port Any-to-Any network monitoring switch with Load Balancing and Packet Filtering that can combine data from multiple Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet network segments into one or more streams of data. Use it to balance traffic across multiple ports as the volume of data increases. Instead of tools attempting to keep up with high-speed aggregates traffic streams, the VERSAstream can apply packet filters to the data to increase tool efficiency and eliminate port oversubscription. Line-rate hardware filtering on each port allows you to customize and streamline the amount and type of data each connected monitoring tool receives. Because they are receiving only traffic of interest, tools run faster, data is more manageable, and issues are resolved quicker.


  • Port Steering Any-to-Any ports allow traffic aggregation and copies to multiple tools
