[ISSForum] Network taps for monitoring full-duplex network with Proventia G2000
I am considering deploying a G2000 which will eventually go inline but will
probably start in passive IDS mode. In the interim, is it possible to deploy
it to passively monitor a full duplex network segment with a standard
NetOptics network tap? It seems to me that it must be possible for the
appliance to accept each of the two cables from the tap and perform some
intelligent re-ordering and aggregation of those streams in such a way that
packets avoid being dropped. Am I understanding this problem correctly and
if so, is this functionality built into the appliance?
Incidentally, I've looked at various aggregation taps on the market, but
since they aggregate all traffic onto one wire, then they can't handle more
than 1Gbps into the IDS -- whereas a full-duplex link could be up to 2Gbps
Thanks for any insight, Jim.
