Panduit tapped fiber cassettes for passive network monitoring
By Alyssa Dalton
August 19, 2014 – Panduit has expanded its QuickNet cassette line to include tapped fiber optic cassettes, which work with diagnostic and test equipment to provide visibility into network traffic, it says.
According to the company, these tools help data centre managers troubleshoot networking problems, monitor network performance to optimize operations, and maintain compliance with regulations. Tapped fiber cassettes operate like standard cassettes, but also feature a passive fiber optic splitter to send a copy of all link traffic to diagnostic and test equipment, notes Panduit, adding that the cassettes feature a thin-film filter-based optical splitter technology that provides the most accurate split ratios and lowest insertion loss in the market today.
