The Skinny Network Tap is a completely unpowered network tap for wired Ethernet connections. Monitor network traffic to or from a wired target by simply plugging a monitoring computer into the transmit or receive port of the tap. The network tap can accommodate 10/100 Mbps connections as well as PoE devices. For gigabit devices, the Skinny Network Tap forces gigabit devices to down shift to 10/100 Mbps mode. This allows your monitoring device to still be able to capture traffic from the appropriate port at the appropriate speed.
Version 3 of the tap has been modified to more easily tap some gigabit, PoE network switches. Most commercial passive network taps introduce loading on the line which causes problems to the PoE end device. This new design fights to alleviate that issue.
