Niagara 3416 is a TAP system that is capable of fully monitoring 4 network segments at Gigabit speeds. The Niagara 3416 can support multiple configurations as well as supports copper, Multi-Mode fiber and Single-Mode fiber media. The system architecture is designed for flexibility and each segment can be configured to operate in various modes including aggregation, packet injection, multiple port monitoring and traffic filtering in layer 2, layer 3 and layer 4. The system supports a full suite of secure management including industry-standard management and logging tools.

The TAP features include two main TAP options, Split TAP Mode and Split TAP Link Aggregation Mode. Additionally, each TAP option can be configured to allow packet injection from the monitoring appliances.

The system provides flexible and intuitive CLI and GUI management features including secure web UI via an HTTPS connection, secure shell (SSH), SNMP, e-mail notification for special events, and failover method configuration. An authentication client capable of interfacing with authentication servers like TACACS+ is integrated into the system. In addition, the TAP system possesses Syslog support, enabling consolidation of log data from various systems into a central repository. This feature provides management, traceability and security auditing across a wide variety of devices and receivers on multiple platforms.
