“We have 25 years’ experience working in this industry and seeing the remarkable advances in networking technology firsthand,” explained Comcraft’s Laurent Schirck. “Our in-line products are used around the world to deliver straightforward and affordable network monitoring without introducing errors or failures. With the F8MY-SR4, we’ve brought that same high standard for performance and reliability to 40G-SR4 networks, keeping Comcraft at the leading edge of the technology.”

As a connectivity product, the new F8MY-SR4 tap can be deployed with packet flow switches, security tools and consolidating tools; practical applications include network monitoring and protocol analysis. Network and data professionals can parse any information necessary from the network stream for a variety of data analyses.

Comcraft’s newest addition to its line of network taps builds on past success, while also prizing innovation and allowing for more than adequate versatility. The F8MY-SR4 is an in-line product, enabling quiet monitoring of all network traffic. More importantly, Comcraft fiber optic taps are passive, non-powered devices that introduce no errors into the stream and are never a point of failure.

Quality and stability are the hallmarks of Comcraft products, and the newest model of network tap is no exception. Made of the highest quality components, the F8MY-SR4 pushes the density limit for this class of network appliance.

Comcraft has ambitious plans for continued innovation in the network hardware space. The company has achieved a worldwide reputation for delivering security, monitoring and testing capacities that meet the demands of enterprise and data center customers. In the near future, Comcraft plans to develop a 100G-SR10 fiber optic tap that will signal the opening of the next frontier in traffic density and hardware reliability.
