Profitap Booster

Network Packet Broker Optimizer

The Booster is our signature solution for improving your monitoring system’s density at a significantly lower cost than ever before possible. Network Packet Brokers can be extremely expensive appliances, making each and every available input port an invaluable asset.

The Booster transmits traffic from up to 8 ports (4 in-line links or 8 SPAN ports) into a single NPB port as opposed to the typically required 8. By optimizing the number of used ports on your Network Packet Broker, the Booster allows for unprecedented savings and outstanding return on investment.

The Booster also enables a significant reduction in occupied rack space. The PROFITAP Booster is quickly recognized as an imperative instrument for reducing budgetary and rack space costs.
