I've used both NetOptics and Datacom Systems taps.  I've been using
both for years now and only had one of each fail.  Neither failed in a
manner that interrupted the link being monitored.

They both do a range of units, from simple units up to monsters such
as the GigaVUE Ropetin suggests.

                 Please keep list traffic on the list.
