See Data Sheets

A Network TAP provides a "Test Access Port" for analyzing high-speed networks in half or full duplex mode . When operating high-speed, high-capacity, data communications systems it is often necessary to monitor and analyze traffic with an absolute minimum disturbance to the data stream.  Network taps provide inexpensive, permanent access ports throughout the network, enabling monitoring and analysis without interrupting transmission.
