The major advantage of this concept is easy expansion and installation. Consider a situation where there are 21 single TAPs deployed. In this case, 42 power cords would be required and such a large number of power cords can easily lead to a tangled mess. Compared to other solutions with separate TAPs, the new FlexTAP has only two power connectors for 21 TAPs.
The flexible and easy to install solution consists of 4 parts:
- 10/100/1000 TAP blade
- 19″ inch rack
- Power module (230 V DC or 48 DC)
- Fan module
