Connecting the AMD Communication Port to the Network

Use the AMD communication port to connect to the network for communication purposes. A report server or other devices will access the AMD through this port.

Connecting AMD Sniffing Ports to the Monitor Switch Traffic

Traffic to and from a switch can be monitored by connecting an AMD sniffing port to a mirrored port on the switch or to a splitter tap. Connecting to a tap is usually different for copper and for fiber cables, in that two copper cables are usually required, while taps operating over fiber have a single output socket, combining both directions of the traffic. This requires a Y-analyzer patch cord. It consists of one connector at one end and two connectors at the other, the AMD end.
