Original Press Release:

IPCopper Announces Release of USC6042, the First Packet Capture Appliance with True Bypass and GPS Time Synch

PORTLAND, Ore. -- IPCopper, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the USC6042, the first full packet capture appliance with true bypass and GPS time synchronization with high capacity continuous loop storage in a compact robust package. Building on the strengths of its best-selling USC4060 packet capture appliance, IPCopper has done it again, providing great value and innovation to its customers. Packaged into the same sleek package, the USC6042 delivers more: more features, more accuracy, more ports and more versatility.

The USC6042's bypass "has your back" when needed most for crucial network operations: if the USC6042 appliance loses power or malfunctions, the ports automatically switch over to true bypass in the blink of an eye. Even with no power, the USC6042 passes network traffic through without affecting it in the slightest. Bypass mode may also be engaged remotely when always-on recording is not needed, making spot monitoring of network traffic a breeze.

As a multipurpose tool with inline and dedicated SPAN/mirror port modes, it makes simultaneous full data recording of up to four networks a practical and affordable exercise for any business or organization, including all the right features for both busy IT departments and businesses with no permanent IT staff. The USC6042's GPS time synchronization also brings timestamping to a whole new level, delivering consistent accuracy to the one-one millionth of a second. When analyzing network activity, accurate timestamping makes the difference between just getting a picture of the traffic and precisely knowing what happened.

To match the USC6042's versatility requires a network tap, a packet capture appliance and a bypass switch or two. The USC6042 combines these elements and more, speeding up deployment, simplifying management and reducing costs, while adding unparalleled GPS time synchronized timestamping to high-performance packet recording.

The USC6042 also covers all bases when it comes to data security. With its integrated secure storage that features 20,000-bit always on dual encryption, an external key, physical access control, a stealthy network profile, tamperproof enclosure and access logging, IPCopper delivers great value and security. The management utility communicates with the unit via an encrypted, disguised connection, protecting the captured data from end to end.

The USC6042 joins our popular USC4060 packet capture appliance in providing businesses and offices of all sizes reliable, functional and practical tools for monitoring and managing computer networks. IPCopper is pleased to offer a discount of up to 25% on all pre-orders of the USC6042; for more details please visit
